Fruit of the Spirit: Joy Coloring Page
Description: Fruit of the Spirit: Joy Coloring Page
Bible Text: Galatians 5:22-23
Bible Lesson: This is the second of 9 printable coloring pages that highlight one of the fruits of the Spirit according to Paul in Galatians. Each fruit of the Spirit is represented by an actual fruit in order to help children learn all of the fruits of the Spirit. (The fruits have been chosen totally randomly.) This one is about joy and is represented by watermelons.
Joy is a deep conviction that we are in the right place doing the right thing. It’s the confidence that we are right before God and that He is smiling on us. It may not manifest itself in a happy emotion. Hebrews 12:2 tells us Jesus endured the suffering of the cross “for the joy that lay before Him.” Jesus wasn’t feeling joy as he hung on the cross, but he endured with the conviction that He was doing what God desired. As children color the page, teach them that the Spirit gives us joy by helping us be in the right place and helping us do the right thing.
