[Knowing Jesus, Knowing Joy Lesson Thirteen] Joy in Summary
“…And this is my prayer: that your love may abound more and more in knowledge and depth of insight, so that you may be able to discern what is best and may be pure and blameless until the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ—to the glory and praise of God…Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!” (Philippians 1:9-11; 4:4)
Day One Study
Take a few minutes and look back over the weeks of study through Philippians, starting with the Overview Lesson. Think about the following questions as you review both what you have studied and learned on your own, and as well as the insights you have gained from others.
1. What are one or two of the truths you know about Jesus, or about your relationship with Jesus, (especially after studying Philippians this semester) that bring joy to your heart?
2. What are one or two truths from Philippians that have encouraged you the most in your daily walk as a Christian?
3. If you were to choose one or two verses or passages from Philippians to commit to memory (if you haven’t done so already), what would those be, and why? Write those verses out in the space below.
Day Two Study
4. Use a creative medium (song, poem, drawing, craft, other) to illustrate what this study of Philippians has meant to you or added to your life.
