Joy to the Max

today's reading.
Philippians 1:1-11    Paul and Timothy, servants of Christ Jesus, To all the saints in Christ Jesus who are at Philippi, with the overseers and deacons...
Philippians 1

think about it.
What does Paul cover in his prayer? How can this "remodel" your praying?

the blog.
Do you remember that children's song "I've Got the Joy, Joy, Joy Down in My Heart"? I used to love singing that song in Sunday School--but I didn't fully understand the "joy" part until years later when I finally got serious about seeking God in His Word.

For the next two weeks we'll be in Philippians here at P4 and on Back to the Bible as Dr. Kroll teaches us about "Discovering the Joy of the Journey." I hope you can join us for these studies because as the title suggests, it's all about joy--acquiring it, keeping it, spreading it, living it out…

So here we are at the beginning of Philippians, and one of the first things Paul mentions is his Christian friends bringing him joy. Would that be your experience as well? How have your friends brought you joy? What can you do to return the favor? Tami W.
