Joy Inside

"I will be filled with joy because of you. I will sing praises to your name, O Most High." Psalm 9:2

Sometimes we Christians look to the world for our joy even though the world today is confusing and uncertain.  We, as Christians, must understand that true joy comes from a relationship with our Creator.  Our reactions to the world is measured by our relationship with God.  In times of chaos in our world we have opportunity to express our joy because we have a joy that transcends  the world. This is realized in our treatment of others,  our reactions to events, and our ability to reflect God's glory in all things.   Indeed, this requires intimate commune with our God.  When others are sad, angry, confused, lost, we have  opportunity to show and share the joy of knowing our Lord and Savior. We must  share  the love of our God through His Son, Jesus Christ. That is our joy!
