There are many things that bring us joy in life. Hobbies, pets, naps, vacations, family, friends, the list can be long and very diverse. The problem is that these joys are temporary. They don’t last. Our moods fluctuate, interests change, and circumstances vary. However, there is a joy that can grow, strengthen, sustain, and remain.
As Paul continues his letter to the church at Rome, he shares the source of this joy and how it changes us forever.
