1,000 Gifts

"You will be most remembered — by what brought you most joy. The joy of the Lord is your strength and the person of Christ is your unassailable joy – and the battle for joy is nothing less than fighting the good fight of faith. Joy isn’t an optional feature to the Christian life — it’s the vital feature of the Christian life. Battle for joy or lose your life."
