Rejoicing in the Lord The children of God are called to be representatives of Christ, showing forth the goodness and mercy of the Lord. As Jesus has revealed to us the true character of the Father, so we are to reveal Christ to a world that does not know his tender, pitying love. "As thou hast sent me into the world," said Jesus, "even so have I also sent them into the world." "I in them, and thou in me, . . . that the world may know that thou hast sent me."
