Jonathan Edwards
“The happiness Christ gives to his people is a participation of his own happiness.”
Richard Baxter
“The day of death is to true believers of happiness and joy.”
(1) Joy is DIFFERENT from happiness.
Bob Dylan
"We all do at certain points, but it's like water—it slips through your hands. As long as there's suffering, you can only be so happy. How can a person be happy if he has misfortune?"
(2) Joy is not DETERMINED by our circumstance.
Leonard Ravenhill
“This joy as real at the graveside as at the fireside. It does not evaporate in the heat of adversities. It does not wither at the onslaught of calamities. It does not sour under the test of poverty. It does not die at the cruel hand of tragedy. It does not falter in the presence of misery.”
2. JOY IS A PRODUCT OF YOUR SURRENDER TO JESUS.
C.S. Lewis
“It is not so much THE JOY OF THE LORD we are seeking as THE LORD OF JOY Himself.”
(1) Joy is ENRICHED when we give ourselves away.
(2) Joy is EXPANDED when we endure trials.

“It’s a bad world, an incredibly bad world. But I have learned a great secret. They have found a joy which is a thousand times better than the pleasure of our sinful life. They are despised and persecuted, but they care not. They have overcome the world. These people are the Christians—and I am one of them.”
