Christ Our Treasure: Past, Present and Future Joy

The third message in our series The Pursuit of Joy. The Christian faith provides rich resources for a life of deep joy, resources that are unparalleled in other faith systems and philosophies.

We see in this letter that the Apostle Paul wrote from prison, he has great joy despite his circumstances. Is such joy available to us today, and if so, how do we access it?

Bible text: Philippians 1:12-26

Main points in the sermon: When Christ is our highest treasure, we can have:

  • Joy in past trials
  • Joy in present hardships
  • Joy in future uncertainty
  • And ask how we can attain this kind of joy
