Morning by Morning, April 14 - Complete Joy
Good morning, Lord Jesus. Speak to my heart, Good Shepherd of my soul, I pray. Help me begin this day embraced by my Father, centered in Christ, and filled with the Holy Spirit. ...
"I have said these things to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete" (John 15:11).
Complete joy is only in Jesus. No Jesus, no joy. Know Jesus, know joy.
Lord Jesus, You long for Your joy to be in us. So You speak to us and teach us and lead us into Your joy. And You express to us the interwoven, inseparable relationship between love, obedience, and joy: "My Father is glorified by this, that you bear much fruit and become My disciples. As the Father has loved Me, so I have 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. I have said these things to you so that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be complete. This is My commandments, that you love one another as I have loved you" (John 15:8-12).
A joyful life is a fruitful life -- a life that's fruitful through receiving and sharing the love of God through Jesus Christ. Lord, teach me how to love more deeply and how to embrace Your joy more fully. Increase my capacity for joy as You increase my capacity for love. In Jesus' name I pray. Amen.
Be encouraged today! In the Love of Jesus, Tommy Hays
