 Jesus said to his disciples: “As the Father loves me, so I also love you. Remain in my love. If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, just as I have kept my Father’s commandments and remain in his love. I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete.” (Jn 15:9-11) What brings us great joy in life? To know that we are loved for who I am and not for what I do or give to another! Jesus ' gift of love is unconditional. He loves us because he loves us. It is the Father's love for and in Jesus that is given to us. That love is the Holy Spirit. The love of Jesus is the gift of himself, the Father and the Holy Spirit. One of the fruits of the love of God in us is joy. This joy is not a passing high but a lasting presence that brings the truth of our identity into clarity. True love manifests itself in authentic joy, which in turn expresses itself in love. Thank you Jesus for your love! May I respond with love, flowing out of joy.
