The Secret of Joy | 1 John 1:1-10 | Pastor Rick Brown

1 year ago

What is the secret of joy?

Maybe you’re not very happy today and certainly aren’t joyful. Maybe you’re facing hard times. Or maybe things are going wonderful, and you don’t know why you’re so miserable. Choose to seek God in them all. Joy is something God can restore.

Don't miss this opportunity to listen in, friends. I know you'll be encouraged! Please share this today!

Let’s open the Bible to 1 John 1:1–10 with Rick Brown to dig into three truths that can help you walk in joy. God can cause our hearts to be joyful even if things on the outside are falling apart. We have a God who loves us more than we can imagine and promises to help us if we put our trust in Him.

You will show me the path of life; In Your presence is fullness of joy; at Your right hand are pleasures forevermore. Psalm 16:11
