Jesus tells us that He has come to make our joy complete (John 15:11). What does this mean, though? It’s important for children to develop an understanding of what joy is and how it differs from mere happiness. This lesson explains that joy is more than a temporary feeling. It is an inner attitude of peace and security, given by Jesus. Happiness fades with circumstance, but joy is deep and lasting! 

Genuine joy comes from abiding in God’s love. When we rest in His presence and trust Him, we know the peace that passes all understanding and experience lasting joy. This doesn’t come from our own power or from circumstances. Jesus is the one who provides it. Joy is more than a feeling. It’s an attitude that comes from the Holy Spirit. Out of gratitude for God’s love, we can love and serve one another! 

Passage: John 15:9-17 (optional: add Psalm 98)

Target Audience: Kindergarten-6th grade 

Materials Needed: Construction paper; paper plates; glue; markers or crayons; tape; scissors; decorative supplies; string; items that make someone happy (treats, toys, etc.); musical instruments; Bibles.
