A Permanent Joy

Text: Luke 10:17-24
Dr. Peter Green

Are we characterized by joy in our lives? An honest answer is likely to be that we are at times, but not always. That’s because we often seek joy in something transient and impermanent. In reality, we can only find lasting joy in permanent good news, in the gospel. In today’s text, Jesus exhorts us to rejoice not in our transient success or power but rather in what really matters which is our guaranteed position in Christ that we receive freely by grace as the Holy Spirit applies it to our hearts.
