Question for you this morning; Are you happy as a Christian? Are you enjoying the Christian life? If you aren’t, you can be.
In Psalms 51 David prays, “Restore to me the joy of your salvation, and make me willing to obey you.”
Why had David lost his joy? It was because of sin in his life. David had an affair with Bathsheba and because of that, his joy was gone.
VWe may have unconfessed sin in our lives and it is stealing our joy. We may have that sin because we are afraid to confess it. We may think we can’t be forgiven, but that’s not true. We can be forgiven if we will humble ourselves before the Lord.
David wrote in Psalms 32:1, “How blessed is he whose transgression is forgiven, Whose sin is covered!”
David has experienced forgiveness and we can too.
Maybe you have started doing some things you shouldn’t be doing. It has robbed your joy as a Christian. Confess those before the Lord and you can be forgiven. Maybe you aren’t enjoying the Christian life like you once were. It’s likely because of unconfessed sin in your life. Confess that before the Lord and you can be forgiven.
Your joy can be restored. You can enjoy living for Christ.
