Do Whatever He Tells You: Week 11

John 16:16-33

Today, Pastor Jason led us through John 16:16:33. Let’s not forget that these are Jesus’ final words and instructions to His disciples, and we know that “last words” carry a weight with them. Jesus is making sure His disciples see the condition of their hearts as He is speaking to them about what is most important.

Joy is found in the same story as our sorrow

Joy is found in through abiding in Christ

Joy is found in the victory of Christ

If you are a follower of Jesus Christ, the worst-case scenario for your life has already happened. You will not have to pay the price for your sin through a separation from the Father. Be encouraged and trust the Author who is writing the long story of your life. In Jesus, there is a happily ever after because we will be in a forever relationship with Him.

Questions to consider:

  1. How have you seen God bring joy out of your sorrow?
  2. Wh was the sorrow the disciples felt just for “a little while”? How is that true for us today?
  3. How does prayer deepen our sense of joy in the presence of God?
  4. What is the biggest challenge to your joy in Christ? How will you face that challenge with hope in the gospel?
