Joy, according to D L Moody


These things have I spoken unto you, that My joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full.—John 15:11.

PEOPLE should look for joy in the Word, and not in the world. They should look for the joy which the Scriptures furnish, and then go to work in the vineyard; because a joy that don’t send me out to some one else, a joy that don’t impel me to go and help the poor drunkard, a joy that don’t prompt me to visit the widow and the fatherless, a joy that don’t cause me to go into the Mission Sunday-school or other Christian work, is not worth having, and is not from above. A joy that does not constrain me to go and work for the Master, is purely sentiment and not real joy.
