Be Joyful
  • Wednesday: 6:30pm
  • 6728 SR 140 Wheelersburg Oh
  • Not Kid Friendly
The Joyful Bible Study explores the 4 chapters of the book of Philippians through a commentary by Warren Wiersbe who has a commentary for every book of the Bible in his "B" Series. I discovered this book at a time in my life when days were incredibly dark and seemed hopeless; the toughest days I've known.  Each chapter in the book of Philippians teaches us how to set our minds for Joy.  In chapter one we will learn how to have a "Single" mind , chapter two, a "Surrendered" mind, chapter three a "Spiritual" mind, and finally chapter four a "Secure" mind.  These Scriptures have helped me walk out of those tough times and continue to routinely bring me joy and peace when circumstances would promote anxiety. His Word is powerful.  His promises are true.  We can know His peace that passes all understanding and guards our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus.  That is true joy.
