04 | Joy

 

John 16:16-24

The final gift of Advent is joy, and this week we're looking at Jesus' promise to give a fullness of joy that can never be taken away (John 16.22). Like the other gifts of Advent, joy is something required for human flourishing but often hard to secure. As we walk through life, sorrows seem to multiply. How can we receive life with full joy in the face of life's sorrows?
