Embracing the Unshakable Joy of the Kingdom
To hear happiness radiating from a prison cell is an anomaly; but when you read the Apostle Paul’s letter to the church in Philippi, that’s exactly what you hear. In this relatively short letter, Paul mentions joy (or happiness) 16 times! Paul had stumbled across the secret to living content, whole, and joyful in any situation. However, we often fall short of stepping into this ideal. To quote the off-beat comedian Louis C. K., “Everything is amazing and nobody is happy.” What’s gone wrong? Why can we have all the modern amenities money can buy and still lack the one thing we long for most? Humanity is on a search for a joy that transcends all circumstances and reaches into the deepest places of our soul. Join us as we study this ancient letter where the Apostle Paul shares with us the secret to the pursuit of happiness.
