God made me to have joy

The second fruit of the spirit is joy. Paul lists it before peace in his list of the fruits of the spirit: joy is central to Christian life.

The first response to Jesus is pure joy. Joy because your sins have been forgiven, joy because of the Holy Spirit taking residence in your heart. When you are right with God for the first time, when you are baptized, joy marks these experiences.
