E: 33 In All Things…Unshakable Joy

In All Things…Unshakable Joy:

Is your joy unshakable? Children can be quick to giggle, but sometimes as adults we can struggle to find our joy. The Apostle Paul may have known something we don’t for in the book of Philippians, he describes joy that is certainly not affected by his circumstances. Today, Melissa Kruger shares how her study of Paul’s letter gave her an unshakeable joy.

Discussion Questions:

  • What is Melissa’s biblical definition of Christian joy?
  • How is earthly joy different from the joy of the Gospel?
  • What are some reasons we struggle to have joy?
  • How is community an important part of having joy?
