Fruit of the Spirit: JOY
This week’s Focus comes from Acts 16:16-40. Read the passage together.
Our joy does not come from our circumstances the way our happiness does. Our joy comes from something bigger–it comes from God—from forgiveness we have through Jesus—from knowing where we will spend eternity.
Read Nehemiah 8:10 together.
When things around us aren’t going our way, or when we aren’t happy, we can remember that our strength and joy come from God above.
- What is joy?
- How/why do we have joy?
- How did Paul and Silas show their joy?
- How does joy give us strength?
