His Joy Greater Than Ours

The church will have her joy in Christ, but Christ will have His greater joy in the church. The strongest pulse of gladness that is to beat for eternity will be in the bosom of the Lord over His ransomed bride. In all things He is to have the preeminence, and, as in all things, so in this, His joy in her will be greater than hers in Him.
