ANGELIC INSPIRATIONS - In Your presence is fullness of joy...Ps. 16: 11
Rejoice in the Lord!

Philippians 4:4-“Rejoice in the Lord always, again I will say, rejoice!”

Paul reminds the Philippian saints of their responsibility to honor the Lord. Believers should always rejoice in the Lord because it is He who keeps us unified. We are tied together with Jesus as joint heirs, Romans 8:17. Philippians 3:1 state, “Finally my brethren, rejoice in the Lord!” MacArthur writes, “to rejoice is the sphere in which the believer’s joy exists-a sphere unrelated to the circumstances of life, but related to an unassailable, unchanging relationship to the sovereign Lord.” Jesus Christ should always be the sphere of our influence. He is our focal point and nothing should be placed above Him. He should be placed above our differences. Just as the Holy Spirit always points the finger to Jesus Christ, we must always make him our reference, our source, our guide, our shield, our direction, our resolution, and our hope. So, we must always “Rejoice in the Lord, ” and as Paul states, “and again, I say Rejoice!
