Joy in God and sanctification go hand-in-hand.  When we enjoy God, we become more sanctified (more Christ-like).  Why?  The more we enjoy God, the more we become like him because God is the greatest enjoyer of God in the universe.  God is completely God-centered.  For him to be something-else-centered would make that thing God.  If God were enjoying something greater than himself, then we should strive to enjoy that thing.
