Book of Philippians: Finding Joy in the Midst of Trials (Ps Benny Ho Seminars)

Ps Benny will start the Year 2008 teaching on "Book of Philippians: Finding JOY in the Midst of Trials". This Seminar is conducted over two months. PART1 will be taught in Feb08 and PART2 will be taught in Mar08. Below are the details for the up coming seminar in Feb08:

Book of PHILIPPIANS: PART 1 -> JOY in the midst of Trials

Happiness depends on happenings; but JOY depends on CHRIST. The word HAPPINESS evokes visions of unwrapping gifts on Christmas morning, strolling hand in hand with the one you love, being surprised on your birthday etc. Everyone wants to be happy; we making chasing this elusive idea a lifelong pursuit; spending money, collecting things, and searching for new experiences.

But if happiness depends on our circumstances, what happens when the toys rust, loved one die, health deteriorates and party is over? Often happiness flees and despair sets in. In contrast to happiness stands JOY. Running deeper and stronger, joy is the quiet, confident assurance of God's love and work in our lives - that He is there for us no matter what!

The Epistle to the Philippians was written to the first church planted in Europe. Although it was written out of a time of trial, it is a book that resonated with the JOY of the LORD... It is an Epistle that inspires us to focus our thoughts and actions on Jesus Christ. When adverse circumstances, disunity, the quest for accomplishments, or anxiety threaten our joy, this letter provides a powerful tool that can help us fix our vision on Jesus. Only by discovering Him first will we discover the peace and contentment that come from God

A study of this book will reveal the secrets of a joy-filled life. An immensely practical study, coverage includes:

*Christian Perspective to Suffering
*Christian Character & Conduct
*Staying Free from Legalism
*Running The Race to Win
*Winning Over Worry and Anxiety
*Walking in The Abundance of God and more....
