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.

    God sent his Son to save us from sin. He gave his Son for the sins of the world. Jesus did not die in vain. Sin separated us form God. Sin is every evil thing imaginable. God hates sin. The payment for sin is death. But Jesus laid down His Life for His Friends. God by His mercy and His love for us sent Jesus. Jesus came to do the Father's will. Should we continue in sin, knowing that Jesus died once and dyes no more? But if we sin, God is just to forgive us of our sin. 2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, will humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land. will heal them The wages of sin is death. the payment of sin is death We must walk according to our calling that God has set before us. We must finish the race. Not looking back, but looking forward unto Jesus the prize that is set before us.
