Week 2:  Extravagant Joy

New parents are filled with joy at the birth of their first child while the grandparents are ecstatic.  A child is beside herself waiting for a day at the Zoo.  A new job, a raise, a special recognition are all met with feelings of joy and excitement. 

 

The word "joy" in the Bible is filled to overflowing with those feelings and so much more.  The Greek word has the same root at the Biblical word for grace.  Recognizing the shared beginning  of these two words is to recognize that joy is a gift of God in our lives.  The source of such joy for believers is our Lord Jesus Christ, who in his mother's womb made his cousin leap for joy in the womb of Elizabeth.  Such God given joy is almost beyond our understanding and experience, yet it fills our lives both here in time and for eternity.
