Evelyn Mason Wells: The Fruit of Joy — 12 Comments

  1. Evelyn, as always, your writing is a joyful reminder of all God offers us. Your description of the joy children display made me smile: “They readily embrace laughter; their pure joy is just as evident as that of a puppy who, in wagging its tail, cannot help but wag its whole body.” May we be so filled with God’s Spirit that His joy is evident in our lives in ways that draw others to Jesus.

    • Jeannie, thanks for your comments and your encouragement. He lets His joy shine through us, if we are willing.

  2. This lifted my heart. How beautiful, and what a perfect time for this teaching! It’s a Monday (I have a love hate relationship with Mondays) and there is a level of disbelief at most of the things happening within society. I find rest solely in the return of our good God, and His unconquerable kingdom. It is the joy of my soul and light of my life.

    • I’m so glad you were uplifted by reading the Bible study. We can rest in the Lord, and know He will meet all our needs.

  3. The Lord gives us His joy to strengthen us on our walk of life. Even when we’re sad, His joy is part of us. It helps us understand the difference between happiness, which is of the world and fades in and out, and His eternal joy that never fades. Thanks, Evelyn!

    • Karen, yes He does give us strength. You’re so right. The joy of the Lord never fades. Thanks for your comments.

  4. Thank you Evelyn for sharing. A wonderful reminder that the joy of the Lord is our strength and our joy is found in Christ.

  5. Evelyn, thank you for reminding us we can have joy even when turmoil is all around us. Thank you also for reminding us of the gift of salvation that is available to us. I love this Bible study!
