Meditation 4/17 - 4/23: Be Filled With Joy - Rms 15:7-13 NLT

May you be filled with joy

Therefore, accept each other just as Christ has accepted you so that God will be given glory. Remember that Christ came as a servant to the Jews to show that God is true to the promises he made to their ancestors. He also came so that the Gentiles might give glory to God for his mercies to them. That is what the psalmist meant when he wrote:

"For this, I will praise you among the Gentiles;
I will sing praises to your name."

And in another place it is written,

"Rejoice with his people,
you Gentiles."

And yet again,

 

"Praise the Lord, all you Gentiles.
Praise him, all you people of the earth."

And in another place Isaiah said,

"The heir to David's throne will come,
and he will rule over the Gentiles.
They will place their hope on him."

I pray that God, the source of hope, will fill you completely with joy and peace because you trust in him. Then you will overflow with confident hope through the power of the Holy Spirit.

Romans 15:7-13 NLT
