So that our joy may be complete 

that which we have seen and heard we proclaim also to you, so that you too may have fellowship with us; and indeed our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ. And we are writing these things so that our joy may be complete.” (1 John 1:3–4, ESV)  John said that his joy is complete when others hear from them and believe the truth of who Jesus is and who he calls us to be and who we are in Christ Our aim is to be like Jesus and this is a picture of Christlikeness! When my joy and your joy reaches it’s zenith in knowing that others are walking in truth – we have been moved by God into a deeper / better / sweeter stage of Christlikeness.  If we identify with this scripture – then we do share in joy of Christ. “I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” (3 John 4, ESV)
