Joy is the product of an abiding faith that enables the faithful to overcome all obstacles. It consists of eternity and it is surety of the gift of eternal life that Jesus offers to all who believe in Him. This kind of joy isn’t dependent upon anything material and no earthly circumstance can destroy it. It is the bond of the believer to God, through Jesus Christ and nothing can break that bond. It is an internal refuge for all who belong to Jesus. It is the believers source of strength. True joy is Jesus living in the hearts of those who love and trust Him.
