We look at some enemies of joy (reasons so many people have no joy) an example of joy (Jesus as He went to the cross) and close with suggestions for having joy in your life (have a relationship with Jesus, give yourself sacrificially in service to other people, and focus daily on the eternal and not the temporary).
This seven-weekend series will focus on Galatians 5:22 – 23: The Holy Spirit produces this kind of fruit in our lives: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
gentleness, and self-control. There is no law against these things!
For seven weekends we will deal with areas of our lives that deserve a little extra attention. This series will focus on how Jesus can change us. We will discover certain personality traits every Christian should to try to have. The Christian must develop that desire to change. It’s not merely sitting back and saying, “Holy Spirit change me.” It means we get involved and we say, “God, You’ve got to change me and I want to change.”
