“And do not be grieved, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.” – Nehemiah 8:10b
When confronted with the truth of our sin, we might easily fall into grief or despair.
But God intends for us joy. He sent His Son, Jesus Christ, to die and take away our sins that we might live in newness of life (Romans 6:4) and have joy in the salvation He brings (Habakkuk 3:18).
So do not weep over your sins. In Christ Jesus, they are forgiven. He makes all things new. Rejoice in Him and be glad!
