“Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy,” 1 Peter 1:8 (NIV)
If we take the time to think about it we realize, especially from today’s verse how much we have because of what Jesus Christ has done for us. The Apostle Peter, who wrote this letter to Christians, had spent almost every day for three years with Jesus. As the gospel was carried and spread through the world, many believed in Jesus who had not seen Jesus as the disciples had. This is true for us today. We who have not seen Him have come to believe in Him. And the result is that we are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy. This is a true joy that is difficult to describe and it is ours. What a wonderful Savior we have. What a wonderful joy is ours when we believe in Him.
