Rejoice in the Lord alway: and again I say, Rejoice. --Philippians 4:4
'The joy of salvation —what is it? 1]It is the joyous sense of deliverance, or of escape from impending doom (Ps 7:11-13). 2] It is the joyous sense of pardon, or conscious freedom from condemnation (Rom 8:1). 3] It is the joyous sense of hope, impelling, victorious, and assuring hope, with full and perfect anchorage (Heb. 6:19). 4] It is the joyous sense of peace, that peace which passeth all understanding, even the peace of standing in the grace of God (Rom 5:1-2). 5] It is the joyous sense of assurance, assurance which comes because believers know that they are God’s sheep and that they are held in the hands of the Father and of the Son (Jn 10:27-29).' (The Baptist Challenge)
