No Greater Joy

“I have no greater joy than to hear that my children are walking in the truth.” 3 John 4 NIV
John could think of nothing that gave him more joy than hearing that his children were diligently following in the ways of the truth. “My children” could refer to those people John had lead to the Lord or simply all those who were under his pastoral care. Either way, they were totally committed to following Jesus. They were faithfully obeying His commands. There is no greater joy than seeing those you have loved and taught living a life of faithful obedience to Jesus.
Lord Jesus, I feel the same sense of joy in seeing those I have taught walking in the truth. Help me to continue to walk faithfully each day serving and glorifying You.
