Joy Unspeakable And Full Of Glory

“Joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

Really? In this broken down, fallen world of chaos and compromise? With all of the pain, suffering, and heartache? With all of the trials, temptations, and tests to pass? Who does God think we are? Who do we think we are? And, first of all, who do we think God is?

These are important questions.

Because things are going to get worse before they get better. This world is not improving morally or spiritually, regardless of what modern day prophets might try to tell you. The only panacea for this world’s ills is Jesus. The only comfort for our weary souls is Jesus.

And not just a “Yeah, sure, you’re absolutely right. Isn’t he wonderful?” type of acceptance of him. He is absolutely omnipotent, omnipresent, and omniscient. He is not to be trifled with. The battle field is littered with the casualties and prisoners of war of all the foolish men, women, and children who assume that our Savior is somehow no one to be taken seriously.

“Joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

This is for those who have been brought to their knees. For those who have bowed their spirits to the Holy One of Israel. This is for those who have forsaken all to serve the King of Kings. This is for true disciples, lovers of the good, followers of the way.

This is for obedient children, respectful wives, and loving husbands, for all those willing to take God at his word and just obey. This is for you, and this is for me!
