Finding Joy in Uncertain Times—Part 3
These days, we are bombarded with news stories and social media messages related to the pandemic, cyberattacks, global warming, the divided nation, etc., etc. These are certainly troubling and trying times. So how do we find joy when there is so much uncertainty and suffering in the world? Learn how to remain joyful as we follow the series titled, Finding Joy in Uncertain Times. The series will be based upon the New Testament book of Philippians, where we will learn what the Apostle Paul discovered about finding joy despite our circumstances.

Finding Joy in Uncertain Times—October 17
[Tim Haring]
Today's Takeaway | Joy comes when we work with God who is working in us
• We should obey because of the example of Jesus
• We should obey because of the example of Jesus
• We should obey because our God is God
Paul has in mind a ‘continuous, sustained, strenuous effort’, which is elsewhere described under the imagery of a pursuit, a following after, a pressing on, a contest, a fight, or a race.
–Dr. P.T. O'Brien
“…an examination of the other contexts…where [the phrase,“fear and trembling”] appears [in the Bible] suggests that the phrase has to do with an attitude of due reverence and awe in the presence of God, a godly fear of the believer in view of the final day.
- O’Brien
• We should obey because of the example of Jesus
• We should obey because our God is God
• We should obey because we care about those who don't know Christ


• We should obey because of the example of Jesus
• We should obey because our God is God
• We should obey because we care about those who don't know Christ
• We should obey because it results in joy
