Finding Joy

“It’s Found in the Lord”

So many individuals these days are looking for happiness.  They will go to great lengthens for a moment of bliss even if it means incurring large sums of debt.  Some believe that happiness can be found in a big purchase, someone’s embrace, or a new drug.  The reality is that these individuals are searching for the wrong thing.  Instead of searching for happiness; we need to seek joy in our lives.  Paul says that one of the fruit of the Spirit is joy.  During the month of March we will discover this truth through our study of Paul’s letter to the church at Philippi.  Let me invite you to join us on this quest to find joy.

Finding Joy in our Service
Let's be honest for a moment.  Doing our daily chores may not bring us the greatest joy in the world.  Sometimes our work becomes routine and dull.  Serving the Lord may have become another activity in our already busy schedule.  How do we find joy in serving the Lord?  That's what I want us to discover as we look at Philippians chapter two

    Finding Joy in our Difficulties
     Life often presents us with difficulties that must be overcome. Maintaining a spirit of joy during these moments can be a real challenge. Paul wrote to the church at Philippi to share some words of encouragement with them. As we read his words, we can discover the secret to his joy despite the difficulties he faced.

    Finding Joy in the Lord
    The second fruit of the Spirit mentioned by Paul in Galatians chapter five is joy. Nehemiah told the Israelites that the joy of the Lord is our strength. I believe there is a growing segment of our society looking for joy rather than happiness. We need to point these individuals to the joy that is found in worshipping God.

    Love Always Hopes
    We are blessed to have Randy Pim here as our speaker today while Tom is on his mission trip to Africa. Randy serves as the director of Camp Allendale. Randy and Nancy have been a blessing to the camp for more than a decade now. Today, he is speaking about love and how it always hopes.

    A Selfless Love
    Benjamin got caught with the cup in his bag, but it was Judah who tried to take the punishment for the crime. Judah will plead for the life of his brother and father here in Genesis chapter 44. The type of love produced by the Holy Spirit is agape love which is what we see here in our story today. It is the type of love we are to share with those around us.

The E-letter for September 6th

Here’s some church news for you that might impact your life ________________________________________ This week’s message: “Come and See” from John 1:35-42 This is a huge weekend for Indianapolis when it comes to sports. Friday night is all about the high school football games taking place throughout the state. Saturday means college football games with thousands of fans gathering in stadiums to cheer on their team. Sunday the Colts kick off their season with a game against the Bengals from Cincinnati. This weekend Indianapolis is hosting racing fans from across the country who will pour into the Speedway to watch several NASCAR races. They even have a dirt track set up inside the complex for a special race. Sports fans will be going crazy with these events and many more that I failed to mention. People will be spending tons of money on tickets, parking, concessions, and memorabilia items. Fans are an important part of the equation when talking about sports. Without fans; it’s hard to support the players and teams. Would you consider yourself a fan of the Colts, Pacers, or Indians? Do you have a favorite driver to cheer on this weekend? Will you be attending a sporting event this weekend or will you be glued to the television? Are you a fan of Jesus Christ? That seems like a no brainer for some of us, but that’s a legitimate question that must be asked. Chair 1 for Dann Spader is for the fan of Christianity. Jesus invited his first admires to come and see. Andrew and Philip would become disciples later, but first they were fans of Jesus. They wanted to see what the rabbi was up to and why John was calling him the Lamb of God. This Sunday morning, we are going to look at what it means to be a fan of Jesus Christ. Our scripture text will have us look at those first encounters for Andrew and Philip. I want to invite you to come and see what chair one has to offer. Invite someone to come and see where we are at in our spiritual journey with the Lord. We love fans here at Cumberland.
