Are we living on substitutes for joy?

Father and son walk into sunset on railtrack

Looking at Acts 16, Alan Welsh challenges us to seek God’s joy, and to understand this does not mean an end to pain or suffering, but joy in God is in spite of suffering.

Peace with God

Continuing his series on the different things God has done for us, Alan Welsh teaches this morning on Peace with god.

Readings from John 14 v 27 on and also from John 20 v 19 on.

Alan also shared the story of how Joseph Scriven came to write the poem: What a friend we have in Jesus, to which music was added giving us the hymn we still sing today. You can read here about Joseph’s story.

What a friend we have in Jesus,
All our sins and griefs to bear!
What a privilege to carry
Everything to God in prayer!
Oh, what peace we often forfeit,
Oh, what needless pain we bear,
All because we do not carry
Everything to God in prayer!

Have we trials and temptations?
Is there trouble anywhere?
We should never be discouraged—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Can we find a friend so faithful,
Who will all our sorrows share?
Jesus knows our every weakness;
Take it to the Lord in prayer.

Are we weak and heavy-laden,
Cumbered with a load of care?
Precious Savior, still our refuge—
Take it to the Lord in prayer.
Do thy friends despise, forsake thee?
Take it to the Lord in prayer!
In His arms He’ll take and shield thee,
Thou wilt find a solace there.
