Psalm 66:1-20 (NIV) Shout with joy to God, all the earth! …Say to God, "How awesome are your deeds! …Come and see what God has done …let me tell you what he has done for me. Praise be to God, who has not rejected my prayer or withheld his love from me!
And we, who with unveiled faces all reflect the Lord's glory, are being transformed into his likeness with ever-increasing glory, which comes from the Lord, who is the Spirit.
Therefore, when Christ came into the world, he said: "Sacrifice and offering you did not desire, but a body you prepared for me….he said, "Here I am, I have come to do your will." He sets aside the first to establish the second. And by that will, we have been made holy through the sacrifice of the body of Jesus Christ once for all...
But when this priest had offered for all time one sacrifice for sins, he sat down at the right hand of God. Since that time he waits for his enemies to be made his footstool, because by one sacrifice he has made perfect forever those who are being made holy.
Joy Comes from knowing God has pity for the needy, 48-49
Joy comes from knowing God responds to those who fear him, 50-53
Joy comes from knowing God still treasures his people Israel,and keeps his promises, 54-55
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.
