These things I have spoken to you, that My
joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full. —John 15:11
While waiting in the gate area of Singapore’s Changi Airport to
board my flight, I noticed a young family—mom, dad, and son. The
area was crowded, and they were looking for a place to sit.
Suddenly, the little boy began loudly singing “Joy to the World.” He
was about 6 years old, so I was pretty impressed that he knew all
What captured my attention even more was the look on the boy’s
face—his beaming smile matched the words he was singing as he
proclaimed to everyone at the gate the joy of the Christ who has
This joy is not limited to exuberant children nor should it be
confined to the Christmas season. The overflowing joy of knowing
Christ’s presence in our lives was one of the themes of Jesus’ final
teaching with His disciples the night before He died on the cross.
He told them of His extravagant love for them—that He loved them as
the Father loved Him (John 15:9). After sharing what this eternal
relationship looks like, Jesus said, “These things I have spoken to
you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full”
What a promise! Through Jesus Christ our hearts can be filled with
Lord, You have chosen me and redeemed me, crowned me with love
and compassion. I can do nothing less than overflow with joy at Your
great love for me, for those I love, and for the world.
In every season of life we can know joy in Christ.
INSIGHT: Jesus often spoke in picturesque language to help people
understand what He was saying. In today’s passage, He explains the
relationship between Himself and His followers by talking about a
vine. The key word in this passage is “abide,” which is used 10
times. We stay connected to (abide in) Him (the vine) by the power
of the Holy Spirit, through the reading of His Word, and through
prayer. In this way (the branches) remain in fellowship with Him and
know true joy.

"And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for
yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods
which your fathers served that were on the other side of the
River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell.
But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord."
