Route 66: The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible

Philippians: Choose Joy, Part 1

From the series “Route 66: The Ultimate Road Trip Through the Bible”

“Rejoice in the Lord always. Again I say rejoice.” Well, when the Apostle Paul wrote those words to the Philippian church, he was under house arrest in Rome. What he wanted the church to understand, what God wants you and me to understand, is that the joy of the Lord is not circumstantial, its intentional. It’s a choice we have the power to make no matter how we feel or what we may be going through.  

“Every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.”

Romans 8:28 MSG
