Webb: joy

Monday, February 17, 2020
    Feast of Janani Luwum, Archbishop of Uganda, Martyr, 1977
    Be joyful always.
    —1 Thessalonians 5:16 (NIV)
    Joy is not gush: joy is not jolliness. Joy is simply perfect acquiescence in God’s will, because the soul delights itself in God Himself... Rejoice in the will of God, and in nothing else. Bow down your heads and your hearts before God, and let the will, the blessed will of God, be done.
    ... Hanmer William Webb-Peploe (1837-1923), included in Springs in the Valley, ed. Mrs. Charles E. Cowman, Grand Rapids: Zondervan, 1997, p. 163 (see the book)
    See also 1 Thess. 5:16; Neh. 8:10-12; Nah. 1:15; Acts 2:45-47; 2 Cor. 1:24; 8:2; Phil. 4:4
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, let Your will in my life be my joy.
