Beloved: What was from the beginning, what we have heard, what we have seen with our eyes, what we looked upon and touched with our hands concerns the Word of life— for the life was made visible; we have seen it and testify to it and proclaim to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was made visible to us— what we have seen and heard we proclaim now to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; for our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. We are writing this so that our joy may be complete.
“…so that our joy may be complete.” This was written so YOU will read and believe. This was written so YOU will see and believe. This was written so that YOU will learn about Jesus and believe. Do you? Or do you deny the truth that is in front of you? Is your joy complete?
Prayer: Heavenly Father, your truth has been proclaimed, it has been seen and it has been written about. My joy is complete in YOU! In Jesus’ holy name, Amen.
Rejoice in the Lord, you just!
