True joy is God. It is the relationship between God the Son, God the Father, and God the Holy Ghost. This relationship in the Godhead is God’s gift to us. It is the gift of joy and it is for all mankind. Salvation is joy.
Isaiah the prophet of the Lord writes, "Behold, God is my salvation, I will trust and not be afraid. For the Lord God is my strength and song. And He has become my salvation. Therefore you will joyously draw water from the springs of salvation. Isaiah 12 2:3
Jesus has joy. Jesus has God. Jesus wants to give us God and the relationship that He has with God the Father and God the Holy Ghost.
Jesus says, “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may be in you, and that your joy may be made full.” John 15:11
“Until now you have asked for nothing in My name; ask and you will receive, that your joy may be made full.” John 16:24
“But now I come to Thee and these things I speak in the world, that they may have My joy made full in themselves.”
God wants to give us all a gift. He wants to give us all Himself. He wants to share with us the relationship that exists from all eternity with the three parts of the Trinity. God wants to give us Joy!
Be careful. True Christianity is joy. False Christianity is death. True Christianity can be in any denomination as it dependant on the individuals relationship with God, not the church. False Christianity is in all churches as well, as again it is based on the individuals response to God, not the church itself.
In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness and the darkness did not comprehend it. John 1 4:5.
Don’t resist God’s JOY for you!!!
