"Joy Unspeakable" From 1 Peter 1:8 Is Topic for Advent Service Wednesday,
Dec. 14 @ 6 pm By Certified Lay Speaker Joe Dan Boyd
Not only will Joe Dan proclaim the Scripture:
"...rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory:"--KJV
But he will also perform excerpts from two related hymns, accompanying himself on ukulele and banjo:
Give The World A Smile
explaining and demonstrating their relationship to the overall topic title.
1Pe 1:8 whom not having seen ye love; on whom, though now ye see him not, yet believing, ye rejoice greatly with joy unspeakable and full of glory:
"rejoice with joy unspeakable and full of glory; with a joy in believing on him, which is better experienced than expressed; a joy that not only strangers intermeddle not with, know nothing of, which entirely passes their understanding, but is such as saints themselves cannot speak out, or give a full and distinct account of; they want words to express it, and convey proper ideas of it to others:
and it is a joy that is glorious; there is a rejoicing that is evil and scandalous; but this is honourable, and of which none need be ashamed; it is solid and substantial, and the matter of it always abiding, when the joy of the hypocrite is but for a moment;
it is a joy on account of the glory of God, which the believer lives in the hope and faith of; and it is a beginning, a presage and pledge of it; it is a glory begun here; it is the firstfruits, and a part also of it; and by it saints may know a little what heaven itself will be." --Commentator John Gill
All are invited to this Advent Service:
Wednesday, December 14, 6 pm, Tinney Chapel UMC sanctuary.
