We normally experience joy whenever we get what we desire such as a good paying job, a college graduation, first prize in a contest, a marriage proposal from a loved one, or a feeling of being forgiven from some sins we committed.

How about “joy unspeakable and full of glory”? Have you ever experienced it?

The Bible said such joy is loving Somebody that you have not seen but you believe in Him. Therefore, without faith, you cannot have this special kind of joy for the object of this joy is Jesus Christ, Lord and Savior.

Again I speak as a Christian and I do not intend to impose my beliefs to my readers. I just want to share them with you. Take it or leave it.

You found yourself lost in a maze and doomed to fall in a bottomless pit. You call for help. Then here is this unseen Friend who came to your rescue and led you to your destination safe and sound. This Friend loves you truly and He expects you to love Him too. And then you begin to love this Friend and so the beginning of joy starts. Yet you cannot express it because it is glorified or celestial. This Friend is Jesus.

Being redeemed from the debt of sin caused by man’s disobedience to God Almighty and set free from the grasp of eternal death is indeed “joy unspeakable and full of glory.”

The Gift of Salvation is offered to whosoever will believe that Jesus Christ is Lord and Savior at no price or suffering required. He already paid it all at the Cross of Calvary.

I just cannot express the joy I feel every time I sing or listen to the church hymn, “How Great Thou Art.” This kind of joy is unspeakable and full of glory.
