Acts 15:7-21, John 15: 9-11
“Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God.” (Pierre Teilhard de Chardin)
While happiness is a feeling that depends on external circumstances, joy is a certainty because we know that God is with us and His love will never fail us no matter what happens. Therefore, joy has its source in the presence of God.
“You have made known to me the path of life; you will fill me with joy in your presence, with eternal pleasures at your right hand.” (Psalm 16, 11)
Questions for reflection:
1) What is the joy that Jesus is offering me today? How can I share this joy with others around me?
