New Testament Lesson: Acts 11:1-18 (Peter explains his actions)
Gospel Lesson: John 16: 12-22 (The Disciples’ grief will turn to joy)
Christians have joy. It is a “Resurrection Reality,” the result of our fellowship with Jesus. The Bible commands us to rejoice. The Apostle Paul writes, “Rejoice in the Lord always, and again I say, ‘Rejoice!’” In the midst of this world we may experience sadness, disappointment, and discouragement, yet, because of our fellowship with the risen Christ, we have joy. So, regardless of your circumstances, because you have Jesus, you can choose JOY!
