August 9, 2015 – Philippians, part 1 – Joy

Preached by Rod Benner (00:35)

Rod begins a new series on the book or epistle of Philippians.

Philippians was written by the Apostle Paul and is called by some the epistle of joy.  He wrote this letter to the church at Philippi while his was in a Roman prison.  In unhappy circumstances, Paul found joy and found enough of it that he could pass some out to us. The joy Paul found was a result of the peace he found in Jesus.  Peace and joy go hand in hand and you can’t fully get one without the other.  Jesus never said “I’ll help you escape reality”.  Rather, he told us to trust in him and he will help you through reality.
