My Joy . . . Your Joy

My Utmost His Highest

"These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full." (John 15:11)

What was the joy that Jesus had? . . . The joy of Jesus was His absolute self-surrender and self-sacrifice to His Father — the joy of doing that which the Father sent Him to do — “. . . who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross . . .” (Hebrews 12:2). “I delight to do Your will, O my God . . .” (Psalm 40:8). Jesus prayed that our joy might continue fulfilling itself until it becomes the same joy as His. Have I allowed Jesus Christ to introduce His joy to me?
