Jack and Keiko share about being content in everyday life.
Christmas is a time to rejoice, because it is a time to remember the wonderful salvation that God has prepared for us in His Son, Jesus. We live in a troubled world, but we have joy when we remember the proclamation of the coming of Jesus. (Note: the PDF file is Japanese.
If you believe in Jesus, you are a child of the resurrection and have eternal life of unending joy and fellowship.
Trusting Jesus and putting Him first and considering others before ourselves is the key to having joy in our lives.
Contentment is not something that comes naturally; we don’t “do” something to be content. We must “learn” some things in order to be content.
Happy Easter! The resurrection of Christ gives us the sure hope of resurrection, a living hope that helps us to overcome every trial with great joy.
We all face death sooner or later, but if we have placed our faith in Jesus, we can face it with peace and joy, knowing that there is a welcome waiting for us in heaven.
For the Christian, what is important is that we walk with Jesus our Lord and that we are assured of a joyous homecoming to heaven when we leave this world.
互いに相手を受け入れなさい。 The church of our Lord Jesus Christ is divided in many ways, but we should all look for and rejoice in even small steps toward unity.
喜びを得る: It has been said that happiness depends on what happens to you. But joy does not depend on what happens to you; instead, it depends on the condition of your heart and on your choice of attitude.
Let’s let Christ’s love motivate us to love other Christians the way Paul loved the church at Philippi. We are all part of God’s family and we should all be transformed by God’s love.
We see that Paul had much success promoting the Gospel while inside the prison walls or better yet, in his cottage. But how about the impact he had in the church, in the city of Rome?
Paul says whether from false motives or true, Christ is
preached, and because of this I rejoice, yes, I will continue to rejoice.
Rejoice in the Lord is another way of saying I am a Christian. It serves as a summary of true Christianity. It means the Lord Jesus Christ is everything to me.
We easily could call this message “the joy of giving to God”. Within this passage we find perhaps the greatest promise in the Bible.
