“Remain in my love.”  Let that phrase take over for a moment.  Close your eyes, repeat it quietly.  Let it wash over you.

“I have told you this so that my joy might be in you and your joy might be complete.”

All God wants is for us to be happy. Happiness is found in God’s commandments which were summarized by Jesus as this simple command:  “Love God and love your neighbor as yourself.”

Remain in his love.
