Aug 15, 2022 – GOZO - JOY

Being bilingual has a lot of advantages. One of the best ones is being able to interpret the Bible or a sermon from two different perspectives. On Sunday, I went to a Spanish church. The service and the sermon are in Spanish. The message was about GOZO. Gozo translated into English is JOY. I fully enjoyed the message. It answered a lot of questions I had about bitterness and anger. The sermon basically said that a lack of “GOZO” was the first sign of someone distancing from God. If I cannot feel this inexplicable sense of JOY, no matter the circumstances it was probably time to evaluate my relationship with God. Have I pushed Him away? Have I spent any time with Him lately?
