The Joy God Gives Is…

Galatians 5:22-25 (NASB)
22  But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness,
23  gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
24  Now those who belong to Christ Jesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desires.
25  If we live by the Spirit, let us also walk by the Spirit.

1.     Positional Not Situational

Philippians 3:1 (NASB)
1  Finally, my brethren, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things again is no trouble to me, and it is a safeguard for you.

2.     Continual Not Conditional

Philippians 4:4 (NASB)
4  Rejoice in the Lord always; again I will say, rejoice!

1 Thessalonians 5:16-18 (NASB)
16  Rejoice always;
17  pray without ceasing;
18  in everything give thanks; for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus.

3.     Paid For Not For Sale

Hebrews 12:2 (NASB)
2  fixing our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of faith, who for the joy set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and has sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

 Lords Supper:

1 Corinthians 11:23-28 (NASB)
23 For I received from the Lord that which I also delivered to you, that the Lord Jesus in the night in which He was betrayed took bread;
24 and when He had given thanks, He broke it and said, "This is My body, which is for you; do this in remembrance of Me."
25 In the same way He took the cup also after supper, saying, "This cup is the new covenant in My blood; do this, as often as you drink it, in remembrance of Me."
26 For as often as you eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the Lord's death until He comes.
27 Therefore whoever eats the bread or drinks the cup of the Lord in an unworthy manner, shall be guilty of the body and the blood of the Lord.
28 But a man must examine himself, and in so doing he is to eat of the bread and drink of the cup.
