You see, my friends, there is in God a deep, abiding, essential joyousness.......and so, when we are rejoicing in that which rejoices Him, we may be truly said to share in the Divivne attributes of the Lord.
Why do our hearts bound on spring mornings with the joy of nature? Why does the beauty of the summer evening calm us? Why do we feel a glory and a joy as we tread the mountain-sides? Why do we feel a deepening peace as we walk amid the splendours of the golden autumn? Is it not because we realize the presence of a spirit of beauty surrounding us, and inspiring us with an emotion which no words can describe? Or why is it that when a truth breaks in upon us through clouds of doubt, and a clear vision of its beauty is gained after long and fruitless searching, we feel a thrill of joy deep and unspeakable? Have we not, after communion with a fellow believer, felt our own darkness dissipated, and our own isolation broken down? In that hour has not the touch of the Spirit made us feel stronger, wiser? And if this is true of earthly communion, must it not be supremely true when we walk in the fellowship of the Living God as our Heavenly Father?
