What does it mean to rejoice greatly?
Jesus rejoiced. Jesus is exuberant in the Holy Spirit. Jesus came to usher in the Kingdom of God in the power of the Holy Spirit. Jesus died for us but approached it in great joy.
Jesus knew how the story would end. Jesus was happy about it all.
Jesus does the happy dance. Seriously! Jesus “rejoiced greatly”. Jesus is smiling. Jesus is stunned with what God is doing.
God is in a good mood. Jesus knew it. I believe that, do you?
