Quotemeal: Dec. 8th, 2020

Tuesday, December 8, 2020

"The Bible talks plentifully about joy, but it nowhere talks about a "happy Christian." Happiness depends on what happens; joy does not. Remember, Jesus Christ had joy, and He prays "that they might have my joy fulfilled in themselves.""
— Oswald Chambers
