Thought of the Day January 25, 2018 The joy of the Lord

By 11:08 AM

What is the joy of Jesus? Is it not his intimate relationship with
the Father and the Spirit in his humanity? The Father loved
the Son and expressed this love publicly. Jesus loved the
Father in turn and lived this love by choosing to do the will of
the Father in obedience even including death on the cross.
"My food is to do the will of my Father." The Spirit
overshadowed Mary for Jesus to be conceived and born. He
further anointed him with the power and gifts needed to fulfill
his mission. Jesus received, acknowledged and exercised
these gifts for the glory of God and the service of others.
