Verse of the Day (September 12, 2020)

Verse of the Day (September 12, 2020) #BMSeminary – The mention of believers’ names being recorded in heaven (v. 3) causes the author to write rejoice in the Lord alway. Harmony among church members, as Paul assumes will be the result of his plea in verses 2 and 3, is another reason to “rejoice.” In adding and again I say, Rejoice, it is as though the apostle looks into the future, considers all possibilities of sorrow, and in spite of them all repeats “the command.” This command to rejoice at all times and in all circumstances is nothing less than a call to faith. For if the Christian believes that his life and all its circumstances are in the hands of a sovereign, wise, and loving God who is always working to accomplish good for him, then he can indeed “rejoice always.” [KJV Study Bible, HarperCollins]
