Getting To Know God
His name is...
The Majestic God - Wonderful - LOVE - Trinity
The Joy Of The Lord
The LORD your God in your midst, The Mighty One, will save; He will rejoice over you with gladness, He will quiet [you] with His love, He will rejoice over you with singing."
What pleases God? According to the Bible, we as His people please Him! God rejoices over us! This is difficult to understand. The Bible says that none are righteous. The Bible says that together, we have all become unprofitable. The Bible says our righteousness is like filthy rags before Him. Our sinful nature is offensive to God. Why would He rejoice over us? This is the extent of God’s love: He revealed Himself in flesh to forgive our offenses and impart His Spirit in order to conform us unto His image. He saves us from ourselves to make us like Him. He doesn’t rejoice over whom we are, but whom He will make us like… Jesus!
