The Requirement: Rejoice The Reasons: God rescued his Bride The Result: God himself rejoices
Judah would be able to rejoice in her restoration. God would remove her shame, live with her, and help her multiply. This would cause her joy. And as she would then live obediently and begin to multiply, God would then rejoice over her, so much so that he would start to sing!
Brothers and Sisters in Jesus Christ: 1. Rejoice over the church's rescue when she falls into sin for the Lord doesn't leave her in her sins. He rescues her. He stays with her. He reassures her of his love. The disaster goes away!
2. How would you rejoice? Sing! Sing well. Sing often. Sing truth. Yes, sing them over again to me, wonderful words of life and liberty! Sing, shout, be glad, rejoice!
3. Tell others of the joy of being a child of God! The truth is, many are depressed. They feel like life isn't worth it. They have tried to live away from God but have become disappointed. They take pills to fake happiness. They need to know that they can be fulfilled and have true joy in Jesus. They need to know their sins can be forgiven. And you have that message! Don't hide it.
Finally: If you have guilt and shame because of your sins, ask God to remove your guilt and shame by forgiving your sins. Tell him Jesus died for your sins. What joy awaits you if you simply do this in sincerity!
