What is the source of a Christian’s joy? The other day I was feeling full of joy and was wondering why. Then I remembered an old chorus which I hadn’t sung in years but which I often sang when I first became a believer and explained every thing. Today’s devotional is that chorus and I hope it shows you the fountain of real joy. God bless you.
Because of Calvary,
Micah 7:18-19 (ESV)
18 Who is a God like you, pardoning iniquity
and passing over transgression
for the remnant of his inheritance?
He does not retain his anger forever,
because he delights in steadfast love.
19 He will again have compassion on us;
he will tread our iniquities underfoot.
You will cast all our sins
into the depths of the sea.
“MY SINS ARE GONE
“Gone, gone, gone, gone!
Yes, my sins are gone.
Now my soul is free,
And in my heart’s a song;
Buried in the deepest sea,
Yes, that’s good enough for me;
I shall live eternally,
Praise God! My sins are gone!”
