Joy: part 2. Joy is the gigantic secret of the Christian. We are called to a life of joy and happiness. The Bible talks about eternal pleasures and everlasting happiness. We will all experience sorrow; but being a glum, miserable person is not the way Christians are meant to be.
If there was anyone in the Bible who had cause to be wrapped up in bitterness and unforgiveness, it was Joseph. But instead of holding onto the past he realised that all the turmoil and sufferings he experienced we’re being used by God to save his people.
Rachel was beautiful whereas Leah was overlooked, unloved and unwanted. But God saw Leah and gave her phenomenal blessing. The world praises the high-fliers and over-achievers, but God loves to use the weak for his Kingdom purposes.
