Week 5: Experiencing the Joy of Jesus
Lesson Emphasis: Sacred Delight (Day 1)
Reading Assignment: John 15
Meditate and Memorize: John 15:11
Knowing and Feeling (Words from Max): “What is sacred delight? It is…an inner exuberance that comes from God.”
The Heart…Matters (Lesson Summary): In order to experience the joy of Jesus, we must know Him. We must know Him so intimately that we understand what and/or who brings His heart joy. Experiencing Him in this way affords us with the blessed chance to delight in what He delights in. It allows us to appreciate what He holds as sacred. It grants us the ability to comprehend that which He views as holy. Only then can we fully grasp and experience the unwavering, exuberant joy of Christ.
Question: How would you define inner exuberance [that comes from God]?
Challenge: Select seven people from your circle of influence. Send a text message, email, card, or letter to one person per day. In your communication, make sure to refer to Psalm 126:3.
