χαρά — chara
Take a day just to delight in the story so far. It warrants a pause in the tale, so much has happened.
We live in light of the glorious truth that we alienated ourselves from God by wilfully disobeying him. Sin is failing to do what God commands and we have all fallen painfully short of the standard. But God came to earth, bore our punishment, and reconciled us to himself.
Rejoice, dear Christian.
