The Secret To Joy

Preacher Rev Lourens Nel
28. Aug. 2022

We read about joy in our passage that is complete! The words in our text verse, verse 11, were spoken by our Lord Jesus Christ, and we need to notice when He said them. It was an extraordinary time to talk of joy and gladness, for in a little while, He would be in Gethsemane, and shortly after that, He would be facing His accusers and hearing the scoffs and mocking voices of those who hated Him. How unique the Lord’s joy must have been if it still abided with Him in the time of great trial and testing on the cross! – and His desire and provision for us is that His joy, which is so different from that of the world, should be our joy – “…that my joy might be in you and that your joy may be complete.”
