Joy that will never be able to be fully explained in human terms comes from an ever deepening understanding that All my needs for Complete Righteousness have been met by The One Who created All, controls All, Is Love and Loves me beyond Any possible shred of human common sense with an Eternal, Relentless Love that is beyond explanation or reason!
The battle with the flesh here and now is not with my “doing” but with my momentary forgetfulness that puts that Joy out of my human reach because I slip into basing my Hope, Joy and Peace on something I can see, feel, taste or hear through human senses rather than acceptance of the FaithFull Truth of what I can’t see which is, GOD RADICALLY LOVES ME JUST AS I AM!
To maintain, grow and develop True Joy in us and others – we Must Focus on His Love for us! As we remain focused on His Love for us His Love, Joy, Peace and Grace for All Flow through us – And this Is True Joy!
“As the Father has loved me, so have I loved you. Now remain in my love. If you keep my commands, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commands and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy may be in you and that your joy may be complete. My command is this: Love each other as I have loved you.” – John 15:9-12
To “remain in my Love” is Not saying we could lose His Love, But instead it’s saying that we could lose focus on His Love by focusing on law or other things for righteousness!
