Galatians 5:22 (KJV) But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness, goodness, faith,

What exactly does joy mean? What was the writer of Galatians saying when he was talking about this fruit of the spirit?

Joy can be defined as gladness and delight. It can also be said to be a feeling of great pleasure and happiness.

Going through the bible, we can define joy to be a feeling of good pleasure and happiness. This feeling is dependent on who Jesus is, not on who we are or what we are experiencing around us.

Joy comes from the Holy Spirit, abiding in God’s presence and from hope in His word.

Dear children, understand that joy is not found in possession, activities or other people. Joy is found in God, in His presence, in His spirit and in who He is.

As children, learn to be joyful in all circumstances. Never allow your countenance to be down. You should always exhibit this priceless fruit of the spirit wherever you find yourself.

As parents, let us learn to affirm our children as this will also be a source of encouragement to them even as they strive to be more joyful, by the spirit.

Lord, help me to live a life of joy; Amen.

Action point:
Ask for the spirit of joy

I am a joyful child. I have the spirit of joy in me.
