[Jesus said,] “I will see you again and your
heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.” —John
I asked several friends what their most difficult, painful
experience in life had been. Their answers included war, divorce,
surgery, and the loss of a loved one. My wife’s reply was, “The
birth of our first child.” It was a long and difficult labor in a
lonely army hospital. But looking back, she said she considers it
joyful “because the pain had a big purpose.”
Just before Jesus went to the cross, He told His followers they were
about to go through a time of great pain and sorrow. The Lord
compared their coming experience to that of a woman during
childbirth when her anguish turns to joy after her child is born
(John 16:20-21). “Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you
again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take
from you” (v.22).
Sorrow comes to us all along the road of life. But Jesus, “who for
the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the
shame” (Heb. 12:2), purchased forgiveness and freedom for all who
open their hearts to Him. His painful sacrifice accomplished God’s
eternal purpose of opening the way to friendship and fellowship with
The joy of our Savior outweighed His suffering, just as the joy He
gives us overshadows all our pain.
Dear Father, Your precious Son Jesus chose suffering for me.
Thank You for His sacrifice on my behalf. Thank You that even my
pain can be a tool in Your hands to make me more like Your Son.
Suffering can be like a magnet that draws the Christian
close to Christ.
INSIGHT: John 16 concludes Jesus’ most extended teaching session
recorded in the gospel of John (Chs. 13–16). Jesus had begun the
evening by washing the disciples’ feet in a remarkable act of
servitude (13:1-17). After this He would go to Gethsemane and,
ultimately, to Calvary. There He would make the ultimate sacrifice
as He died on the cross for the sins of humanity.

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
