This was a man who was overflowing with the Joy of the Lord.

He truly followed the recipe for Joy below!

Do you have Joy in your life? Not just on the surface, but do you really have Joy in your heart in the things you are doing day-to-day?

Of course we all have our moments, we will have bad days and good days. But deep in your heart, is there Joy? When something in your life happens that is less than favorable, are you able to lean on something bigger than that situation? I hope so. If not lets look at a quick path to finding pure Joy.

I’m sorry that I don’t remember where I heard this from, so lets just give the credit to Jesus!

How to find Joy:

J – Jesus First!

O – Others second

Y – Yourself last

Simple right?

This is what the book of Matthew tells us in chapter 6, verse 33:

But seek first the kingdom of God and His righteousness, and all these things shall be added to you. 

Jesus is telling us here, just seek everything about Me; we need to make Him the top priority in our life, and then with this pursuit, live better, live more holy and Godly. Turn from the sin in our life. Then all these things can be added to us.

    Psalm16:11 – …. “In Your presence is fullness of joy ….” Real, pure joy only comes from the LORD and knowing Him.

    Jesus tells us in John 15:4 to abide in Him and He will abide in us. If we do this, Jesus says that His joy will remain in us and be full (John 15:11 – “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy may be full”).
