A Survey of Biblical Joy
Joy is a gift from God.
God grants joy to those who believe the gospel.
Joy is produced by God the Holy Spirit.
Joy is experienced most fully as believers receive and obey God’s Word.
The believers’ joy is deepened through trials.
The believers’ joy is made complete when they set their hope on the glory of heaven.
