Phil. 3:1

Tom Harding

Throughout the epistle to the believers at Philippi, Paul is always making reference to rejoicing in the Lord; "Rejoice in the Lord always and again I say rejoice" (Phil. 4:4). I can truthfully say there have been times in my life when I rejoiced in everything but the Lord, in religious service, office, ceremony, heritage. But there was a time when our God taught me the saving and the true gospel and convinced me that all was vanity and dung, and that Jesus Christ is All and in All, that every believer is complete in Christ (Col. 2:9). Once this was revealed to me, now I find that there are always abundant reasons to rejoice in Him no matter how difficult the day may be. Let me remind you of a few.

So, my good friend, if you are a believer, you always have reason to rejoice in the Lord!
