1 Peter 1:8-9 Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls.
You love him, believe in Him and are with joy because of the salvation Jesus has promised. Without senses and experiences with Christ in the flesh, you so trust his promise of eternal life that you are full of joy. This joy comes as we remind each other of the prize of eternal life with him.
Encourage others after you have encouraged yourself in prayer and meditation. Think of the joy to come and the pain left behind. Remind others of that Great Promise: no more pain, no more sorrow, no more tears.
