Love Rejoices...

"It (Love) does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth" (1 Cor. 13:6, ESV). Last part says, "...rejoices with the truth."

Love is not only patient and kind... it "rejoices"! We also delight in the one we love.

Thus, when we are commanded to love God "... with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind," we ought also to rejoice or delight in Him with all our heart and with all our soul and with all our strength and with all our mind.

We read in Philippians 4:4, "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice." And in Psalm 37:4, "Delight yourself in the LORD..."

"Yet I will
rejoice in the LORD,
I will take joy
in the God of my salvation"
(Habakkuk 3:18, ESV).
