Experiencing Jesus' Joy, by pastor, seminary teacher, and author Dr. James Joseph, invites readers to experience a God-fulfilled life that is full of joy and great inner peace. Many desire contentment in life through self-centered activities, but "true" contentment is found only in following the Lord Jesus and submitting to Him in "every" area of our lives. Experiencing the joy of the Lord is reserved for those who are willing to share and suffer for others, while putting aside selfish desires and ambitions and each picking up his or her cross to follow Jesus.
Dr. Joseph (Brother James) has written this book so that others may come to know their God-given purpose in life and experience more godly joy. As a pastor, Dr. Joseph is well aware of the most common dilemma facing many Christians: a lack of godly joy and the great love that they felt upon first receiving Christ into their lives. The author wants believers to know that they can come back to their first love. Godly love and joy can be re-kindled to burn brighter than ever before in the believers as the reader submits to the lordship of Jesus Christ and gains Jesus' passion to save all. Jesus wants all of His followers to experience the joy that He experiences as we carry the Ministry of Reconciliation to others in need of salvation.
Experiencing Jesus' Joy is a must read for every Christian, whether new or mature. This book will provide a deeper understanding of God's will for your life through sound biblical teaching. You will learn solid biblical truths that will both encourage and inspire you to step out in faith under Christ's leadership. Being a follower of Christ is "radically different" than living for yourself and your family. As one lives a committed life to Christ, one finds "true life", a life of great joy and inner peace helping many to know God. If you are serious about wanting a closer relationship with God and man, this is the last book that Satan would want you to read.
Dr. Joseph has a fervent passion for Christ and His Word. His main passion is to see the Body of Christ become more active turning our cites right-side-up through Christ's leadership. There is no greater mission for the Church than to bring as many as possible to a proper understanding of God, truth, and His goodness and Satan, his deceptions, and his destruction. Christ wants you to join Him bringing as many as possible away from Satan's control into God's marvelous presence.
