This is the Day #3. “Let us rejoice and be glad in it.”

The way that some talk, you would think that there is a small group of men who own and rule everything on earth. It might make an exciting tale to believe that we need to protect life and liberty against a network of underlings controlled by a few billionaire megalomaniacs, but, whoever they might be, they would have to deal with King Jesus first.

Don’t get me wrong, there have been plenty of tyrants who have inflicted misery upon the masses. Some killing tens of millions within and without their borders. We weep to think that the innocent are harmed most by those they look to for peace and prosperity.

God allows man freedom of choice. But tragically, some have chosen to harm rather than bless. Therefore, we are inspired all the more to assure that our faith is in God, not man.

Thus, we must work to improve the lives of those suffering under the rule of man. But as we go, we must take the joy of the Lord with us. Our message is a message of hope; hope in a Saviour who saves the faithful and brings the evil to justice. The Gospel can open the eyes of a heart of those who seek God to see His providence in all things.

We rejoice knowing that “Every good and perfect gift is from above” (James 1:17), and “that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him” (Romans 8:28).

We have much to rejoice and be glad over. To let Satan and his human helpers to immiserate our lives is to rob ourselves and the lost of the Joy of the Lord.

God knows what he is doing. He made everything and sees everything. Praise the Lord!

“The earth is the Lord’s, and all it contains,

The world, and those who dwell in it” (Psalm 24:1).

This is the day that the Lord hath made, let us rejoice and be glad in it.

John Staiger
