We can know joy because we have hope!

Christians have a living hope that doesn’t change with changing circumstances.

“Joy” = “chara”

“Grace” = “charis”

Romans 12:12a (NIV) Be joyful in hope…

Romans 5: 3, 4 (ESV); Not only that, but we rejoice in our sufferings, knowing that suffering produces endurance, 4 and endurance produces character, and character produces hope…
We can rejoice amidst problems because suffering serves a purpose in our lives.

“Endurance” = the ability to handle pressure.

“Character” = proven reliable.

Sufferings can increase your hope.
God’s purpose is always greater than any problem.

V.5, and hope does not put us to shame, because God's love has been poured into our hearts through the Holy Spirit who has been given to us.
“The joy and peace of believers arise chiefly from their hopes. What is laid out UPON them is but little, compared with what is laid up FOR them; therefore the more hope they have, the more joy and peace they have . . .” (Matthew Henry)

We can know joy because God loves us.

Psalm 51: 10, 12;
Create in me a pure heart, O God, and renew a steadfast spirit within me.
12 Restore to me the joy of your salvation and grant me a willing spirit, to sustain me.
