Your Joy will be complete
Jesus said to His disciples “Whatever you ask the Father in My name he will give you. Until now you haven’t asked anything in my name; ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be complete”.
Have we asked Jesus for joy? We might have asked but, did we listen to Jesus as he speaks to us about a greater joy to desire? Worldly things may give us joy but only a temporary and incomplete one. In the gospel Jesus tells us that the Father himself loves us and the complete joy comes from his love.
Let us go deeper in our relationship and love with Jesus because only his love will complete our joy. Ask and listen to him. We are also invited to show to others the source of true joy. Share to others the love we experienced from Jesus and let their hearts be filled with complete joy!
