Joy often seems unattainable in times of uncertainty and difficulty. The Bible however, promises believers a lasting joy from the Lord greater than our circumstances. If you desire to experience joy even in the face of challenges, Christina Patterson welcomes you to her 12 session Bible Study “Relentless Joy.” The Apostle Paul wrote the book of Philippians at a time of considerable uncertainty. He was in prison and not sure if he would live or die. However, Paul did not write to the Philippians to complain about his situation. He wrote to gush over how joyful he was in Christ, as well as to convey his hope for the Philippians to experience this same joy. For every reason Paul had to be discouraged, he relentlessly found more reasons to be joyful. Through this study of Philippians you will learn:
The difference between lasting joy and temporary happiness
How to fight for your joy - How to make the joy of the Lord your strength
What habits lead to experiencing joy
Each session includes the following: key insights from your reading, a viewer guide, study questions, journal prompt, and more. You’ll also find articles titled “A Closer Look” throughout this study to gain a deeper understanding of how to experience the joy of the Lord in your everyday life. This Bible Study is designed to accompany the "Relentless Joy" video Bible Study series; however, it may also be completed as a standalone study. Find the strength to fight for your joy today with the “Relentless Joy” Bible study.
