There. There's the joy. A result of hope and peace. Not always easy to have, but more difficult to lose because when you have it, it seeps into you. It runs deep. It can wane and even be depleted entirely, but it's not easily done because while it's easy to lose hope or peace, it's hard and devastating to lose both at once.

As I mentioned last week, the Israelites were looking for a savior. They were looking for a king who would ride in and rescue them from the Romans and all their other problems. They never got what they were looking for in a physical, earthly manifestation. Jesus wasn’t a government gladiator or born in a palace or a battle-tested warrior or even a soldier. But He was the Savior everyone needed and none deserved.
