Secret of the Christian

"Joy, which was the small publicity of the pagan, is the gigantic secret of the Christian."
G. K. Chesterton

What do you think this quote means?

Ann Voskamp in her book on advent wrote that the gigantic gift that He gives and we unwrap, that we never stop unwrapping-we who were barren now graced with the Child who lets us laugh with relief for all eternity.  There is nothing left to want.  There is nothing left to fear:  "All fear is but the notion that God's love never ends." And His for you never will.  So loosen up, because the chains have been loosed, and laugh the laughter of the freed!  I had to share her beautiful words from "The Greatest Gift".

Isn't it true?

When we finally realize we are free because of God's love and His actions we have immense joy that only He provides.  He provides it all!  Joy only comes from Christ and with Christ!

I truly believe this beautiful quote because of my own journey.  Only with Christ do I understand what joy is...

Sweet blessings,

P.S.  If you haven't read Ann Voskamp's books give yourself a gift and purchase them!  She is truly an amazing writer!
