"Rejoice evermore!" 1 Thessalonians 5:16
You have good reason to rejoice, dear reader—if Christ is yours, and you are His. For in Him you are blessed with all spiritual blessings; and with Him you will share the joy and glory of the eternal inheritance!
Your pathway here on earth may be one of difficulty and trial—yes, you may at times be called to drink deeply of the cup of sorrow. Still have you good reason to rejoice in your present possession and in your future prospects.
To assist your joy, dwell less on your trials—and more on your mercies . Think what you are saved from:
the curse of the law,
the burden of guilt,
the darkness of nature,
the bondage of Satan,
the dominion of sin, and
the eternal prison of Hell!
Think what you are in possession of:
the love of God,
the spirit of adoption,
a title to Heaven,
and a fitness for it.
Think what you are traveling to:
your Father's house,
your Savior's presence,
the society of just men made perfect,
fullness of joy, and
pleasures for evermore!
Back to Every Day!
