Joy

John 15:11 (ESV)

11 These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.

In the verses before this Jesus gave his disciples information about the Father and his relationship and the relationship he wants with us. The reason Jesus was telling them is so that his joy would be in them and that their joy would be full.

If we take note of what Jesus said about living in Him and bearing fruit our joy will be in Him. Our joy will be in Him to the extent it will be full. Joy is not an emotion or feeling like being happy, joy comes from within and no circumstance can take our joy unless we let it. Joy is a fruit of the spirit and is just as important as the rest of the fruit. Joy will carry us through whatever is happening in our life.

Let your joy bubble up inside you.

Your loving sister Amanda
