But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace,
patience, kindness, goodness,
faith, gentleness and self-control.
Against such things there is no law.
Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit, God’s spirit, not man’s effort. We all decide who will rule our lives, either by actively surrendering to Christ, or deliberately going our own way. The fullness of the Spirit and godly character await those who choose God over self.
