The Fruit of Joy
May 11, 2018 • 1 Peter 1:3-9 Galatians 5:22-23
There's a strong cultural need to be happy. In fact, many of us find ourselves uncomfortable and unsure what to say or do when we interact with someone who isn't happy. But the reality is there are times it's just not possible to be happy; times when physical pain, emotional pain, sorrow, or injustice are insurmountable in our lives. Yet, the Bible challenges us to "rejoice in the Lord always." If there are times it's not possible to be happy, are there also times it's not possible to be joyful? Discover where true joy is found, what it looks like, and how Christians can experience this fruit of the Spirit in daily life, whether our circumstances are happy or not.
