Where’s the Joy?

Excerpted from Keys to Joy: How to Unlock God’s Gift of Lasting Happiness

Read Galatians 5:22-23.

a.  What is the connection between the Holy Spirit and joy?

b.  Is this fruit automatic when you have the Spirit in you? Why or why not?

c.  Give an example to illustrate your answer to the previous question.

d.  How do we get the fruit of the Spirit? Do we have to work to produce it or does the Holy Spirit produce it when we are in connection with Him? Explain.

e.  How does John 15:1-8 add to your understanding of fruit? What does it say we need to do to produce fruit?

f.  If you don’t have all the qualities in Galatians 5:22-23, ask the Holy Spirit to reveal why you don’t have them and what you need to do. Then listen and do what He tells you.

“John records a wonderful statement made by Jesus, “I have told you these things so that you will be filled with my joy. Yes, your joy will overflow! (John 15:11 NLT).  Jesus wants our joy to overflow.  What are these things that Jesus spoke of?  In this book, Keys to Joy,  Ken and Gaylyn Williams, the father-daughter writing team, do us a favor by reminding us of the things that lead to joy in the Christian life.  Based on the study of God’s Word, the contents of this book will lead the reader to a greater sense of who God is, and a deep abiding peace in the One who loves us and wants a relationship with his children.
