Grace and joy… one leads to the other.
Cause and effect.
You see this in the definition of Grace — it is that which causes joy in the human heart for a kindness granted.
This is just what the grace of God does — It makes the heart glad.
And fills it with joy and thankfulness.
In exactly the same way that it made you fully alive in Christ
and forgave your sins once and for all
And this joy entered your heart the day you were saved by grace through faith in Jesus.
Maybe you feel like you’ve lost the joy of your salvation or that it has been covered over by the cares and troubles of the world.
Let me tell you… His joy is still there. Look to him and you’ll see it break through.
