Being a Carrier of Joy

As Christians, we are to carry the joy of our salvation everywhere we go. We have the power to influence lives positively here on earth with the joy of the Lord. We have the power to brighten people’s day, break off heaviness, and lead people to a deeper revelation of the goodness of our Lord when we reflect his joy to others.

Being a Carrier of joy

Just so, I tell you, there is joy before the angels of God over one sinner who repents. Luke 15:10

In order to truly show the world who our heavenly Father is, we must be carriers of joy. We must be a people identified by the joy that only comes from restored relationship with an all knowing, all powerful, and all loving God.

The joy of the Lord is your strength. Nehemiah 8:10

Being a carrier of joy

The fact is that people, circumstances, trials, work, and stress do not have the inherent ability to steal our joy. It’s when we open my hearts to negativity that we allow stress to come in like robbers and take what is rightfully ours in the Lord.

It’s when we allow negative comments, or problems to take precedence over the hope we have in Jesus that we lose our joy.

To be carriers of joy, we have to choose to value the fruit of the Spirit over worldly emotions. We have to choose to only open our hearts to the things of God and shrug off that which is fleeting.

Being a Carrier of joy

If we don’t take control of our thoughts and cast any fear, worry, or doubt on the shoulders of our heavenly Father, the circumstances of this world will rule us rather than the steadfast joy of the Spirit.

For you shall go out in joy and be led forth in peace; the mountains and the hills before you shall break forth into singing, and all the trees of the field shall clap their hands. Isaiah 55:12

God’s desire for us is to be a people of joy. He yearns to make us children who are overwhelmed by his love to the extent that the cares of this world fades in comparison to his grace and affections. Choose today the joy of the Lord over the stress and cares of the world.

Being a Carrier of joy

Experience today the lifestyle of carrying the joy of the Lord with you everywhere you go.


May you be filled with joy in the knowledge of God’s great love for you.


Many thanks for coming around, until next time……
