Alegria e Felicidade
fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before him endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.
But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.

Rejoice with those who rejoice, weep with those who weep.

17 pray without ceasing,
18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.
»These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full.
Rejoice in your hope, be patient in tribulation, be faithful in prayer.
For the kingdom of God is not eating and drinking, but righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit;
Each one must give just as he has purposed in his heart, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.

Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, Rejoice!
So you have sorrow now, but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and no one will take your joy from you.
But godliness with contentment is itself great gain.

I tell you that in the same way there will be more joy in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who need no repentance.
»Again, the kingdom of heaven is like treasure hidden in a field, which a man found and hid; and then in his joy over it he goes and sells all that he has and buys that field.
Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials,
for you know that the testing of your faith produces endurance.
May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Instruct those who are rich in this present world not to be conceited or to fix their hope on the uncertainty of riches, but on God, who richly supplies us with everything to enjoy.
