Rejoice in the Lord always and Again I say Rejoice. 1/16/22

Weekly Memory Verse: "Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say rejoice. Let your reasonableness be known to everyone. The Lord is at hand." - Philippians 4:4-5

Sermon Scripture Reading: Philippians 4:4-9


Rejoice in the Lord

What will the church look like in 2022? This question is not really about me or you or a building; this question is about us - the church united in Christ, the church united to Christ. Regardless of what we encounter in 2022, may we be found to be a church united in Christ, rejoicing in the salvation we have in Christ Jesus our Lord.

Read Luke 10:17-37 (focusing your attention on Luke 10:17-24)

Take note of the difference between in what the 72 were rejoicing in (verse 17 & 20a) from what Jesus told them to rejoice in (verse 20b) and what He Himself rejoiced in(verses 21-22).
