Let love be sincere;
hate what is evil,
hold on to what is good;
love one another with mutual affection;
anticipate one another in showing honor.
Do not grow slack in zeal,
be fervent in spirit,
serve the Lord.
Rejoice in hope,
endure in affliction,
persevere in prayer.
Contribute to the needs of the holy ones,
Bless those who persecute you,
bless and do not curse them.
Rejoice with those who rejoice,
weep with those who weep.
Have the same regard for one another;
do not be haughty but associate with the lowly;
do not be wise in your own estimation.
The best reason we have to rejoice is the fact that we have hope. I guess the question to ask is this, do we have hope? Hope that the pains and pressures of life are here to strengthen us to the Lord’s will for our lives. Hope of glory as we become more like the Savior. Hope that in the end all situations are for His glory.
Rejoice today as we hope for the glory of God to be revealed.
