Gospel Notes: Divine Love, Our Joy

How does a man find joy in life when the pleasures of the world fade or are proven to be unfulfilling?

The love of God in Christ is not in word only; it is love that reaches from everlasting to everlasting, love shewn in choosing, and in glorifying us. In all the miseries of the world, one beam of this loving kindness of the Lord will scatter all, and fill my heart with joy. - Richard Sibbes, Divine Meditations and Holy Contemplations, #24
