The Ground of Our Joy



"... it is evident what Christ brings to us, namely, a full and perfect joy, of which we cannot in any way be robbed or deprived, though various storms and tempests should arise, and though we should be weighed down by every kind of afflictions. However weak and feeble we may be, still we ought to be glad and joyful; for the ground of our joy does not lie in numbers, or wealth, or outward splendour, but in spiritual happiness, which we obtain through the word of Christ." - Calvin on Isaiah 9:3.
