Today, we close out our series entitled, “For the Joy,” having focused on Jesus’ journey to the cross. And, it was because of the joy that was set before Him that He endured the cross, despising its shame, and now He is seated at the right hand of the Father interceding on our behalf.
Jesus’ resurrection reassures those of us who believe in Him of our own resurrection, and the fact that the grave does not have a hold on us either. We can sing for joy at the funerals of those who have died in Christ knowing that death is not the final answer, and that there is victory over death for the follower of Christ.
