True disciples of Christ should be full of the joy of the Lord and filled with the Holy Spirit of God.
A true disciple will not kick against the clear biblical mandates but will embrace them as the gifts of love that they are.
Way too often the new believer is convinced by the prejudices of man, instilled by the spirit of anti-Christ, that the commands of Christ are optional or out dated. Nothing could be further from the truth.
The Word of Truth, the Bible, is the immutable, unalterable, eternal will of God. To ignore or alter any part of it is to stand against the Holy One of Israel. To do so is to the joy and power that only receiving the Gospel brings.
