The Fruit of the Spirit is Joy
Written by: Ricky Spears Recorded by: Ricky Spears
This meditation is the third of a ten part series on The Fruit of the Spirit. So often, when we hear the word joy, we think about happiness. However, joy in a Christian's life is much more than mere happiness. In this guided Christian meditation, you'll contemplate some of the New Testament passages that explain what joy is, the things the Holy Spirit uses to produce joy, and how we can apply that joy in our walk with Christ. Joy is not something we produce on our own, but rather, the fruit of the Spirit is Joy.
We began this series with a contemplative overview of The Fruit of the Spirit, and then contemplated how The Fruit of the Spirit is Love. If you would like to do this particular series of biblical meditations in order, you'll want to begin with these two meditations. I've had an incredible experience with God in my life as He has used the time I've spent meditating on these passages and asking the Holy Spirit to produce better quality fruit in my life. I'd love to hear about your own experiences in the comments. (Photo by Seth Anderson. Original on flickr. Licensed under Creative Commons Attribution-Share Alike 2.0 Generic License)
