Sept 3: Fighting For Joy
Locations & Times
  • Gospel Community Church

    Sunday 9:30 AM
The reason the Bible tells us to have joy in God is because its depth is like the ocean, while the world offers a kiddie pool.
Joy is a state of delight and well-being in your soul, produced by the Spirit, from seeing the beauty of Jesus works and gifts.
The good news for the believer is that God will do for us what we cannot do for ourselves.
Ultimately I am not responsible for supplying my joy; God is the one who supplies; God invites us in to work with Him as He supplies us joy.
1) Fight for joy by relentlessly asking God for it in prayer.
2) Fight for joy by sitting under Gospel centered preaching.
God gave Bible saturated, gospel centered preaching to the church as a way to awaken joy in the souls of the hearers.
3) Fight for joy by preaching the Gospel to yourself.
Have you realized that most of your unhappiness in life is due to the fact that you are listening to yourself instead of talking to yourself? - Martyn Lloyd Jones
Don't listen to yourself talk to yourself. - Martin Lloyd Jones
4) Fight for joy by regularly visiting the Lord's table.
