Where does joy come from? Why is it so hard to find? How can we recover it once lost? How can we rejoice in a world with so much pain and cause for sorrow? Are we right to hope for joy everlasting? Joy has a story—of its source in God, its entanglement with the brokenness of the world, its redemption in the world’s healing, and its role as the object of our final hope. If we know joy’s story, we’re better equipped to recognize it when we stumble upon it and make it our own. Listen as Matt introduces us to God’s joy in creation, the ground of all true joy.
