For it is God which worketh in you both to will and to do of his good pleasure.
Philippians 2:13 KJV
Grace is the goodness of God given to us. We do not deserve it. Although undeserving he will give to us in all manner of things. You can not separate grace from the cross of Christ, the cross of Christ alone has made life possible. The cross was the destination of Jesus Christ. It’s the cross of Christ that makes the goodness of God accessible to us. Offering lambs in the early Church was a substitute for the one to come. ( Jesus ) Where sin abounded, grace did much more abound.
God is holy. What is holiness? Simply living outwardly the divine life of Jesus Christ Which dwells inwardly. (Scripture text) Romans 12:1-2

Joy in the bible is equal to strength. What is joy? An aspect of the fruit of the spirit. God’s kingdom is inside of every Christian believer, with the gift of the holy ghost. It is not meat nor drink it is not natural, it is supernatural. Gladness is one of the manifestations of joy. You can be strong with tears in you’re eyes.
