A definition of Joy by John Piper

joy

Joy in Christ is the deep good feelings in loving Him and believing Him. It’s the echo in our emotions — our hearts — of experiencing Christ as precious and experiencing Christ as reliable. It’s the deep good feelings of being attracted to Him for who He is and the deep good feelings of being confident in Him for what He will do.

Taken from Robert Somerville’s book If I’m a Christian, WHY Am I Depressed? Finding meaning and hope in the dark valley. One man’s journey.
