Joy & Happiness

Matthew 25:21 (NKJV)
His lord said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful
servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will 
make you ruler over many things. Enter into the 
joy of your lord.’

Song Of The Day

Bible Commentary

Matthew 25:21 is a popular Bible verse where Jesus is showing us the end result of what happens to His faithful servants.

This Bible verse is rich with rewards and peace to the ears of those who have struggled, endured trials and persecution, and yet faithfully walked with Jesus Christ. For those of us who follow Christ, these words are the ultimate reward from God the Father, for it means we (and our work) are accepted by Him.


Not only are we accepted by the Father, but we have the privilege of entering into His joy. There is a reason this is significant.

While here on earth in our physical bodies, the only thing that connects us to God the Father is Jesus Christ by the Holy Spirit, our lifeline. That golden thread runs through all we are and all we do, but outside the Lifeline of the Holy Spirit is everything else--the rest of the world.

“Everything else” consists of these things:

·         What’s left of the curse upon man and earth

·         Spiritual authorities in wicked places

·         The anger and wrath of God, which supersedes both of these

1 Corinthians 13:13 says, “And now abide faith, hope, love, these three; but the greatest of these is love.” God is love.

So we know love is far greater than we can fully grasp or comprehend. We know it’s there, but we don’t always feel His great love because it gets drowned out by the noise of the three things listed above.

Unlocking the Truth - Come Running

But what about God’s other emotions? We know He is love, but He also knows the full range of emotions we know—sadness, sorrow, joy, happiness and anger. He is an all-powerful God, and so His other emotions like anger, are more fierce and intense than we can imagine. If it weren’t for His love being greater than His wrath, we would have seen the destruction of the human race long ago.


But the rainbow reminds us that His mercy is greater than His anger, and that He will not flood the earth again like He did in Noah’s days. We are protected under the merciful covering of the cross. Though we are followers of Jesus Christ, we live in the aftermath of God’s curse--the result of His sorrow and anger because of sin, which allowed the entry of the devil’s authority and dominion upon the earth. 

So when He says to us in Matthew 25:21, “Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things, I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord,” it is cause for great relief from the fierceness of God's disappointment, as we enter into a great celebration of God's merciful love.


To enter into the joy of the Lord is to be rescued from all the effects of His curse and wrath upon the earth. It means we are removed from all the influence of evil, the devil's dominion and authority.

When we enter into God’s joy, we no longer hear the noise of God’s anger or the voice of evil in our ears. Instead we hear the sounds of the Lord's grace, mercy and peace. We enter into His rest. Hallelujah!

Hebrews 4:3 says, “For we who have believed do enter that rest…”

We know a peace beyond our understanding when we are gathered and covered under the safety of God’s rest from the noise of the world. Like two long lost lovers running toward one another, God reaches out to us as we, His bride, come running into Him. 


Study the Bible verse of Matthew 25:21 and know the welcoming peace and joy of God through Jesus Christ our Savior.
