Series on the Life and Work of the Holy Spirit

Fruits of the Holy Spirit Joy & Peace

Pauls Letter to the Galatians 5:22-23a

22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, 23gentleness and self-control.

 

John White (Canadian Christian author)[1924-2002] (page 58, Eros Defiled: the Christian & sexual sin)

For pleasure is a by-product, a side-effect. It (joy) takes us by surprise when we are looking for something else. Seek God and you find, among other things, piercing pleasure. Seek pleasure and in the long run you find boredom, disillusionment, and enslavement.

 

C.S. Lewis: Aim at heaven, and you get the earth thrown in. Aim at the earth, and you get neither.

 

Ecclesiates 2:1-11

John 16:20-24

20 Very truly I tell you, you will weep and mourn while the world rejoices. You will grieve, but your grief will turn to joy.21 A woman giving birth to a child has pain because her time has come; but when her baby is born she forgets the anguish because of her joy that a child is born into the world. 22 So with you: Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and no one will take away your joy. 23 In that day you will no longer ask me anything. Very truly I tell you, my Father will give you whatever you ask in my name. 24Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, and your joy will be complete.

 

John 16:33

33 I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.
