Bishop’s Heart to Heart

“The Cost of Real Joy-John 16:23, KJV”


“Hello beloved, I trust this Heart to Heart will find your heart opened and receptive to God’s word and that you are full of joy today.”

“In John’s gospel chapter sixteen commencing at verse twenty-three, Jesus says, And in that day ye shall ask me nothing. Verily, verily, I say unto you, Whatsoever ye shall ask the Father in my name, he will give it you.”

“When we talk about the cost of real joy, the answer to that is time in prayer. Prayer should precede real joy.”

“What is joy? Joy is laughter, full of glory, full of praise, its happiness, a state of mind, a state of being, it’s all that good stuff that causes us to enjoy the days God has given us to live upon this earth. This is the day the Lord has made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

“The cost of real joy is time spent in prayer. Jesus said up to this point, you have not ask anything of me. But you ask the father in my name and he will give it to you, so your joy may be full.”

“Let me ask you something, are you joyful today? The sound of real joy is also heard in the sound of singing. Sing and make a joyful noise unto the Lord.”

“So, I strongly encourage you to today, if your mind is depressed, if your heart is heavy, if your situation seems unbearable…then it’s time for you to pay the price, so that you’re on the receiving end of real joy.”

“What’s the price?…time in prayer, a good attitude, casting all your care upon him, not worrying about anything…knowing God has already fixed everything. Pay the price, so your joy can be full and make that sound…it’s a joyful noise unto the Lord.”

“Trust you have a great day today and don’t forget to vote.”

“We’ll see you in church Sunday.”
