Thought of the Day January 31, 2018 Joy

By 9:43 AM

Lord, what gave you the greatest joy in your life on earth? I think it was your relationship with the Father. You identified this when at the age of twelve you stayed in the Temple. When asked why by your mother you simply replied, “Did you not know I must be about my Father’s business.” This joy was solidified when, after your baptism, you heard the Father say, “You are my beloved Son upon whom my favor rests.” Then the Spirit of gladness anointed you again. You expressed this joy in your relationship with the Father also when you told the Apostles that your food was to do the will of the Father. As you found your joy in relationship with the Father, so too will we. Nothing can fully satisfy us except to be one with you, doing your will in love.
