An even greater joy.
When I ask atheists to describe what makes them joyful, they often say living life to the fullest or experiencing new places, people, and things like luxury cars, boats, and other toys for grown-ups. Some say their greatest joy is having children and grandchildren, which I can certainly understand.
I bask in the happiness of life with my wife and my children, but true joy is knowing that my children are God’s children too, and He will always look after them. An even greater joy each day for me is knowing that I’m closer to going home to be with Jesus, and that I will never die. Until then, I am His ambassador surrounded by angels and filled with His Holy Spirit.
