Every Day Is His Wedding-Day

Delight is the flowing of love and joy--the rest and complacence of the mind in a suitable, desirable good enjoyed. Now, Christ delights exceedingly in his saints: 'As the bridegroom rejoices over the bride, so shall your God rejoice over you' (Isa 62:5). . . . His heart is glad in us, without sorrow. And every day whilst we live is his wedding-day.

--John Owen, Communion with God (Mentor 2007), 192
