Philippians-Joy

Joy: Philippians.

There is no shortage of options to pursue joy and happiness in our culture. We have more choices, more entertainment, more relationships, and for most, more wealth. And yet, something still seems to be missing. We also seem to be more anxious, more bored, more lonely, and more in debt than ever before. This doesn’t stop us from continuing to pursue the next best thing, hoping that when we achieve or acquire, we will find a joy that lasts. Maybe our need isn’t more…maybe “more” is our problem.

On the final night of Jesus life, perhaps the most sorrow filled night of his life, he said this to his disciples: “These things I have spoken to you, that my joy may be in you, and that your joy may be full!” (John 15:11) GK Chesterton also wrote in his book Orthodoxy, “Joy is the gigantic secret of the Christian”. According to Jesus, the joy we all want is already promised to us in abundance as followers of Christ. The question is, how do we tap into it? Live into it? Philippians will help us do that, written by a joy-filled apostle Paul, to a joy-giving church community. Our hope is that as followers of Christ, we too will discover for ourselves the gigantic secret of Joy in Christ.
