JESUS JOY Continuing to teach in the flat land, Jesus comforts His apprentices and a large group of followers saying, "GOD WILL BLESS YOU PEOPLE WHO ARE CRYING. YOU WILL LAUGH" [Lk 6:21b CE]. Some religious people never seem happy and it is rare to see a picture of Jesus smiling. The idea of God blessing people by giving them laughter and joy seems strange to some people who follow Jesus. Jesus teaches "IF YOU OBEY MY COMMANDS, YOU WILL REMAIN IN MY LOVE.  I HAVE TOLD YOU THESE THINGS SO THAT YOU CAN HAVE THE SAME JOY I HAVE" [Jn 15:10-11 IC]. Jesus has joy and wants us to have the same joy with laughter. Do you have Jesus joy? Home, BasicSubjects, Scriptures
