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.

    The apostle John keeps it clear. I love the way Peter and John keeps it simple to the sinner.
    They express Jesus and salvation as the gift it truly is and not a religion. It just gives the weak and unlearned so much hope to press forward.
