Today’s reading: John 16:20
Sorrow turned to joy
We read in John 16:20:
20 Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy.
It’s quite interesting to note that our life as Yahshua-followers is not free of pain and suffering. Instead, if you read John 16, these things are expected.
Notice, Yahshua said that God will not prevent you from experiencing sorrow, but instead, He will TURN your sorrow to joy.
The disciples were about to go through their biggest trial in life. In just a few hours from now, they will witness their Master get arrested. They will go into hiding. They will know that Yahshua went through the most gruesome death known to man.
They were sorrowful because it seemed that all hope was gone. It seems evil was victorious. It seems all the things they worked hard and fought for came to nothing.
Yes, all hope was gone until the stone was rolled. Once Yahshua was resurrected from the dead, everything changed. Their sorrow turned to joy.
I hope we all realize how beautiful life is. While it is riddled with pain and suffering, it is also riddled with joy and love because of God’s grace and love toward us.
Whatever sorrow you are experiencing right now, bring it to Yahweh. After all, He is your Father who deeply loves you. He will surely help you turn that sorrow into joy.
