The things I love

The treasures of the kingdom of God are great. There are several things in God that are especially delightful to me. One, the presence of the Lord, both in my own soul and in the fellowship with other believers. I don't mean some vague thing, but the very power of His love and might. The deep stiring and great joy, the moving and bubbling forth of the Spirit in my intermost being. This salvation of being born of God is more than my mind or language could express. But I have the rejoicing and worship in my spirit. I love that I can feel God working in me by the Spirit. The sighs, the groaning, the welling up of love to tears. The joy springing up into laughter and songs. The power of His healing balm, the faith to believe all things are possible, and to rejoice in victory over all evil.

I would have been enough for me to be forgiven. To be assigned a place to work for God as a servant. I would have been gratful just to have been admitted to be allowed in His Kingdom. But Oh!, what a Great God we have. As the prodical son I have been made His son, His very own! He has lavished His love upon me and I am now His. How can the heart ever express the overwhelming joy? What act can I do to express my gratitude? My mind can't fathom the blessing that God has bestowed upon me. If I act a little emotional now don't think me strange. It would be stranger if I didn't! Besides, if you think I get carried away now, wait until you see me in Glory! As Paul said, "if I am beside myself it is unto God, if I am in my right mind it is for you".
