“a Lamp to my feet. a Light for my path.” – John 15:9-11




Jesus said,

“As the Father has loved Me,

so have I loved you.

Now remain in My love.

If you keep My commands,

you will remain in My love,

just as I have kept My Father’s commands

and remain in His love.


I have told you this

so that My joy may be in you

and that your joy may be complete.”


– John 15:9-11 (NIV)






Jesus, as always, leads us by His own example

– He obeyed the Father,

and He and the Father are one,

united in love.


Jesus’ love for us is beyond our understanding

but the certainty that He loves us is the source of Christian joy.


This great love calls for a fruitful response on our part

and this should take the form of a fervent desire to imitate Jesus

and do the Father’s will in everything.






Jesus, You are the joy in my heart

– help me be more like You!
