January 17, 2016 – Morning Worship
See how much joy there is in the Christmas story. Why is that? What is the application for you?
Christ’s birth: “good news of great joy that will be for all the people.” How should that affect our relationships with others?
Our true joy is found in the Lord, God the Father and our Lord Jesus Christ! This is what is most important to understand as Christians. Why?
Joy, for the Christian, is always present. That is why Paul can say “rejoice in the Lord always.” Joy transcends our circumstances. Why is that? Is that your experience?
We also are joyful because of the glorious gospel, the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ through faith alone. Why does that lead to such joy?
Saturday – Psalm 36:7-9; 103; 116; Philippians 3:7-11
Would those around you say that you are a joyful Christian? Why or why not? What could you do to be more joyful?
