Lesson 5 -- second quarter 2010
April 4, 2010
© Copyright 2010
Will I admit when I don't understand what Jesus says in His Word?
Am I willing to endure suffering in order to enjoy joy?
What will I ask of the Father in Jesus' name?
What does my joy meter read...and why?
At what do I grieve?
Would I know Jesus if I saw Him?
Not pleasure necessarily. Not fun necessarily. Not happiness necessarily.
Joy. Whatever all that is, I want it.
But so many things get in the way of it. So many things go wrong in life. So many problems. So many disappointments.
But I can ask for it. And receive it.
"Hitherto have ye asked nothing in my name: ask, and ye shall receive, that your joy may be full" (John 16:24).
When I pray about the things going wrong, He can give me joy.
When I pray regarding the problems and disappointments, He can give me joy.
When I pray for those whom I love, He can give me joy.
That's what I want; that's what I need.
This concludes my comments based on the passage for the International Bible Study. To read my comments on the alternate lesson developed by Christian Light Publications, click here: His Suffering and Glorified Son.
