MAY 30 – JOY

May 30                       2 Corinthians 8:1-5

1 Now I want you to know, dear brothers and sisters, what God in his kindness has done through the churches in Macedonia.  2 They are being tested by many troubles, and they are very poor. But they are also filled with abundant joy, which has overflowed in rich generosity.  3 For I can testify that they gave not only what they could afford, but far more. And they did it of their own free will.   4 They begged us again and again for the privilege of sharing in the gift for the believers in Jerusalem.   5They even did more than we had hoped, for their first action was to give themselves to the Lord and to us, just as God wanted them to do. 


Joy is the result of Christ in our life.  When we are in intimate relationship with Jesus we will have peace and joy because He gives that to us.  When you are hurting and life has you down claim Christ and His presence in your life.  He will walk with you through the trial and He will give you His peace and joy.  Joy comes from Jesus.
