But the fruit of the Spirit is . . . JOY . . . (Gal. 5: 22)
Joy – Greek Chara – a deep-seated gladness
despite regardless of the circumstances.
So what’s the difference between joy and happiness? I can be happy but not really have joy. Happiness is circumstantial. JOY is finding that delighted calm – no matter what my circumstances.
Flipping JOY around, I find myself in the flesh of Sorrow and Woe.
Are you pursuing JOY or happiness? I want to be blessed with Joy!
