Joy In Him

Therefore, do not let your good be slandered, for the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit. Whoever serves the Messiah in this way is acceptable to God and approved by men.

So then, we must pursue what promotes peace and what builds up one another.
(Romans 14:16-20 Holman Christian Standard Bible ®©)

What are you bringing into your environment of work, of family, or other circles? Frequently, the contrasting options are simply either celebration or jealousy.

What dominates your thought patterns? Being annoyed that someone else is getting by with something that you aren’t, or celebrating the victories and joys that you see in the lives around you?

The more you bring joy and celebration into your atmosphere, the more you benefit from it yourself. You also encourage others to dwell in Life and the presence of the King rather than under the influence of the one who has appeared to steal and kill and damage.
