We are compelled by God’s LOVE and the FREEDOM offered in Jesus to infuse our relationships with the mind of Christ. As the Spirit of God directs our life, we take on the CHARACTER of the Spirit. This Fall we will ask God to INFUSE in us the love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control of Christ through the Holy Spirit!
Listen to Infuse JOY

Galatians 5:22-24, Luke 10:17-24
The fact is always obvious much too late, but the most singular difference between happiness and joy is that happiness is a solid and joy a liquid.
Are quotes like this an excuse to be grumpy Christ followers. I think so.
“I don’t have to be happy right now, but I have the joy of God.” Really?
Aren’t joyful people happy? Isn’t that why you say they are joyful?
You can be one of those people.
Pastor Brad searched the New Testament and found that happy, joy, and blessedness are used interchangeably. The Joy God gives, by His Spirit, will help you be a happy person. Listen to this encouraging message to discover how to Restore Joy, the Real McCoy.
