Keep your “JOY”

Our Small Group continued with another fruit of the Holy Spirit, and that is the fruit of “Joy”.  We had three questions to answer concerning how “Joy” affects our everyday lives.  How do we, as Christians, allow Joy to be seen in us?

  • What about your life would cause someone, who doesn’t know Christ, want to experience God?
  • Have you ever known someone full of Joy?  How did you know they were full of Joy?
  • Would your joy be gone if you lost ALL your possessions?

Take a listen to the video and hear about the unspeakable Joy that graces our lives.

“Under Observation”

Christians live under a microscope, even among other believers.  We are watched closely to see what our reactions will be to certain situations.  Will we get upset?  Will we lose it?  What will we do?  But if we allow God to be the head of our lives, He will receive the glory in all that is done unto His name.  If I continually praise Him and wait on Him, He will direct my path.  He giveth power to the faint; and to them that have no might he increaseth strength.  But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint” (Is.40: 29, 31).
The difference between Job and us is that we have the story of Job in the Bible, and, by reading that story, we can see what the outcome will be; in our lives, we cannot see what the outcome will be.  All Job possessed was his faith.  Shall our faith in God be any less significant than his?
