WORD FOCUS: THAT YOUR JOY MAY BE FULL
TEXT: John 15:9-11 “As the Father hath loved me, so have I loved you: continue ye in my love.
If ye keep my commandments, ye shall abide in my love; even as I have kept my Father’s commandments, and abide in his love. These things have I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full..”
Is your joy full today? When something is full, there really isn’t room for any more. It’s a feeling of complete satisfaction. God wants your joy to be full! But too many people drag through the day with a sour outlook, no enthusiasm. They hardly ever smile. They never laugh anymore. Everything is a burden. But God never created us to endure life; He created us to enjoy life. We’re not supposed to go around with a long face, negative, discouraged, sour and grumpy.
As believers, you and I are supposed to be the happiest people on earth. Everywhere we go, we should be so full of joy that we brighten other people’s day. Here’s the key: we have to choose love by choosing to obey the commands of Almighty God. That’s how our joy is full and complete. If there’s an area of your life that you know needs some adjustments in order to be in obedience to His Word, do it today. Don’t waste another moment disconnected from the Father.
Instead, choose to obey and choose love that your joy may be full!
