TWINS

There are lots of twins mentioned in the Bible. I'm not talking about physical twins, but spiritual twins. One set of twins are RIGHTEOUSNESS and JOY! Sometimes we imagine that righteousness is associated with legality and seriousness. How do we get these strange ideas? God links them together.

Talking of Jesus, Hebrews 1:8-9 tells us, "Thou hast loved righteousness, and hated iniquity, therefore God, even thy God, hath anointed thee with the oil of gladness above thy fellows." This is not ordinary joy, but joy more than anyone else.

Shouldn't we have the same attitude as our Savior? We should also love righteousness and hate evil. In other words, we are to be a friend to righteousness and an enemy of evil. This requires action! We have to actively go after righteousness. We have to actively hate evil and do something about it (Psalm 97:10; Proverbs 8:13; Ephesians 5:11).

When we have this attitude, our twin JOY will accompany us. Isn't that great?

Have a joyful day. Love from Nancy
