Jesus is a beauty to behold. He is pleasure to the eyes and joy to the soul. He is an eternal gift that the Father gave to us that our joy may be complete. Jesus is himself the fulfillment of the biblical command to rejoice in the Lord, always. Never-ending, eternal, forever, always. He is the joy– our joy– that never ends.
We enjoy God for Himself. We enjoy him for his “I am’s” and His “I will’s”. He is so willing to give us Himself, and He already did through Jesus Christ. I agree with John Piper that God’s desire is for us to be satisfied by him and enjoy him forever.
God is indeed most glorified in us when we are most satisfied in him. If Jesus promises to be with us all the days of our lives, then there is more than enough reason to rejoice in the Lord always.
“Gladden the soul of your servant, for to you, O Lord, do I lift up my soul.” (Psalm 86:4)
We sometimes foolishly just seek happiness. But thank you Jesus for tirelessly restoring our joy. We are complete because of you. We love you Jesus.
