Finally, my brothers, rejoice in the Lord. To write the same things to you is no trouble to me and is safe for you. - Philippians 3:1 (ESV) When you consider fighting for joy there seems to be multiple things that collude to regularly defeat it. Circumstances collapse on us, squashing joy. Stress and anxiety assault us and joy seems to retreat in defeat. Busyness tells us we don't have time to think about joy. All of these must be addressed to find joy. Paul wants to consider something that will kill joy that we may not consider, and it seems that from his address in Philippians 3 it might be the chief enemy of joy. He confronts it boldly. He points us to a life-giving truth that fuels joy. Take a few minutes to read through the chapter. See if you see the dangerous joy killer and it's solution.
