THE JOY OF OBEDIENCE Philippians 2:12-18 Print this Bible Study
** As our study together last week came to an end, we asked the Lord to help us find "The Joy of Humility" by following the example set for us by Jesus. How did your week go? Even though I know this is hard to answer, did others have the opportunity to see Christ in you because you had gone through a type of kenosis in your daily walk with Him?
** As children of God we are different than the world, but what is it about the Christian life that produces the most joy? Even during times of great testing or distress what causes our heart to leap with joy?
