“… so we may be full of joy.”
“We write you now about
what has always existed,
which we have heard,
we have seen with our own eyes,
we have looked at, and
we have touched with our hands.
We write to you about the Word that gives life.
He who gives life was shown to us.
We saw him and can give proof about it.
And now we announce to you that he has life that continues forever. He was with God the Father and was shown to us.
We announce to you what we have seen and heard, because we want you also to have fellowship with us. Our fellowship is with God the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ.
We write this to you so we may be full of joy.” – 1 John 1:1-4
We, us, together, with those who were there, may be full of joy!!!
