These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full (John 15:11).
Joy is a way of thinking, behaving, relating to your friends and family. As LWML women we receive great joy by gathering together in Bible study. As I meet with my Bible study group each week, it brings me great joy to see my friends — knowing how we can support each other in prayer and sharing things that are going on in our lives. We dig into our Bible, have meaningful talks, and try to discern how Christ wants us to live. Christ wants His joy to be our joy and we are to share that with others. But the thing I value most about our LWML Bible study group is the joy that comes when we all join together in prayer. The joy that the Lord gives us to bring our needs and praises to Him is important.
Christ made it clear to His followers, He intended that His joy would become their joy. And this still holds true today. Christ wants us to share His joy with others.
Dear Lord, help me share joy in all the things that I do. In Jesus name. Amen.
