Joy

"And now I am coming to You,

I say these things while I am still in the world,

so that My joy may be made full

and complete and perfect

in them - that they may experience

My delight fulfilled in them

that My enjoyment may be perfected

in their own souls,

that they may have My gladness

within them filling their hearts." (Underline added)   

John 17:13 Amplified Bible

 

 

 

 

 

Do you realize that the words

them, they, and their

refer to you? 

 

Did you know Jesus' prayer,

recorded in John 17,

is what Jesus prays for you?

 

The Lord Jesus delights in perfecting

His joy in His children,

so you will be able to enjoy

the abundant life

He provides without your being anxious or afraid.

 

Jesus refers to His joy

because it is obtained only from Him.

He is the Author and the Cause of joy.

"These things I have spoken to you

so that My joy may be in you,

and that your joy may be made full."

(John 15:11)

 

Trying to live apart from the treasures of God, spoken in His entire Word, sooner or later leads to  unhappiness. 

 

 

Your joy can

ONLY

be made full

when you delight in the same things

Jesus delights in;

when you worship Him;

when you love

and revere His Word;

submit to His will;

repent of your sins;

and continue to faithfully carry out the daily tasks He has given you to do.
