04-04-2024 Sirach 30 V22 Person’s life is a heart of gladness

The Book of Sirach Ch 30 v- 22

22 Gladness of heart is the very life of a person, and cheerfulness prolongs his days.

Salvation in Jesus Christ is not just a one-time event or a mere ticket to heaven. It is a transformational experience that brings joy, peace, and purpose to a person's life. It is the very essence of life, the source of true gladness that sustains and nourishes the soul.

When a person accepts Jesus as their Savior, they are filled with a deep sense of gratitude and hope. They are forgiven of their sins and set free from the burden of guilt and shame. They are adopted into the family of God and given a new identity as a beloved child of God. This realization brings a joy that surpasses all understanding, a gladness that cannot be taken away by any circumstance or trial.

The joy of salvation in Jesus Christ is not just a fleeting emotion but a deep and abiding sense of peace and contentment. It is a joy that sustains a person through the ups and downs of life, giving them strength and courage to face whatever challenges come their way. It is a joy that transcends the temporary pleasures of this world and gives meaning and purpose to every moment of life.

Cheerfulness in Jesus Christ prolongs a person's days in more ways than one. Physically, studies have shown that people who have a positive outlook on God and Jesus as their Savior tend to live longer and healthier lives. Emotionally, the joy of salvation in Jesus Christ helps a person to cope with stress, anxiety, and depression. Spiritually, the joy of salvation in Jesus Christ gives a person a sense of eternal perspective, reminding them that this life is just a temporary journey towards their ultimate destination in heaven.

The gladness of heart that comes from salvation in Jesus Christ is not dependent on external circumstances. It is a joy that flows from a deep relationship with God, a joy that is independent of wealth, success, or popularity. It is a joy that is rooted in the love of God, a love that never fails and never fades.

Salvation in Jesus Christ is a gladness of heart that is the very life of a person. It is a source of cheerfulness that prolongs their days and sustains them through every season of life. It is a joy that surpasses all understanding and transforms every aspect of their being. May we all experience the true joy of salvation in Jesus Christ and live our lives with a gladness of heart that shines brightly for all to see. Amen.

Join me as we pray our daily prayer of forgiveness. The Lord’s Prayer.

At the Savior's command and formed by divine teaching, we dare to say:

Our Father, who art in heaven, hallowed be thy name; thy kingdom come, thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, and forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those who trespass against us; and lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil. Deliver us, Lord, we pray, from every evil, graciously grant peace in our days, that, by the help of your mercy, we may be always free from sin and safe from all distress, as we await the blessed hope and the coming of our Savior, Jesus Christ. For the kingdom, the power and the glory are yours now and for ever. Amen.

I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Please forgive me as I forgive others. I share You as my Lord and Savior seeking to live your Will in all things. Prayers for wife Toni and my mother Betty pray for our children especially our two oldest Alexandra & Allen Son in Law Mark Stern; Julian, Gabriel and Jeffrey and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. We pray for those we’ve said we’d pray for and those who’ve asked us to pray for them. We pray for the dying as we do each day Lord give them peace in their last breath. We pray for Holy Mother Church. Our prayers for our niece Brittany. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Salvation Gladness**

Gladness in Salvation, a treasure so rare,

It fills the soul with joy beyond compare.

It is the very life of a person, obviously they say,

And cheerfulness in Christ prolongs his very days.

With a smile that lights up the darkest night,

Gladness of heart shines ever so bright.

It lifts the spirit, it soothes the mind,

And leaves all worries far behind.

In times of trouble, in moments of despair,

Gladness of Salvation is always there.

It brings hope and comfort, it heals the pain,

And fills the heart with peace again.

So let us cherish this gift so dear,

And spread its magic far and near.

For gladness of Salvation is the key to a happy life,

And with it, we can conquer any strife. Amen.
