As we continue our study of John 17, verse 13 really stands out, “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.
Joy is the deepest sense of happiness that can only and fully come through Jesus.
The word for “joy” comes from the word charis which is the same word for “grace”…..I would like to suggest the full measure of joy comes when we realize how fully blessed and forgiven we are by grace. Believers without a deep sense of joy often do not understand the gift of grace. Churches where there is no joy are a contradiction, and the grace that is flowing is not realized. Jesus promised His followers a “full measure of joy.”
God Who is preparing you for what He has prepared for you wants to give you His full measure of joy.
It is important to understand that we can’t see the future that God is inviting us into if we don’t see it with joy.
