1/23/21 – To Make You Happy – Part 2 (Quick Read)

We speak a lot about what Jesus provided, but recently we explained WHY Jesus provided us what He did. We said that His motivation was for your enjoyment — simply to make you happy. This is not just something to make you feel better. This is, in fact, a biblically proven fact. God shared everything He has with you to make you happy! That’s the real reason.

When the Bible refers to the Father’s or Jesus’ inheritance, it refers to it as something that brings joy. Sometimes it just straight up calls it “joy” (Mat. 25:21). Jesus, when speaking about sharing His inheritance with us says:

John 17:13 (NKJV) …and these things I speak in the world, that they may have MY joy fulfilled in themselves.

Jesus spoke of sharing His inheritance with us and He spoke of it in His disciples’ hearing. Why? He said, that we might have HIS joy full in ourselves. That means that He wants us to experience the SAME joy that He experiences day-to-day.

At the right hand of God, Jesus enjoys all that is the Father’s constantly. It brings Him joy. Now He wants you to know it, so it can bring you the same joy that it brings Him.

Psalms 16:11 (NKJV) In Your presence is fullness of joy; At Your right hand are pleasures forevermore.
