"Who when he came, and had seen the grace of God, was glad, and exhorted them all, that with purpose of heart they would cleave unto the Lord." Acts 11:23
IN JESUS TODAY!
Have you seen the grace of God? While you answer that let me ask you this also, Can others tell that you have seen it? Can they tell that you have seen his grace? If the only things that others see in us is sadness, sorrow, unhappiness, complaining, bitterness and the like, then we are not showing to them the grace of God that we have seen! To show others that we have seen and received God's grace we must show them that we are glad, we must show them joy and happiness! It is with this joy and happiness that we show his grace. It is after seeing his grace in us that others will be lifted up with hope! If you have seen his grace then show it to the world! Don't hide it, as it is written, "Yet if any man suffer as a Christian, let him not be ashamed; but let him glorify God on this behalf." 1 Peter 4:16 Let us not be ashamed of this grace. Has God answered your prayer, has he done anything for you? Of course he has! Now let us tell others with gladness! So much more for God's kingdom is accomplished when we show our gladness and rejoice, for this same cause God commands us to rejoice, as it is written, "Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice." Philippians 4:4
So let us all tell others how glad we are for the Lord Jesus and for all that he has done for us! Did you know that you can open doors into the heart of others just by being glad? Let us win souls, let us win them with gladness!
