The Duty of Joy

To be joyless is to dishonor God and to deny His love and His control over our lives. It is practical atheism. To be joyful is to experience the power of the Holy Spirit within us, and to say to a watching world, ‘Our God reigns.’

– Jerry Bridges, The Practice of Godliness, p. 119.
