Inexpressible Joy

You have not seen Christ, but still you love him. You cannot see him now, but you believe in him. So you are filled with a joy that cannot be explained, a joy full of glory. (1 Peter 1:8 NCV)
Children of God have a reason to smile being filled with the Holy Spirit and joy in the assurance that they will spend eternity in the presence of King Jesus. The Bible says that in the presence of God there is fullness of joy (Psalm 16:11) and that the joy of the Lord is our strength. (Nehemiah 8:10) This overflowing joy is powerful enough to break down all socioeconomic, racial or interpersonal barriers to unify all worldwide believers that we may be one as King Jesus so desires for His Church.
