Joy is a feeling of exuberant happiness experienced at a particular time. It is referenced frequently in the Old and New Testaments, most notably in Luke 2:10-11:

"When an angel appeared to shepherds in the Galilean countryside to announce the birth of a Savior, he said, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of a great joy which shall be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord."

Joy is considered by many Christians to be one of the fruits of the Holy Spirit.
