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.
1Jo 1:4 These things write we unto you. This assurance of the divine fellowship is given in order that your joy may be full. They may rejoice with the fullness of joy in the glorious hope.

It depends where you are looking for your Joy? God tells us to be angry and sin not. Anger is part of the grieving process as long as you don 't get stuck there. Ultimately our Joy should come from God...The writer of 1 John is telling us he wrote this epistle to tell us how to get that Joy verse 4...I 'm reminded of Nehemiah 8:10 The Joy of the Lord is our strength...We need to read all 5 of the epistles of John to find out how to obtain and KEEP our joy.

This completed joy or fullness of joy how can it be captured with so much anger in this world
