I need to begin with an apology. You will hear me make references to a sermon, “Rejoice in the Lord”, which wasn’t recorded due to technical difficulties. One of the references I made was that God is calling us to have joy in our lives. When he declares that we are to “Rejoice in the Lord” (Philippians 3:1), he gives it as a command. He makes the same declaration in chapter 4:4 emphasizing that we do it “ALWAYS”. Rejoicing in the Lord always may seem like an impossibility but Paul says to do it anyway. He will go on in chapter 4 and give us some really cool tools to help maintain our joy.
