Do you know that Christ is happy in his exalted state in heaven?
Every day, if that is how time is measured in heaven, he looks around and sees the results of his death on the cross for his people.
First, he sees the conversion and the salvation of sinners.
Second, he looks over the amazing expanse of heaven and sees it populated with the people he died and shed his blood for.
Third, he looks down on our world and sees so many coming into faith, taking baby steps in grace, others advancing in their faith, and still others strong as warriors in their faith, and this brings pleasure to his soul.
Fourth, he sees those arriving in heaven, having finished the race, and he rejoices!
Jesus is fully satisfied with his own sacrifice!
And if he’s satisfied, so is God the Father, and the Holy Spirit.
They rejoice together!
There is joy in heaven over you!
