John 15:11 "These things I have spoken to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full."
Thoughts of verse
This much-loved passage gives real insight into our position in Christ and reminds us that because we are united to Him by faith, we are to love one another as Christ loved us. We are also to abide in His love and trust His wise purpose for our lives.
Abiding in Christ produces love, joy, peace, patience, goodness, and faith. It's the power to rise above the storms of life.
The one who is prepared to give up the good for the very best will discover the inner joy of Jesus that is reserved for those that can say from their heart: the life that I now live in the flesh is not mine to live but Christ - Who lives in me.
Heavenly Father I pray that I may abide in You and You in me and that Your will for my life may be carried out to Your praise and glory. Thank You that the joy of the Lord is my strength. Help me to abide in You moment by moment and day by day so that I may be fruitful and bring much glory to You in Jesus name I pray, AMEN.
