Sorrow into Joy

in Joy

Turn sorrow into joy, with today's Bible Minute from John 16.

Jesus says in John 16:20, "Truly, truly, I say to you, you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice. You will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will turn into joy."

Then he illustrates this in verse 21 saying, "When a woman is giving birth, she has sorrow because her hour has come, but when she has delivered the baby, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. 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."

Now that's something to look forward to! Jesus is coming and our sorrow will be turned to joy. Sorrow may continue throughout the night, but joy comes in the morning.
