Does your congregation understand that being joyful is a biblical command? While in prison and not knowing his destiny, the Apostle Paul encouraged the troubled church at Philippi to stay faithful to their mission, to keep their focus on Christ, and to do so with joy. Come be inspired to “press on” as Paul did in difficult times both in his personal life and in the life of the church. Grow closer to Jesus and lead your flock to be more faithful in this topsy-turvy world.
