“Joy” Rivers begin somewhere. It might be snow melting from on top of the mountain or a spring on the side of the hill, but the water comes from somewhere. All rivers have a source. And so it is with joy. We want to be happy, to be content, to experience joy, but we tend to focus on the thing itself rather than where it originates from. For those who follow Christ, our joy does not come from a star, but from the One who put it in the sky!

“Peace” It’s a commonly understood practice. If I wrong someone, I need to pay the price to make up for it. If I back into their car, I pay to fix it. If I drop the vase, I pay for it. But what if the cost is too high? Usually, it means a debt is owed, and the relationship is strained. Such is the power of the Gospel. To pay the price of my wrongs, I find myself bankrupt. Unpaid sin means a broken relationship. But as God sent Jesus into the world, and the debt has been paid. Surrendered to Christ, the peace beyond my ability to comprehend, pervades my life.
