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.

If by this selfsame spirit enlighten us of the testamony of the Living God the Father; one will be lead in the way of righteousness, in the path of love and charity, POOR in SPIRIT. Who has a advocate with Christ.

    If we are with God, there is nothing to worry about. We have to walk with our God until the end so we will have the eternal life. God gave us his only begotten son to save us from sin and we have to be praise Him for all the things that He has made to us. Praise God!

    This scripture is saying that if we walk in the Light that we've fellow-ship with Christ, and continually walk with Him, we cannot be asking for forgiveness and continued to sin. 1Jn chapter1:10 If we say that we have not sinned,we make him a liar,and his word is not in us. Our focus should be continually be about Christ His glorious Light!!!!
