So, the Lord has really been teaching us about joy. Why is it so hard sometimes? Well, candidly, and ultimately, it’s because of our sin and narcissism.
Read (listen to) John Piper’s resource as he notes the loss and judgment we have incurred in our conscious rebellion against God. It’s the cost of, as Piper writes, “sin and self-preference and self-exaltation.” Find his article entitled, “How Much Joy Did the Curse Cost Me,” here - https://www.desiringgod.org/interviews/how-much-joy-did-the-curse-cost-me
