We don't have JOY because we don't know what it is. The world defines JOY as great delight or happiness caused by something. The Bible tells us that JOY is the Fruit of the SPIRIT. Galatians 5:22, "But the Fruit of the SPIRIT is love, JOY..." Therefore, JOY must be our relationship with GOD! It is the result of our living by the SPIRIT and walking by the SPIRIT. JOY is not a temporal "thing" that comes and goes; IT is the fullness of GOD, IT is PERMANENT, and then our lives are FULL OF JOY. AMEN!
