Does “Joy:fully Lutheran” mean I have to smile all the time?

Many people shy away from the Church because they perceive Christians as fake and hypocritical. Being joyful does not mean being happy all the time. Nor does it mean pretending you are always okay. Joy can exist amid sorrow and struggle. Honesty about our struggle with sin and its effects in our lives drives us to the One who can and will aid in every trial and temptation, our Lord Jesus Christ. His love and His promises are our joy, even when happiness may remain beyond our grasp.

Vocation: Joy in Service

God calls you to serve both Him and your neighbor through your vocation. Your vocation is more than your job: It is the way God has called you to love — in your family, in the world, at work and at church. We work with joy, knowing that God is pleased as we do what He has called us to do. You may be a stay-at-home mom, a retiree or one who goes to work all day everyday outside the home. You may be a son, daughter, mother or father. Your work may benefit the Church directly or be entirely secular. We rejoice that God has so ordered this world that all we do serves and blesses His creatures and His creation. He rejoices in our service to Him and to our neighbor in all that we do. We rejoice in the ways God has called us to serve.

Love, joy, peace

The fruits of the Spirit in Gal. 5:22–23 begin with these three: love, joy and peace. God’s Holy Spirit fills us with love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. These are given to us as gifts. We live in this fruit as the Spirit lives in us. Love originates in God’s love for us in Christ, and results in our love for others. Joy comes from trusting in the Good News of God’s love in Christ, and results in lives of joy in God’s grace. Peace is the gift of reconciliation and fellowship with the Almighty God through the forgiveness of sins, and results in our lives of peace as we forgive just as Christ has forgiven us.

Joy tastes like bread and wine

Jesus invites sinners to eat with Him. He gives His own flesh and blood to feed them. In the gift of the Lord’s Supper, Jesus feeds His Church with His body and blood in and with the bread and wine for the forgiveness of sins and the gift of eternal life. This is a joyful feast. We come to the table with our sins and guilt, but walk away forgiven and free. We come to the table hungry for eternal food, and walk away filled with the promise of more to come. We come to the table wearied by this life, and we walk away fed with the promise that Jesus bears our burdens and will come again to usher in His Kingdom, in which there is eternal rest.
