Joy of the Holy Spirit

JOY OF THE HOLY SPIRIT

 

1Th 1:2-6  We give thanks to God always for all of you, constantly mentioning you in our prayers, remembering before our God and Father your work of faith and labor of love and steadfastness of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ.  For we know, brothers loved by God, that he has chosen you, because our gospel came to you not only in word, but also in power and in the Holy Spirit and with full conviction. You know what kind of men we proved to be among you for your sake. And you became imitators of us and of the Lord, for you received the word in much affliction, with the joy of the Holy Spirit.


Yesterday we had a delightful day with the beloved believers in the Elyria Ohio area.  And even some from further away.  Craig came up from Troy and Lisa and Ken, from Cleveland.  We ate and fellowshipped and heard fireworks till way past midnight.  It was a little taste of heaven on earth.  God’s family gathering and enjoying sweet fellowship. Rejoicing at the goodness of our Father.  Bob grilled and Debbie helped prepare the food: kids, grandchildren and fun, fun, fun.  The kids were singing the BIBLE song.  We laughed and cried at the greatness of Father’s love, and all our Lord Jesus Christ has accomplished on our behalf.  Everyone brought food to share and stories of Father’s goodness.  To me there is nothing sweeter in this life than the gathering of the family.  It was joy beyond, it cannot be measured.  


Rom 15:5-7  May the God of endurance and encouragement grant you to live in such harmony with one another, in accord with Christ Jesus, that together you may with one voice glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.  Therefore welcome one another as Christ has welcomed you, for the glory of God.


Nothing sweeter than the family gathering.
