Question of the Day: Are we an imitation of Christ?

Question of the Day: Jesus is compassionate, faithful, loving and has freed us to be joyful. Are we all those things?

I know in my own life, I'd like to think I am many of those things, but I routinely forget amdist the trials of the day. We are free from our tribulations if we turn our lives over to Jesus - Christ has freed us to be joyful. That doesn't mean we won't have our struggles, but in joy, we know the promises he's made, and that the end will be glorious - now that's something to give thanks and praise for, isn't it?

How about you? What saps your joy?
