Transcript of "Vintage adventof jesusisjoy_12.22.13"

  1. 1. PIERRE TEILHARD de CHARDIN Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God. 
  2. 2. DIETRICH BONHOEFFER Music... (can) help dissolve your perplexities and purify your character and sensibilities, and in time of care and sorrow, will keep a fountain of joy alive in you.
  3. 3. DALLAS WILLARD We should, to begin with, think that God leads a very interesting life, and that He is full of joy… He is simply one great inexhaustible and eternal experience of all that is good and true and beautiful and right… This is His life.
  4. 4. DALLAS WILLARD To God there is available… “Towering clouds of gasses trillions of miles high, backlit by nuclear fires in newly forming stars, galaxies cart wheeling into collision and sending explosive shock waves boiling through millions of light years of time and space.”
  5. 5. DALLAS WILLARD These things are all before Him, along with numberless unfolding rosebuds, souls and songs – and immeasurably more of which we know NOTHING…
  6. 6. NEHEMIAH 8:10 …the joy of the LORD Is your strength.
  7. 7. LUKE 1:46b-47 And Mary said, “My soul magnifies the Lord, and my spirit rejoices in God my Savior…”
  8. 8. ECCLESIASTES 3:11 …He has put eternity into the heart of mankind…
  9. 9. C.S. LEWIS All joy emphasizes our pilgrim status; always reminds, beckons, awakens desire. Our best havings are wantings.
  10. 10. C.S. LEWIS What does not satisfy when we find it, was not the thing we were desiring.
  11. 11. C.S. LEWIS It would seem that Our Lord finds our desires not too strong, but too weak. We are half-hearted creatures, fooling about with drink and sex and ambition when infinite joy is offered us, like an ignorant child who wants to go on making mud pies in a slum because he cannot imagine what is meant by the offer of a holiday at the sea. We are far too easily pleased.
  12. 12. DAVID STEINDL-RAST The root of joy is gratefulness… It is not joy that makes us grateful; it is gratitude that makes us joyful.
  13. 13. JOHN CALVIN There is not one blade of grass, there is no color in this world, that is not intended to make us rejoice.
  14. 14. JAMES 1:17 Every good and perfect gift comes from above, coming down from the Father of lights who does not change like the shifting shadows.
  15. 15. HENRI NOUWEN Joy does not simply happen to us. We have to choose joy and keep on choosing it every day.
  16. 16. ANNE LAMOTT Peace is joy at rest, and joy is peace on its feet.
