Happiness is not a fruit of the Spirit, but Joy is! What happens when we confuse happiness with joy? When we yield to the Spirit, He opens our eyes to God’s grace around us and fills us with joy (Romans 15:13). Joy is not to be found in a fallen world; it is only fellowship with God that can make our joy complete (1 John 1:4).
Grab your Bible (or pull up an online version), and prepare to learn at the table with our Bible study teacher, Ruth Christian. She’s here with her lesson Lesson #24 titled, “Victory Over The World” in 1 John 5:1-5.
