Passing Pleasures or Abiding Joy
In contrast, the joy of Christ transcendentally abides, ever growing as we draw closer to Him. Circumstance matters less, pain draws us even nearer. With the utmost joy of being loved in unmerited grace we have true peace. We delight in our wonderful Lord, knowing a deeply satisfied contentedness which asks what more do we need? This present joy comes to the fullest fruition we could ever imagine when we meet Jesus in eternity.
I said to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good besides You.” Psalm 16:2.
Whom have I in heaven but You? And besides You, I desire nothing on earth.
My flesh and my heart may fail, But God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever. Psalm 73:25-26.
