Spiritual stability is the burden of most, if not all, the writers of the New Testament; they plead with us to stand firm, hold fast, and contend for the faith.

Likewise, if we want to live in spiritual stability, we must take care to maintain our joy. In today’s devotional, Dr. Michael Youssef draws out four ways to maintain joy from Paul’s letter to the Philippian church.
