Wesley's Notes for 1 John 1:4


1:4 That your joy may be full - So our Lord also, #John 15:11|; #16:22|. There is a joy of hope, a joy of faith, and a joy of love. Here the joy of faith is directly intended. It is a concise expression. Your joy - That is, your faith and the joy arising from it: but it likewise implies the joy of hope and love.

    I believe if we have a real fellowship with God the father and Jesus, we would want to live righteous because we want to sin no more. So, our sinfull nature would make us continue to sin but we are forgiven of all past, present and future sins and we just have to have real repentance each time we sin. Our fellowhip with God will makevus hate to sin.
