The Joy of the Lord Is Your Strength
Topic: Fruit of the Spirit Scripture: Nehemiah 8:9–12
Joy is an emotion that everyone experiences to one degree or another. But as the fruit of the Spirit, Christian joy is much more than an experience that comes and go with the changes of our circumstances. In fact, Spirit-produced joy regularly comes even in times of sorrow, bringing us back into the joy of God himself and protecting us from the crushing guilt of our sin.
