“I am certain that the world outside is not going to take much notice of the organised efforts of the Christian church. The one thing she will pay attention to is a body of people filled with this Spirit of rejoicing. This is how Christianity conquered the ancient world.“
Dr D. Martin Lloyd Jones - Joy Unspeakable

"Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory" 1 Peter 1:8

this quote makes me think back on my own conversion... when I saw for the first time the gospel being lived out in the lives of those I once mocked. they cared... they loved... they were filled with joy that could not be denied... a joy in the midst of suffering. wow.

I'm grateful to God for how He used that joy in my friends lives to draw me so tenderly to Him.

thanks for this quote. it brought a renewed rejoicing to my soul this morning. :)
