TODAY’S SCRIPTURE: ‘Our relationship is with…Jesus…so that we can be completely filled with joy.’ 1 John 1:3-4 GWT
UCB Word For Today 15 June 2022 Devotional | MESSAGE
When joy is absent from your life, power is also missing (see Nehemiah 8:10). Our happiness shouldn’t be based on what’s happening around us; it should be dependent on our relationship with Jesus. John says, ‘We can be completely filled with joy’ (1 John 1:4 GWT).
Pastor Reimar Schultze notes: ‘John did not say this when all was well, but when…everything had turned to shambles.
1) All his fellow apostles had been murdered.
2) Rome had destroyed the temple [so]…not one stone was left upon another. Flavius Josephus, an eyewitness wrote, “The multitude of those that…perished exceeded all the destructions men or God ever brought upon the world.”
3) Many Jews and Christians became refugees. Average life expectancy was about forty years and 25 per cent of the people in Rome were slaves.
4) John himself lived as a condemned criminal on the Isle of Patmos. He had no earthly comforts;…no assurance of living another day. When the cup of misery was full, God commissioned [him] to show the world the absolute power and triumph of Christianity over everything…[John’s] writings, in reference to our daily walk, put a capstone on all that heaven intended to reveal in the Word: if we have apostolic fellowship, our joy will be full. You do not need pleasant circumstances for this to happen.’
The psalmist said it best: ‘In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore’ (Psalm 16:11 NKJV).

Have you ever made Jesus the Lord and Savior of your life?
If not, pray this prayer and start a new life in Christ.
Dear God, I come to You in the Name of Jesus. I admit that I am not right with You, and I want to be right with You. I ask You to forgive me of all my sins. The Bible says if I confess with my mouth that “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in my heart that God raised Him from the dead, I will be saved (Rom. 10:9). I believe with my heart and I confess with my mouth that Jesus is the Lord and Savior of my life. Thank You for saving me! In Jesus’ Name I pray. Amen.
