The joy of the Lord is a gift from God. It doesn’t come from you doing something for the Lord, but when you understand what he has done for you. The gospel of Jesus is truly good news and it applies specifically to you. Christ saved you, cleansed you, and made you holy. Let the joy of this good news be your strength when you are feeling condemned, defeated or fearful. Once you fully grasp this, nothing will stop you from sharing the joy-filled good news of Jesus with others!
