Happy Easter, everyone!
What joy is ours, since we are Christians and have a God who would have His Son endure the pangs of death and the sin of the entire world, and then rise that we might rise with Him!
Many people talk (and have written) about how we ought not to put our joy in man or in material things. This is easy to see why, and yet we forget it often, and either trust and rely upon people or things we love to make us happy and joyful. But we would not have either without God! Our joy comes from Him and Him alone. Because Christ endured the cross and Sheol, we need not fear ever losing our joy. In Him we have risen and shall be resurrected!
