“But about the Son he says, ‘You have loved righteousness and hated wickedness; therefore God, your God, has set you above your companions by anointing you with the oil of joy.’”

‭‭Hebrews‬ ‭1:8a, 9‬ ‭NIV‬‬

Driving down the highway in the summer I’m often putting down my visor to block the sun’s blinding rays from my eyes. Reading the Bible can be much the same way, leaving a person to feel as if someone is shining a spotlight on them and their sin. While you and I have a hard time looking at brightness, God cannot look upon the darkness of our hearts and lives. His Word is truth exposes our sin for the darkness it is so that Christ can purify us from the wickedness. Through this process of sanctification we grow to be more like Christ, desiring more to please God than to continue in sin. That’s where the joy comes from!🚦
