James tells us to “count it all joy” when we fall into various trials. The Bible promises that the Christian life will include suffering & temptation, and it is not blind to the fact that we deal with indwelling sin, and the sin of others against us. Yet we are called to live joyfully, and joy is a fruit of the Spirit. So what should do we do when we just aren’t feelin it?
2:00 Being friends is like dipping your hands into a large bag of uncooked rice & sometimes laughing so hard that you get a little sweaty.
6:15 Anxiety is a kill-joy & the world we live in is so affected by sin that even the plants are trying to kill us.
10:00 Being joyful should be one of the marks of the Christian life—but joy and happiness are not the same thing.
15:00 The more you grow in the knowledge of the Lord, the more you will have joy in who He is.
17:20 True joy is not unattainable, even if you feel like it is.
22:30 There is a recipe for making joy unattainable & it can be repented of.
25:20 Don’t fall for the small, shelf-life of your counterfeit idols. Get in the Word daily! You do not need to be Spiritually starved.
