Bold! Unashamed! JOY-filled!!!

            Have you had your Joy Juice today?  Drink it ABUNDANTLY!

            If you are one of the joyful people who has Jesus in your heart, be ready to share the good news with others. When folks ask why you can be so joy-filled, tell them that they, too, can find their own personal servings of Joy by going to the “storehouse” of God’s Word.  Show them verses in Scripture that explain how to have a relationship with Christ!  That’s where God’s special servings of  Joy are available for anyone who asks. 

            Some people find it difficult to tell others about how to have a personal relationship with Jesus. Maybe they just don’t know how….or maybe they are ashamed to talk about their faith.  When we are truly…100% …sold out to Christ, then we should have a boldness that supersedes any embarrassment or shyness we may have about the things of God .  In Romans 1: 16 – 17, Paul makes this proclamation: 

“For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes..."

            When Paul wrote this, he was undoubtedly, unswervingly, completely certain of what he believed….and he was not ashamed!  Are we that committed to our faith?  When we reach that level of spiritual maturity---when we are no long ashamed of Christ and share with others about His love and forgiveness---then we will experience ABUNDANT JOY!

           Be bold! Be unashamed! And be joy-filled!
