Yesterday, I was reading some stuff about joy and having joy and was directed to this part of the Christ’s prayer. This is a section of one of his recorded prayers where he prays for us. Read closely what he says.
“Father, I want these people that you gave me to be with me where I am. I want them to see my glory, which you gave me because you loved me before the world was made. (John 17:24 NCV)
The Son of God prayed that he wanted you in Heaven with him. Hmmm. That’s a source of Joy that transcend lots of troubles and triumphs!
