Galatians 5:22-23 (NLT)

22 But the Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,23 gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!

A mentor of mine in the 1970’s noted that many attendees at church looked as if they had just partake of a raw lemon.

He felt that Christians should exude joy in a radiant manner….with smiles included!

It is true that we are the redeemed, the chosen sons and daughters of the Most High King!  We should act like it.
