The Gift of Joy


Is the gift often confused with happiness. Yet it is quite different. The gift of joy is given by God for all to take and receive. It's the gift that fills your heart with absolute confidence that you belong to Christ. This gift must be given with the gift of Christ, because they really do go together. Without Christ there is no joy! Give someone the gift of Christ's Word and watch Him give them the gift of joy when they receive Him.

"I have loved you even as the Father has loved me. Remain in my love. When you obey me, you remain in my love, just as I obey my Father and remain in his love. I have told you this so that yo will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow!" John 15:9-11
