Jumping for joy

I tell you the truth, you will ask the Father directly, and he will grant your request because you use my name. You haven’t done this before. Ask, using my name, and you will receive, and you will have abundant joy. John 16:23-24

Ever been greeted at the door by a leaping, delighted dog? What a display of unbridled joy! Nobody exists for him except you and you are the best things he’s ever seen. Jesus came so our Dad could become our Dad. He came so that we can always respond to our Father with leaping, yelping delight instead of fear or shame.

The Lord is Here! Yes!
