LOVE | Joy
“As the Father has loved me, so I (Jesus) loved you. Abide in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will abide in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and abide in his love. These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.” John 15:9-11
These verses hold such a powerful message. Jesus, the son of God, LOVES us just as the Father, God, loves him. That is an amount of love we will never understand here on Earth. Jesus’ love is unconditional. Nothing we do will ever make him stop loving us. It’s true. However, we will not experience his JOY unless we abide in his love. We have to participate!
“For God so loved the world, that he gave his one and only son, that whoever should believe in him will not perish, but have everlasting life.” John 3:16
Jesus died so we can have a relationship with him – so we can participate in his love. He loves us, and wants us to ABIDE in that love:
to accept it
to let it fill us up with hope & joy
to let the truth of his word set parameters for us to continue abiding
and to share it!
The love of God is not for us to keep, but to share with others. Now, more than ever, we must share. Share TRUE LOVE. Share TRUE JOY. Share JESUS.
