Connect, Lead, Equip: 10 Joyful Life Quotes to Share
Jesus is our Joy-Giver! Joy is rooted in relationship with Him. He intends for us to be joyful. It is life as Jesus lived it – He lived joyfully. And it is life as produced in us by the Holy Spirit. Joy is internal. It comes from within as the Holy Spirit is at work to produce the real life qualities of Jesus in us. Joy is not experienced by our direct determination to “get joyful.” Joy is fruit. You don’t get fruit by the direct action of putting it on a branch. You don’t pick up an apple and glue or tie it on an apple tree. Fruit is produced as a result of the branch being vitally connected to the tree and the life of the tree flowing through the branch so that it does what it was designed to do, produce fruit. Below are some encouraging quotes about the fruit of joyfulness.
