“Your Consolation Brought Joy To My Soul”

Preacher: Rev. John Mercer
Date: 28 February 2010
Readings: Psalm 94, Romans 8:18-39

If the grace of God is at work in the believer, the world cannot take away his joy. Trouble may jostle together to get at us, but we should not be surprised; If we seek to live like Jesus in this world it will treat us as it did Him, John 16:33.

When troubles come, we should go at once to God, our source of peace, and immediately cast all of our cares on Him who cares for us. What an encouragement it is to consider that we can rely on the God who bought us with the blood of His Son to not only take away our grief (though not necessarily the troubles) and replace it with His joy.

Listen here.
