JOY SERMON OUTLINES

by Claude Thomas

Introduction: A parishioner's parting words to his pastor were penetrating and pertinent. He simply said, "Whatever you do, don't miss the joy!" That's a good word. Robert Louis Stevenson, at life's end, said, "To miss the joy is to miss everything!" What are we Christians going to say to that? Are we really supposed to experience joy? Sometimes it would appear…

Today we want to talk to you about the fullness of joy, how to have fullness of joy, a recipe for joy. And what is the recipe for joy? Alright, John chapter fifteen, John chapter fifteen and verse eleven. We've been just coming right through the gospel of John.

I have talked with you about the way to spell joy. We know the way you spell joy - J O Y - Jesus, first; others second; and yourself last. Today, I'm going to tell you about the mathematics of joy. Of all of the writings of the Apostle Paul, the book of Philippians is the most intimate and personal in nature. Actually, as we read these words, Paul is sharing from his…

We are thinking tonight about Sowing in Tears... Reaping in Joy. The Psalmist declares in Psalm 126.5-6, "Those who sow in tears shall reap in joy. He who continually goes forth weeping, bearing seed for sowing, shall doubtless come again with rejoicing, bringing his sheaves with him." Now concerning this matter of sowing of reaping... think with me for a few…

Jesus Christ spoke of His followers as being IN the world but not OF the world. JESUS CHRIST prayed, "Now I am no longer in the world, but these are IN the world... Holy Father, keep through Your name those whom You have given Me" (John 17:11). He then said, "They are not OF the world, just as I am not of the world" (John 17: 16). If you are a professing Christian…

How do you measure a church? A church is a spiritual and material entity whose mission is to love God, to love each other, to learn and obey the word of God, to commit our lives, our talents, our resources to the task of telling as many as we can about the love of God in Christ Jesus. It's hard to measure effectiveness in doing that. It's like looking at the railroad…

Today, friends, we are taking up "The Christian's Unfailing Joy." The joy filled life! Living life with joy! We see the exuberance of the early Christians in this Book of Acts and how they met all the trials and afflictions of this present world with an overflowing joy, and it thrills our hearts. No wonder everywhere they went people were won to them. It was because of their…

I recently heard about a very poor man who had always wanted to take a cruise. He saved the money to purchase this life long dream. Once aboard ship he was lost in a world that he did not understand. Especially this was true regarding meals for his journey. He brought along cheese and crackers to eat everyday while people all around him enjoyed the meals…

In Dangers, Toils & Snares, John Ortberg writes: When we take our children to the shrine of the Golden Arches, they always lust for the meal that comes with a cheap little prize, a combination christened, in a moment of marketing genius, the Happy Meal. You're not just buying fries, McNuggets, and a dinosaur stamp; you're buying happiness...

Today do you know that full joy that Jesus died and rose again to give everyone of us? He said "I came that you might have life, but that you might have it more abundantly." You know Jesus not only came to add years to our life but He came to add life to our years. He said, "...I spoken unto you, that my joy might remain in you, and that your joy might be full…
