Psalm32.  “Rejoice ye Righteous” Wed December 14, 2016, 7pm

 

Jesus said that those that accept him as savior, should rejoice always in the salvation, that faith in Jesus brings. Jesus made it clear in Luke 10:20 not to rejoice in our works, but that through Jesus’ death on the cross, that our name is written in the Lamb’s book of life. Luke 10:20 Nevertheless in this rejoice not, that the spirits are subject unto you; but rejoice that your names are written in heaven.

 

Not only can we rejoice in that we are saved through Jesus’ blood and righteousness, but that through Jesus, our sins have been forgiven. We are called to be strait forward with GOD about our sins. That means we do not seek to find an excuse for our sin, but we acknowledge that what we have done is sin, if the Bible says it is sin.

 

GOD has promised to instruct us in the way we should go. With the power of the Holy Spirit, which has been given to us, when we accept Jesus as our savior, GOD has printed our instructions, called the Bible. We must confer with the Bible constantly to seek instructions and to make sure we have a clear understanding of what our instructions are. Avoid taking things out of context, using one line of scripture to determine our actions.

 

We are instructed to not be like the mule and have to be forced to do the right thing. Unlike the mule, we have free will and can choose to do whatever we please.

 

Be glad and rejoice and shout for joy, that we are reconciled to GOD and our future is secure.

  1. Rejoice that our sins are forgiven. 1-2
  2. Burdens are heavy when sins are not confessed.3-4
  3. Happiness restored when I confessed my sins and thou forgave. 5-7
  4. Do not be like and old mule, Let GOD guide, 8-9
  5. Be glad in the Lord and rejoice ye righteous. 10-11
