Run with Joy // Paul

Open your Bibles to Acts chapter 20 and read verse 24 together.

A man once called Saul was transformed to a new man named Paul. He purposed to share the gospel to everyone and anyone no matter the consequence he would face from it. Paul was beaten, stoned, jailed and thrown out of cities. BUT Paul chose to Run with Joy because he did it all to share Jesus with everyone that he met!

Discuss the following questions together:

1. How is Joy different from happiness?                                        

2. Why do you think Paul continued to share the gospel even though he knew he was going to face physical persecution?                          

3. What are practical ways to be purposed to Run with Joy while we follow Jesus?

Practical: Go around the table and share your testimony of faith in Jesus Christ and how He has faithfully transformed your life!
