Jesus Is Our Source Of Joy.

“Simply being in the presence of God brings us great joy. It happens as we listen to Him speak in His Word; it happens as we pray. But it also happens as we simply enjoy His presence.” – Billy Graham (*quote, not Scripture)

The Lord promises that people who experience the true joy only He can bring will recognize that He is the source. “Singers and dancers alike will say, ‘My whole source of joy is in You.'” (Psalm 87:7) “There I will go to the altar of God, to God – the source of all my joy. I will praise You with my harp, O God, my God!” (Psalm 43:4) “Splendor and majesty are before Him; strength and joy are in His dwelling place.” (1 Chronicles 16:27)

We bless others by reminding them where they can find true joy – in our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. “May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in Him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.” (Romans 15:13)

As we follow the example Jesus has set for us, we too become a source of joy to those around us. “Though you were once despised and hated, with no one traveling through you, I will make you beautiful forever, a joy to all generations.” (Isaiah 60:15)
