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.
