Although the church marches on through suffering in this present world, she is already partaking of the blessing and fullness of true life that comes from Jesus. We will reach for that joy this Lord's Day, as we call on the heavens and the earth to join us in our jubilation.
Behold, this is our God;
We have waited for him, that he might save us.
This is the Lord;
We have waited for him;
Let us be glad and rejoice in his salvation! (Isaiah 25:9)
