Joy is mostly elusive and transitory. It's hard to find and it's harder to keep. When Paul, an apostle of Jesus, wrote to his friends, he often did so in very difficult circumstances. He was in jail, he was under pressure, his resources were low. Yet he talked of joy and living a life of rejoicing. This was not about a victorious moment, but an ongoing state of joy that was not dependent on how life was treating him. Paul's joy was based on his relationship with Jesus. This meant he had confidence in the future, rather than being dominated by anything he faced in the present.
