What is joy? Is it not peace and love combined? And yet the joy of Jesus which He offers us is all this and much more. True joy that yearns for nothing, wants nothing, lacks nothing.

Keeping His Word close to our hearts, keeping His commandments and living according to His Word we remain in His love.
How blessed we are to have such a loving God! Praise and Glory be to the Father and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit. Amen

GOSPEL John 15:9–11

Jesus said to his disciples:“As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. “I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete.”
