"Fruits of the Spirit - Joy"

Fruits of the Spirit - Joy
Galatians 5:22-23 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: against such there is no law.

Today we look at the word translated "joy." I want you to look at the faces of the people you see. How much joy do you see on their faces? People that live by the world will look like the world. This world is a sad, corrupted, self centered place without any self control. Even Jesus said the world hated him so in that you can see there is no joy in the world.

But God wants each of us to live surrounded by His joy. The Greek word means cheerfulness, calm delight, gladness and fulness. So as you can see the word "joy" in the Greek is a wonderful word!

Today make sure you experience the Joy of the Lord by living cheerfully for and through Him. Be glad in all things and in all things give thanks. Have a demeanor of "calm delight" with a cheerful disposition and a kind heart toward others. In this you will fully experience the joy God intended for you!
