Full of JOY.

John 1511 “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. 12 This is My commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 Greater love has no one than this, than to lay down one’s life for his friends. 14 You are My friends if you do whatever I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, for a servant does not know what his master is doing; but I have called you friends, for all things that I heard from My Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you. 17 These things I command you, that you love one another.

Good Morning. In this turbulent world that we live in it is sometimes very difficult to be joyful. We have to remember as Christians that our joy comes from the Lord and not from the world, the world cannot take something away that it did not give! Jesus is the reason we have joy because as we show obedience to Jesus’ commandment of love. We find that joy will follow us and we will love others. The greatest love is for one to lay down his life for another as Jesus laid down His life for us! You and I are Christians because Jesus chose us, we did not choose Him, He chose us and placed us in a position to bring glory to God by bringing fruit to the Kingdom. This fruit can be the fruit of the Spirit in our lives ie; love, joy, peace, etc. or it can be leading someone to Jesus!   Notice in verse 17 loving one another is not a suggestion but a command! Seek His joy today!Love in Christ, Terry  May 3 2021
