Discovering Relational Joy
Sue Edwards has taken the book of Philippians and put it under the microscope of bible study. This particular focus on Philippians shows the joy behind Paul’s partnership with this specific church.
The Philippian church was earthly poor, but eternally rich and yet because of the power of the Gospel and their love for Paul’s mission, they gave to Paul despite their lacking financially. Sue Edwards goes through this book in it’s entirety and peels back the layers of joy that Paul had for these people and vice-versa.
If you are looking for a bible study that emphasizes gospel community and unity that is inspired by the good news of Jesus Christ, then this might be your ticket to relational joy. The bible study is designed for small groups but individuals could thrive under this study as well. But since the theme has to do with relationships, it might be best to get in a consistent small group and come together to discover joy in the group.
The format is for daily study that allows you to dig as deep as you’d like in your group or by yourself. Feel free to check out this resource as you develop community with other people and/or build on the community you already share.
