1 John 1:4 says, “And these things we write to you that your joy may be full.”
Our joy. How can we have full joy by the things that John writes? It really is simple. We choose to believe that the things written in the Bible are true and we receive them in our own spirit as being true for us, personally. When we read all Jesus has done for us through the sacrifice of His body and His blood, the magnitude of His gift is overwhelming. As we assimilate this magnificent gift into our understanding and choose to believe even what we don’t yet understand, we can’t help but shout for joy. He bought us back from the enemy! Satan owned us, even if we felt completely in control of our lives, we belonged to Satan and Jesus paid the purchase price to get us back. The Blood of Jesus pays for our healing, our prosperity, our security, our peace, our redemption and the list goes on!
Writing has been in my blood, so to speak, but when I surrendered my life to Jesus Christ and He told me to write, all my trepidations rolled away and I began in earnest! After all, if God Almighty says it was His idea that I be a writer, who am I to stand in His way? My hope is that you not only like what I write, but that your life is moved by it, and that your party to Jesus and with Jesus turns your life into days of Heaven on Earth.
