Something to ponder today…
Jesus prayed: “I am coming to you now, but I say these things while I am still in the world, so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.” John 17:13
Jesus was praying those words to his Father right before he was betrayed and taken away to be crucified…and right before he was going back Home.
Do you think Jesus was saying to his Father something similar to those words when he was about to leave heaven and enter this messy world, “Father, I am leaving to go now into the world so that they may have the full measure of my joy within them.”?
He enters this messy world in a messy stable to give us the full. measure. of. joy.
Joy to the World!
