Joy | Mandy Lucas | 12/06/20 (Advent 2 of 4)

PAX Christian Church is a non-denominational church in the Carson Valley of western Nevada.


Philippians 4:4
Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!

Luke 1:14
He will be a joy and delight to you, and many will rejoice because of his birth,

Luke 1:46-55
And Mary said: “My soul glorifies the Lord and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior, for he has been mindful of the humble state of his servant. From now on all generations will call me blessed, for the Mighty One has done great things for me— holy is his name. His mercy extends to those who fear him, from generation to generation. He has performed mighty deeds with his arm; he has scattered those who are proud in their inmost thoughts. He has brought down rulers from their thrones but has lifted up the humble. He has filled the hungry with good things but has sent the rich away empty. He has helped his servant Israel, remembering to be merciful to Abraham and his descendants forever, just as he promised our ancestors.”

Luke 1:58
Her neighbors and relatives heard that the Lord had shown her great mercy, and they shared her joy.

Luke 2:10
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people.

Joy ≠ Happiness

John 16:33
“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

JOY comes when we focus on God.

JOY comes with Jesus.

JOY comes from the Holy Spirit.

JOY is meant to be shared.
