The Joy and Power of Experiencing God
- What would you say of a person for whom God chose to die and in that death paid his every spiritual debt — one who is loved by God, accepted, forgiven, assured of Heaven, and promised God’s continual presence, blessing, and protection?
- We would say that person would be the most thankful and happiest person alive. We would take for granted he or she would live in constant enjoyment of God Himself.
- Every Christian has such a legal relationship with God. The tragedy is that, for most of us, it is only a legal relationship. It is His express will that we enjoy Him.
- This joy is not the contentment that comes when things are going well. It is enjoying God Himself -- as we experience His presence, love, peace, and power in daily fellowship.
