People's Bible Notes for John 15:11


Joh 15:11 These things have I spoken . . . that my joy may remain in you. Strange words, that one about to be crucified should speak of his joy! His joy was union with and presence of the Father. He had "anointed him with the oil of gladness above his fellows" (Ps 45:7). He desired his disciples to have that joy, the constant consolation of the sense of the presence of Christ.

    Thank you Father for Your word.

    Greg; I agree with you; but what about the Saint who truly lives a holy and blameless life, but no one or very very few ever come to the Lord? I think the fruit of the Spirit and a character in the image of God; love joy peace patience kindness goodness faith meekness self-control; which can only come by being perfect with the Lord our God, and MUCH fiery trial and proving over time; is the fruit!
