Things that are common to the genuine saint #2

Posted by appolus on December 24, 2019

Things that are common to the genuine saint #2 …..Having the genuine joy of God. Now this joy is not the joy of the world nor as the world knows it. It is very much related to that part of the spirit that is ever connected to the presence of God. The world’s definition of joy is “a feeling of great pleasure or happiness.” Yet this is not the joy of the saint. The saint’s joy is not rooted nor does it spring from the soulish realm of feelings. It is an activity of the spirit which produces joy from our very relationship to the Lord. It is sensed in its greatest depths when, at least as far as the world can see, there is absolutely no reason for pleasure or happiness at all. The essence of the joy of the saint is to know that he is loved and that the Lord is with him in whatever his circumstances are. This produces an inner happiness and contentment when there should be none and it is one of the great strengths of the saints. It is also a testimony to the genuine nature of their relationship with the Lord. It emanates out from the spirit, though the soul and manifests itself in the flesh for all the world to see. This kind of joy cannot be counterfeited. Whatever is dominant in the life of the saint will be seen by all when the fire burns the hottest. When the smoke clears the world will know who is His.

    Blessings to you Brrother Frank, I would like to add this verse to a consideration of the joy of the saint that is only known by those who have had the glory of Jesus revealed to them.

    “The kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and covered up. Then in his joy he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field. – Matthew 13:44

    Our joy is that we have had a treasure revealed to our hearts in the beauty and glory of Jesus and have received that treasure as the fullest satisfaction of our deepest desires now and forevermore.
