ON THE TRUE CHRISTIAN LIFE
By Glenn H. Jackson
book of the law [the Word of God] shall not depart from [always be in] your mouth, but you shall meditate on it day and night,
so that you may be careful [take heed] to do according to all that is written in it; for THEN you will make your way prosperous, and THEN you will have success".... Joshua 1:8 NASB
*____ ...."But an hour is coming, and now is, when the true worshipers will worship the Father in spirit and truth; for such people the Father seeks to
be His worshipers. God is spirit, and those who worship Him must worship in spirit and truth".... John 4:23-24 NASB
____There is a reward for true worship;
Indeed, there are many rewards, they are of the wealth of Heaven and are un-tarnishable and can never be lost.
____The first is peace of soul; for holy Love
silences the demands of the flesh man. When holy Love rises to the Throne of God, it releases a golden river of Grace which floods the hearts of those who thus love God and overflows to others for whom they pray.
____Rest of soul is joy in its purest form. Absence of inner peace causes common moments of joy to be fleeting. Lasting joy evades the selfish, and peace eludes the unyielded, because the motivations are contrary
to the purposes of God, and the goals sought do not glorify Him.
