➤ A United Purpose —Many Christians are go-it-aloners. Being deliberately untied instead of united deprives one of the joy of fellowship in common purpose.
➤ Strong Spiritual Growth —There is a link between joy and spiritual growth. Paul says, "I shall remain with you and continue with you all for your progress and joy of faith" (Philippians 1:25).
➤ Praiseworthy Conduct —Our conduct must fit our faith in Christ's sacrifice for our sins, and fit our purpose which is to bring praise and glory to God.
➤ Generous Sharing —Giving and receiving are the cause of joy —especially the giving. Jesus once said, "It is more blessed to give than to receive" (Acts 20:35).
➤ A Humble Attitude —Humility, meekness, and lowliness are often associated with feebleness and insipidness. But if meekness is weakness, then Jesus was weak, for he was certainly meek and lowly.
➤ An Eager Hope —A hope of Heaven is not irrelevant to our life on earth, rather heavenly hope makes earthly life worthwhile.
➤ A Christ-like Love —Paul did not love with a love of his own. He loved with the affection of Christ. To love as Christ loved, is to truly love.
➤ Self-confidence in Christ —We all know that confidence is important to our wellbeing. The Christian's confidence is based in the Lord.
➤ How to be Truly Happy —This series of lessons will reveal the secrets of achieving true happiness in life. Some of these secrets are surprising and they are things that worldly people may not evaluate as ways to be happy.
➤ I Can! (Philippians) —Paul’s letter to the Philippians is full of encouragement. The theme is, “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” Series of lessons including two quiz pages.
