⁣More than that, we also rejoice in God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have now received reconciliation.
Romans 5:11 ESV

Joy is commanded throughout the Torah. This is what the book of Deuteronomy has to say about the oppressive, burdensome sacrificial system:

ch12 - You shall eat your sacrifices before YHWH your God and rejoice before him.
ch14 - You shall eat there before YHWH your God and rejoice.
ch16 - You shall rejoice before YHWH your God.
ch26 - You shall rejoice in all the good that YHWH your God has given to you and to your house.
ch27 - You shall rejoice before YHWH your God.

God's Law is only burdensome to those who keep it in order to earn their way into God's favor. That will never work. His commandments bring a level of fulfillment and peace that can't be found anywhere else, but it is only through the reconciliation purchased by Yeshua that we can ever achieve that joy. Any other path leads only to disappointment and heartache.
