A lack of joy in our life doesn’t come because of the presence of bad things, it comes because of the absence of Jesus.
Does being a Christian means that we are exempt from the problems that the rest of the world experiences? Or, if we still do have the same daily struggles as everyone else, what is different about our experience? Is joy a plucky smile in the midst of pain? Is it even an emotion? We continue our study on the Fruit of the Spirit by looking at joy, what it is, and where it comes from.
