THEREFORE WITH JOY – Pt 1
The Bible is full of examples of what can be achieved when we do it with great joy.
WE FIND STRENGTH
Then he said to them,
Do not sorrow, for the joy of the Lord is your strength.
LEAVE SORROW BEHIND AND FIND STRENGTH IN JOY
WE ARE SENT FORTH
for I might have sent you away with joy and songs, with timbrel and harp?
SERVE SO YOU CAN LEAVE WITH A JOYFUL FAREWELL
WE SERVE THE LORD
“Because you did not serve the Lord your God with joy and gladness of heart, for the abundance of everything.
DON’T LET THE DESIRE FOR THINGS STOP YOU SERVING GOD WITH JOY
WE FOLLOW GODLY LEADERS
1 Kings 1:40
And all the people went up after him; and the people played the flutes and rejoiced with great joy, so that the earth seemed to split with their sound.
FIND JOY IN FOLLOWING GODLY LEADERS
WE BUILD GOD’S HOUSE
Then the children of Israel, the priests and the Levites and the rest of the descendants of the captivity, celebrated the dedication of this house of God with joy.
MAKE BUILDING GOD’S HOUSE YOUR PRIMARY JOY
WE GO TO CHURCH
For I used to go with the multitude; I went with them to the house of God,
With the voice of joy and praise.
JOY GETS YOU TO CHURCH IN THE RIGHT SPIRIT
