“You will teach me how to live a holy life. Being with you will fill me with joy; at your right hand I will find pleasure forever.”
Psalms 16:11 NCV
The lord teaches the path or the way of life, and that path leads to a holy life. In His presence is holy living as well as joyful living. The pleasures of eternity are at his right hand. He is in eternity and living in His presence will lead to joy and holiness.
The pleasure of eternity and the joy of today are tied to a holy life, and that life can only be found by living in the presence of JESUS! Living in his precedence provides joy and a life lived on purpose. Joy is not an activity, rather joy is a location..in His presence!
Lord help us to live in your presence and pursue you, in the pursuit of you we will find joy and holiness and the pleasures of eternity!
Today is a great day to pursue Jesus! My morning SOAP!
“This is a faithful saying and worthy of all acceptance, that Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners, of whom I am the worst. But I received mercy for this reason, that in me, first, Jesus Christ might show all patience, as an example to those who were to believe in Him for eternal life.”1 Timothy 1:15-16 MEV
Paul says he is the worst of sinners. Jesus came into this world to save, but to also show mercy and patience so those that are going to believe will see MERCY and PATIENCE lived out in us and come to Christ.
Nobody’s perfect…the greatest hangup some may have is the fact that we serve a perfect God, but we are imperfect people. He died for the messed up and jacked up and he continually shows patience to those that are on the journey of faith, so that those that are about to be on the journey can have HOPE!
Lord help us to embrace grace and understand patience…so that others can see our lives and desire to follow Jesus and not follow us.
