Because of our faith in Christ’s completed work on the cross, we can be assured that we have received and will continue to receive His divine mercy. But that doesn’t give us license to sin (Romans 6:1-2). Rather, it should produce gratitude along with deeper love for God and a passion for holiness.
Commentary from the In Touch devotional by Charles Stanley, July 20, 2022.
Joy is appropriate at all times. Praying without ceasing does not mean pray repetitiously or continuously without a break, but rather pray persistently and regularly. Thanklessness is a trait of unbelievers.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for 1 Thessalonians 5:16-18.
This psalm expresses the exuberance of the psalmist as he recognizes that God is merciful in salvation, great in His works of creation, just in His dealings with the wicked, and faithful in prospering His children.
Commentary from the MacArthur study Bible, notes for Psalm 92:1-15.
