Love that is communicated correctly produces joy.
God communicated His love through giving us His Son.
2 step process of Joy:
- Communicated correctly.
- Received correctly.
God is the greatest communicator; He communicates through Words and actions and there are still those who do not receive.
1 Corinthians 13:1-3, NKJV “Though I speak with the tongues of men and of angels, but have not love, I have become sounding brass or a clanging cymbal. And though I have the gift of prophecy, and understand all mysteries and all knowledge, and though I have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, but have not love, I am nothing. And though I bestow all my goods to feed the poor, and though I give my body to be burned, but have not love, it profits me nothing.”
Love that produces joy when repeated over and over:
Love communicated correctly. Actions that prove the communication.
Right communication + Right actions = Right Joy
Both have to be willing to receive the love for it to produce the right joy.
