The Joyful Life

The Joyful Life: Joy and Peace | Philippians 4:2-9

We cannot hope to promote peace and reconciliation in the world until we have experienced peace with God and peace within ourselves.  As Paul suggests in his letter to the Philippians, to find this peace we must practice the presence of God, practice grateful prayer, and practice good spiritual hygiene. 

The Joyful Life: Lights in the World | Philippians 2:12-18

God is always with us and always at work in our lives, regardless of whether we’re aware of it or even ask for it.  So the Christian life is not about convincing God to intervene and work on our behalf; it’s about recognizing that God has intervened, that He is at work, and understanding what it means to respond to this truth.
