The Kingdom of heaven is like …

“If you build it … he will come”

What gives you true JOY?

What is most effective at ROBBING your joy?

What is the real TRAGEDY?

the things I love to do
what I was created to BE


The power and awe of the VOICE OF GOD

Galatians 5:16 & 1 Peter 1:6-9
Though you have not seen him, you love him. Though you do not now see him, you believe in him and rejoice with joy that is inexpressible and filled with glory, --- 1 Peter 1:8

The Joy Equation

John 15:4-5 + Galatians 5:22-23

John 15:4-5 ---- Abide in me, and I in you. As the branch cannot bear fruit by itself, unless it abides in the vine, neither can you, unless you abide in me. I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.

Galatians 5:22-23 ---- the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control

= abide in Jesus and you have much true, lasting JOY
