Philippians, Joy in Jesus #5
As the news cycle continues to churn this week, I can’t help but be reminded of Jesus’ promise to His disciples shortly before His crucifixion. “In this world you will have trouble, but take heart! I have overcome the world.” As believers in Him, everything hinges on that reassuring truth. Indeed, that’s exactly why we gather on Sundays and that’s what our Philippians series is all about. Please continue to pray for that peace to be supernaturally growing in our hearts week by week!
Also, don’t forget about the children’s ministry interest meeting today! (9/12/21) This will be an opportunity to talk about the strategic opportunity we have, the vision for passing the Gospel on to the next generation, and an overview of the plan. I’ll work to keep it short!
God intends to do God size things as we open Philippians each week. And certainly, there is no greater miracle in the human soul than to experience genuine joy in the person and work and presence of Jesus Christ. That’s the greatest miracle that there is for a human soul — to rejoice in the person and work and presence of Jesus.
That’s the “Joy in Jesus.”
I ask you to be praying that the Holy Spirit would make Jesus more glorious in our eyes, that our bond together as those who are bound together in him would only deepen and strengthen and that our witness to an outside world that we belong to Jesus Christ would only be emboldened.
