    Edna: It is a Feeling. Those who're Saved have Great Joy in Their Heart:if They are Studying,telling Others The Way of Salvation,having Fellowship. That's why Paul and Others were Singing in Prison. Acts 16:25. The Lord keeps The Joy in Our Heart: Jude 24. Deep Down In Our Heart. One who is NOT Saved will NOT have that Joy. Pastors say if you feel lost,no joy don't worry,that's Satan./That's False
