Weather: Mid 40s and Clear
Devo:Jesus knew his disciples would grieve when he left them. But he assured them that their grief would not last. In fact, their grief would turn to joy because there would be a reunion. Their friend, teacher, and brother would be among them once again—talking, eating, and teaching. And great joy would overwhelm them.
We can say more about the joy Jesus promised. It is for us as well. We too wait for Jesus to return. And although we will continue to face situations and losses that will cause us grief, we do not grieve without hope. Our hope is in Christ Jesus and the saving work he finished for us. In believing and receiving the forgiveness and new life Jesus has won for us, one day our joy will be complete. A family reunion like no other awaits us. Let’s rejoice and be glad!
