Unspeakable Joy

In the third century Cyprian, the Bishop of Carthage, wrote to his friend Donatus, “It is a bad world, Donatus, an incredibly bad world. But I have discovered in the midst of it a quiet and holy people, who have learned a great secret. They have found a joy which is a thousand times better than any of the pleasures of our sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They are masters of their souls. They have overcome the world. These people, Donatus, are Christians . . . and I am one of them.” If you have repented of your sins and have received Christ as Savior, then you, too, are one of them.

Prayer for the day

Today, Lord God, I remember all those Christians who have gone before me and thank You for the inspiration of their memory. May I never take for granted the heritage I have in Christ Jesus.

    To God be the glory! I often remember the patience of my Christian friends from the days of my youth. I didn’t know what to believe; but they never gave up on me; as our Lord and Savior never gives up on us. Thank you Lord Jesus for sending those wonderful people my way.

    Once you’ve discovered the incredible joy that can only be found in a personal relationship with Jesus Christ, you will never want to lose it. There is nothing else to compare.
