Jesus said, "These things have I spoken unto you, that my JOY might be in you and that your joy might be full" (John 15:11).
Notice these two phrases: 'My joy' and 'your joy.'
Whose joy is it? It's His joy! Joy is not something, it is someone. Joy is a fruit of the Holy Spirit in us. It's His joy is for every believer, not just for those with a certain personality type.
Last year during the onset of the pandemic, the Lord personally challenged Winnie and me to stay filled with His joy during this season and share it with others, for it is His joy that strengthens us and makes us bold and brave.
I want to personally invite you to join us for our 5-DAY COURAGEOUS JOY CHALLENGE - NOW EXTENDED. Joining us will be Bill Vanderbush, Preethy Kurian, Tracey Armstrong and more! Together we will learn how to dive into the heart of God, just like John the Beloved.
This past week, we've already been joined by our good friends Steve Backlund, Heidi Baker, Brian Simmons, Keith Ferrante and our GCSSM Millennial Joy tribe, and this next week is going to be powerful. Together we will unpack the revelation of what Christ did for us at the cross, for this is what launches us into His joy. When we truly get how loved we are and how free Christ made us, we experience His unshakeable, supernatural joy.
This is your time -- You were born for this!
While there's so much uncertainty in the world today, God is calling those who He will use in the next season. The end-time harvest is soon before us, and it will require the extravagant joy that fuels the courage of everyday believers with the divine strength to do the works of Jesus. Rather than looking for "superheroes," He is looking for everyday believers who are connected to Jesus, who, for the joy set ahead endured the cross. What was the joy set ahead? It was the joy of possessing you and me.
