Grace and Joy

“The Greek word for joy is chairo. This word is related to charis, which means “grace.” Joy, therefore, is literally rooted in grace. Every time we experience a revelation of grace, joy is the natural consequence.” (Jonathan Jackson)

“The root word of eucharisteo is charis, meaning ‘grace’. Jesus took the bread and saw it as grace and gave thanks…eucharisteo, thanksgiving…also holds its derivative, the Greek word chara, meaning ‘joy’.” (Anna Voskamp)

“Blessed are you. Blessed means “happy,” referring to the special joy and favor that comes upon those who experience God’s grace.” (Foundation Study Bible, Luke 6:20)

“And how can one receive and discern the ways of grace? Answer: The signs accompanying grace are much joy, peace, love, and truth.” (Pseudo-Macarius)

“This is what grace does… It connects us to the invisible One in an eternal love relationship that fills us with joy we have never known before and gives us rest of heart that we would have though impossible.” (Paul David Tripp)
