Series: Good News! | Week 5: Press On
Philippians 4:4-5 “Always be full of joy in the Lord. I say it again—rejoice! Let everyone see that you are considerate in all you do. Remember, the Lord is coming soon.”
Discover 1. Following the plea for unity in vs. 2-3, how can the commands of these verse be a cure for disagreements? 2. What superlative words does Paul use in these 2 verses alone? Why? 3. How is joy in the Lord different than other kinds of joy?
Respond 1. Where do you usually go when you’re trying to find joy? Spend a few minutes talking to God about what it looks like for you to have joy in Him. 2. Would the people you interact with daily describe you as considerate or gentle? Ask God to grow you in this area, knowing He is near, giving you what you need to live for Him.
