When in your life have you experienced real joy? When you graduated from college, got married or had your first child? For most of us, we experience joy in fleeting moments, but what if we could experience it all the time?

Most of the time, we place our joy on temporary things, forgetting that in Jesus there is real joy; joy that cannot be taken from you. When we live our lives for Christ, even when the storms hit, we will be joyful, because we know our Savior is still on our side, fighting out battles. Jesus also wants us to be joyful, He says so in the following passage!

These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.”

John 15:11 ESV


Jesus doesn’t want us to be sorrowful; He wants us to light up this world. All that considered, how can you spark joy this week? Maybe it’s by helping a neighbor or inviting someone to the Easter gatherings so they can experience Christ for themselves. However you do it, you can spark joy in one person’s life this week.
