Joy~



Rejoice!
Philippians's~

Paul's letter of Joy! One of the simplest Epistles in the New Testament, containing only 104 verses~ Paul is writing the Philippians's to express his joy and to encourage them (us) to have Joy also! The words Joy and rejoicing are used 16 times in this letter and found in every Chapter! Christ is mentioned over 40 times! You can tell Paul loved them dearly~ It's the most positive of all Paul's letters, yet it was written while he was in prison~ It is very encouraging ~ reminding us Joy is possible in Christ...Joy in living~Joy in serving~Joy in sharing~Joy in resting~
A gem of Joy!

We will be using Kelly Bells studies this time with our women's group....she is so awesome!

We are really looking forward to this study~I need some joy don't you?
Rejoice! Have Joy!
Big hugs!
Pam
