Rediscover Joy

Rediscover Joy

Paul wrote this letter to be read to an entire community of people – a great congregation – and he wrote it from deep in a dungeon. Deep in a dungeon of the soul. And the chief characteristic of it is joy.

Paul, in chains in Rome, writes to his beloved friends and he talks to them about his greatest possible joy.

When you and I realize that the source of our joy is something which transcends every experience that we have here, something which actually involves the eternal and not just possessions…

When you and I discover who made us and for whom we were made, and we begin to live beyond the limits of our chronologies and for purposes that are much higher than anything typically set before us in terms of goals…

Then you and I begin to discover authentic and lasting joy.
