This week, Michelle Reyes, (in)courage contributor, joins the show to share her own story of joy found in community. Our hosts Becky Keife and Mary Carver discuss how we can find so much joy in community and how, in order to truly love God and love others, we must value every believer by embracing and celebrating what makes us unique.
We take a look at how harmony within the Church can affect our ability to experience and express joy and address how division and favoritism prevents us from experiencing joy in community and even goes against how we’re instructed to live (James 2:1-10). We also touch on several psalms that make it clear God wants us to rejoice together, including:
Like we always do, this episode ends with a Bible verse for the week. This week, it’s John 16:22:
Rejoice with those who rejoice; weep with those who weep. Live in harmony with one another.
