Today's devotion is based on John 17:13, “Jesus said] I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.”
Notice that Jesus didn’t pray you would receive “the full measure of joy.” Instead, he prayed that you would receive “the full measure of my joy.” Jesus found joy in using his life to do whatever was necessary to forgive our sins, prepare a place for us in heaven, and assure us that no person, experience, or sin will ever be able to take it away from us. May you find joy in serving those around you.
Please pray with me the prayer for today: Father in heaven, help me know the joy of Jesus each day. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
