Joy Together

I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.

Philippians 1:3-6


Really Living

Have you ever had a moment when you thought, “Now, I’m really living!”? All of us want to experience that good life, but those feelings of “really living” seem to fade over time. This week, we’re remembering that life with Jesus allows us to really live. But, what does life with Jesus look like?

A Clear Perspective In Unclear Circumstances

Experiencing hardships is a normal part of life that can cause us to focus on negative feelings and anxiously anticipate negative outcomes. During a difficult time in his life, Paul rejoices and models for us how having a Christ-centered perspective will help us to maintain a positive attitude while having a positive influence on others.

Your Lens for Seeing Life

Like the lens of our eyes (or eyeglasses), we all carry around internal thoughts, feelings, and ideas that filter our everyday experiences and help us make sense of life. As the Apostle Paul writes to the church at Philippi, he begins by giving us insight to his core principles that help him understand life through the lens of joy.
