Alistair Begg received this note from a conference attendee:
A friend was suffering through brain cancer and its treatments. His relationship with Jesus was such that the nurse wrote as a critical comment on his chart, ‘Mr. X is inappropriately joyful.” Since then it has become one of my goals to be inappropriately joyful.
Peter wrote of this type rare joy that characterizes people going through turbulent times:
“Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory,” (1 Peter 1:8, ESV)
How many really joyful Christians do you know? Are you one of them?
