Commentary
Wesley's Notes on the Bible

1:4 That your joy may be full - So our Lord also, John 15:11; 16:22. There is a joy of hope, a joy of faith, and a joy of love. Here the joy of faith is directly intended. It is a concise expression. Your joy - That is, your faith and the joy arising from it: but it likewise implies the joy of hope and love.

The greatest design that ever God had in the world, is certainly the sending of his own Son into the world.
