I will go to the altar of God, to God—the source of all my joy.
Psalms 43:4 (NLT)

We were made for joy. That is because God created us to fellowship with Him and it is in this relationship that we find real lasting joy. It is the deep realization of how much He really loves us, how much He delights in us that cause us to spend time with Him. Like David, we will run to the altar, not an altar of brick and mortar but the altar of our heart. It is this “remaining in His love” that we have a joyful fellowship with God. Jesus said it this way, “I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey my commandments, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!” The secret is remaining in His love. So today, come to the altar of God, come in joyful anticipation. Come with the full realization that He loves you like the most loving Father in the universe would love their child. Rejoice, be glad, remain in His love and let your joy in Him overflow.

Dear loving Father, how I thank You for Your deep love for me. I come today to Your altar to worship and spend time with You. Today, help me to remain in the full awareness of Your love, so that my joy will be full.

About Ronald

I am a Christian who deeply believes in God and the purposes He has put us on earth for. I started in ministry when I was 20 years old. I have been involved in both evangelism and compassion ministires. I deeply believe in our mission to help those in need. I believe however,that the church has missed our calling. We have not been effective in loving others as we would love ourselves. We have not been using our Spiritual Gifts to make a difference in this world. We have not mobilized to be the salt and light in the world. The goal of this web site is to help those interested to use their Spiritual Gifts in order to fulfill the mission Christ has given us to love the world.
