Welcome to this series of devotional posts based on ‘Roots & Wings’ an integrative Bible study for discipleship, written by Pastor Edmund Chan, our guest speaker at RISE, QB Convention 2015. Our thoughts will be based around five areas: our human weakness, the resulting problem, the radical re-orientation, the critical need, and the empowered life of Roots & Wings.
TOPIC: Biblical Empowering (Securing A Lifeline)
The Critical Need: Live a life of joy (Ps 100; James 1:2-4)
Happiness comes from happenings but joy is experienced when we recognise that Jesus is in control – whatever the circumstances. I don’t understand God’s actions but I know that nothing will ever happen to me without His knowledge and/or permission. Joy is living in the reality of knowing Jesus is still King. Worship!
