Hebrews 13:8, James 1:2-8
So what is joy? Is it just a fancy word for happiness? I’ve been studying a lot about joy these last months as we’ve encountered a lot of changes in our circumstances. Joy is the choice for deep gladness that stays even when things around you all seem to be going wrong. “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds.” Happiness can change with the wind, but joy comes from the security of having an intimate and growing relationship with Jesus. “Jesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.” Joy can be just as everlasting as Jesus. How can you experience joy starting today?
