“Your Joy Shall Be Full Even As the Father Hath Given Me Fulness of Joy”

Bryan Richards

Neal A. Maxwell

"The Father and Son desire to share even further their joy with us. ’For this cause ye shall have fulness of joy; and ye shall sit down in the kingdom of my Father; yea, your joy shall be full, even as the Father hath given me fulness of joy; and ye shall be even as I am.’ (3 Nephi 28:10.) Our share in such joy is wholly different from the fleeting satisfactions of the world that come from satisfaction for a season in ’the works of men.’ Even when sincere and significant, those satisfactions only last ’for a season,’ for He who has known full and true joy has so said. (3 Nephi 27:11.)
“How blessed we are, therefore, to experience such gospel gladness, as when, meekly, we come to know what Paul called ‘the deep things of God’ (1 Corinthians 2:10)…These transcending truths do bring us a stunning perspective, a ’knowledge of things as they are, and as they were, and as they are to come.’ (D&C 93:24.)” (Meek And Lowly, p. 46)
