God's Joy

“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in His love. I have told you this so that My joy may be in you and your joy may be complete.” – John 15:11

God’s joy.

Think about it.

What can extinguish it? What can douse it?  Traffic jams or bad moods or long lines or disappointments?


God’s joy is limitless and not dependent on circumstances. His joy springs from His eternal and unconditional goodness, righteousness and love.

And when we abide in that love, His joy is inside us, filling and satisfying our souls.

Abide in Him and obey His commands today, and find a steady fountain of peace that the ups and downs of our day-to-day routines cannot steal.

Have a blessed day! Don’t forget about MidWeek tonight as we continue our Secret Church series on “Marriage, Family, Sex, and the Gospel.” We’ll see you at 6:30 PM following the 5:30 PM MidWeek meal!
