Inspired by . . . Day 22: the JOY of Jesus


This post is part of a 31 day series on JOY

You may access all the past days by clicking here.



Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me,

that they may be one as We are.  John 17:11



Jesus’ greatest JOY was completing the work that His Father gave Him to do.

We will find our greatest JOY in the very same way; by completing the work our heavenly Father has given us to do.

And what is that work?

To be a saint, a walking, talking, living, practical epistle of what

God Almighty can do through the Atonement of the Lord Jesus Christ—

one in identity with the faith of Jesus,

one in identity with the love of Jesus, one in identity with the Spirit of Jesus

until we are so one in Him that the high-priestly prayer

not only begins to be answered,

but is clearly manifest in its answering—

“that they may be one, even as We are.”




Yes, Beloved, you are called to a saint. It is a high calling, indeed. And yet, there is only one thing we need to do to achieve this calling.

Be obedient to the Holy Spirit.


By allowing God to work in and through our lives, the work of the heavenly Father will be done. Then we shall receive the JOY that Jesus knew, and hear these words:


‘Well done, good and faithful servant; you were faithful over a few things,

I will make you ruler over many things. Enter into the joy of your lord.’





We talked about the specific work that God has given us to do on Day Sixteen
