enJOY Salvation 

“Restore to me the joy of Your salvation,

And uphold me by Your generous Spirit.”

(Psalm 51:12)
I will introduce this post saying, GOD DESIRES HIS CHILDREN TO BE JOYFUL

God desires for you to be full of joy. Many people don’t experience the joy of salvation because they are too busty trying to sustain it. Instead of serving God out of the transformation and passion of the heart, many toil and stress themselves to the point of guilt. They view Heavenly Father as a gray-haired judge who is ready to smite. They toil to reach perfection not understanding that we are blameless in Christ, as a free gift. We just need faith. Faith will give us the rest that Jesus offers. 

This is rest from

  • Guilt/condemnation
  • Burdens of 100%, flawlessness
  • The unsurity of salvation
  • Ignorance of God’s love

My friend, our relationship with Jesus is rest, not burden. It is freedom not slavery. It is transformation not demand. If following Jesus makes you feel overwhelmed, stressed, depressed, or burdened by the weight of a demand for perfection, you are completely lacking the JOY of salvation. Jesus saved your soul, crowned you as a king, allowed heaven to you, put a robe on you, gave you His righteousness. You see it? It’s time for you to release the self-burden and “enJOY Salvation.”
