(Jesus said) “So also you have sorrow now, but I will see you again, and your hearts will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.”
“…I will see you again…”
The promise of Jesus to His disciples. He was preparing them for His death, though they didn’t realize it just yet. Jesus needed to complete His mission to save His people. To calm His disciples’ hearts, he tells them that they would see Him again. And when they see their Lord again, they will rejoice. “And no one will take your joy from you,” Jesus tells them.
In this Advent season, we want our Lord Jesus to come again. It is something that all believers want because when He returns, this sinful, painful, ugly world will end and it will be replaced with a joyous place where there is no sin, no pain, no hurt. It will be a new earth filled with peace.
