Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

December 21, 2010 (experience the joy)

Bringing joy to others can involve
hard work under harsh conditions,
but bringing joy to others
always returns joy to the giver.

“To get joy, we must give it,
and to keep joy, we must scatter it.”
- John Templeton

"Joy is not in things, it is in us."
- Richard Wagner

“God's complete joy in Himself as a Trinity
led Him to want to double that joy
by extending it beyond Himself
to the human beings He created.
Likewise, we will want to double our joy
by seeing how adequate God is
to meet our need-love
as we use our resources
to perform the greatest service to others -
helping them to experience the joy
in believing in God's wonderful promises,
guaranteed by the finished work of Christ.”
- Daniel Fuller
