Always be joyful.
Keep on rejoicing in the Lord at all times. I will say it again: Keep on rejoicing!
Rejoice and be extremely glad, because your reward in heaven is great! That's how they persecuted the prophets who came before you."
However, stop rejoicing because the spirits are submitting to you. Instead, rejoice because your names are written in heaven."
Be joyful in hope, patient in trouble, and persistent in prayer.
as sorrowful and yet always rejoicing, as poor and yet enriching many, as having nothing and yet possessing everything.
