Jesus Is Our Joy.

“You will fill me with joy in Your presence, with eternal pleasures at Your right hand.” – Psalm 16:11

Jesus finds His joy in God the Farher. “At that time Jesus, full of joy through the Holy Spirit, said, ‘I praise You, Father, Lord of heaven and earth, because You have hidden these things from the wise and learned, and revealed them to little children. Yes, Father, for this is what You were pleased to do.'” (Luke 10:21)

Our joy in following Jesus is in part due to our amazement at His love for us, demonstrated through His sacrifice. “However, I consider my life worth nothing to me; my only aim is to finish the race and complete the task the Lord Jesus has given me — the task of testifying to the good news of God’s grace.” (Acts 20:24) “…And not only so, but we also joy in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, by Whom we have now received the atonement.” (Romans 5:11) “We who worship in the Spirit of God and find our joy in the Messiah Jesus…” (Philippians 3:3) 

We will experience incredible joy when we see Jesus face to face one day, if we have a relationship with Him. “Now all glory to God, Who is able to keep you from falling away and will bring you with great joy into His glorious presence without a single fault.” (Jude 1:24) “You make known to me the path of life; in Your presence there is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” (Psalm 16:11)
