24TH APRIL – “LET YOUR SPIRIT REJOICE IN JESUS”

 

“In that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit” – Luke 10: V21

 

Beloved, of all the human race, there was never a man who had a deeper, purer, or more abiding peace than our Lord Jesus Christ. “He was anointed with the oil of gladness above His fellows.” Our Saviour was “a man of sorrows,” but every thoughtful mind has discovered the fact that down deep in His innermost soul He carried an inexhaustible treasury of refined and heavenly joy. There were a few remarkable seasons when this joy manifested itself. “At that hour Jesus rejoiced in spirit, and said, I thank thee, O Father, Lord of heaven and earth.” Christ had His songs, though it was night with Him; though His face was marred, and His countenance had lost the lustre of earthly happiness, yet sometimes it was lit up with a matchless splendour of unparalleled satisfaction, as He thought upon the recompense of the reward and sang His praises unto God.
The Lord Jesus is a blessed picture of His church on earth. The church is expected to walk in sympathy with our Lord Jesus, along a thorny road; through much tribulation, forcing the way to the crown. There are stores of wine, and oil, and corn, hidden in Heaven, upon which the saints of God are evermore sustained and nurtured; and sometimes, as in our Saviour’scase, we have our seasons of intense delight, for “There is a river, the streams whereof shall make glad the city of our God.” Exiles though we be, we rejoice in our King; yea, in Him we exceedingly rejoice, while in His name we set up our banners—”Jehovah Nissi, the Lord is my Banner”. Amen!
JESUS LOVES YOU. Start your day with Jesus.
Beloved, have a blessed day.

  3. I do like the way you have framed this particular difficulty plus it does indeed present me personally some fodder for consideration. On the other hand, from what I have experienced, I simply hope when other comments pile on that people today keep on point and in no way get started on a soap box regarding the news of the day. Anyway, thank you for this exceptional point and even though I do not really concur with it in totality, I respect the standpoint.
