Christian Quotes: J. I. Packer

Is joy your natural state? According to Scripture, we are to have joy always. Not happiness, though, which can be fleeting. We can have a deep “abiding” joy in our spirit no matter what’s happening around us. How do we get it? Start with thanking God for sending His Son to save us, and see where that leads you.

Blessings, Heather

“We need to discover all over again that worship is natural to the Christian, as it was to the godly Israelites who wrote the psalms, and that the habit of celebrating the greatness and graciousness of God yields an endless flow of thankfulness, joy, and zeal.”

J. I. Packer

“With joy, you will draw water from the wells of salvation. And you will say in that day: “Give thanks to the Lord, call upon his name, make known his deeds among the peoples, proclaim that his name is exalted.”

Isaiah 12:3-4
