Plum Creek Christian Church
The Bible tells us in the book of Philippians how we can have joy no matter what our circumstances. The life of the Apostle Paul is a great example. Even while in prison Paul wrote to the church in Philippi to encourage the leaders to continue the Lord's work. How did Paul find peace in this situation? Only through trusting and obeying God was this possible. Paul had learned the secret to happiness was not about what was happening in his life. His joy came from his dependence on Christ. All of us want to be happy. Millions of dollars have been spent on the pursuit of happiness. But the fact remains no amount of money can compare to a life dedicated to serving Christ. We can also have joy during the hard times when we focus on Christ. To learn how to live joyful join us this week for the continuing sermon series on Unstoppable Joy.
