The Possibility of Joy

May 5, 2019 |

Scripture: Philippians 1:12-26 | Series:

We tend to think about our emotional reactions to life as automatic and personal rather than something programmed and political. But our reactions to life are shaped, for better or worse, by a social order we participate in. The Gospel creates a social order where joy - even in the face of life-threatening circumstances - is possible in a way that no other political structure can. It does this by teaching us to recognize the meaning of history and redefine our notion of freedom.
