Why the word was written (3)
1 John 1:4
*And these things write we unto you, that your joy may be full*.
*Joy is different from happiness. Happiness is external, joy is internal. There are 3 paths to fullness of joy; the presence of God,(Psalms 16:11), Received Answers in prayer (John 16:24) and thirdly, the word of God.*
Jesus said in John 16:33 These things I have spoken unto you, that in me ye might have peace. In the world ye shall have tribulation: but be of good cheer; I have overcome the world.
*As we study the Word and we see our status there; those exceedingly great and precious promises communicate joy into our heart.  This is how and why we stay fresh and healthy, tribulation not withstanding, because the  word was written to minister fullness of joy into our heart. Proverbs 17:22 says, "a merry (joyful) heart doeth good like a medicine: but a broken spirit drieth the bones". When God sends his Word to heal and to deliver out of destructions,this you must know first,  that,that word will first minister joy into your heart before the other virtues  manifest. Joy is the FedEx (a courier service) of other blessings in the Word.*  Isaiah 12:3 Therefore with joy shall ye draw water out of the wells of salvation.
In the old covenant, the embattled prophet, Jeremiah testified to this channel of joy, Jeremiah 15:16 *"Thy words were found, and I did eat them; and thy word was unto me the joy and rejoicing of mine heart: for I am called by thy name, O LORD God of host"*. The psalmist, also knew this path, Psalms 119:111"Thy testimonies (words) have I taken as an heritage for ever: for they are the rejoicing of my heart".  Paul was not ignorant of this either, he said: Philippians 3:1
"Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you, to me indeed is not grievous, but for you it is safe.
The word of God is written to us that our joy to be full"!
*Joy is the FedEx of all other promised benefits in salvation. Acquiring  necessities and luxuries only birth happiness, i don't have to  wait for my spouse, parents, relationships or health, career or academics to give me joy anymore. My source of joy is the Word, as I eat the Word of God through reading & meditation, I receive my Daily Dose of fullness of joy. In Jesus name.*
