Transcript of Joy Complete

Joy Complete
Joy's Center
"'Rabbi, that man who was with you on the other side of the Jordan--the one you testified about-- well, he is baptizing, and everyone is going to him.' To this John replied, 'A man can receive only what is given him from heaven. You yourselves can testify that I said, 'I am not the Christ but am sent ahead of him.' The bride belongs to the bridegroom. The friend who attends the bridegroom waits and listens for him, and is full of joy when he hears the bridegroom's voice. That joy is mine, and it is now complete. He must become greater; I must become less."
John 3:26-30

Adam & Eve
Is Christ Your Joy?
"'Truly, truly, I say to you, when you were younger, you used to gird yourself and walk wherever you wished; but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and someone else will gird you, and bring you where you do not wish to go.' Now this He said, signifying by what kind of death he would glorify God. And when He had spoken this, He said to him, 'Follow Me!' Peter, turning around, saw the disciple whom Jesus loved following them…. So Peter seeing him said to Jesus, 'Lord, and what about this man?' Jesus said to him, 'If I want him to remain until I come, what is that to you? You follow Me!'"
John 21:18-22
"'You will not surely die,' the serpent said to the woman. 'For God knows that when you eat of it your eyes will be opened, and you will be like God, knowing good and evil.'"
Genesis 3:4-5
Joseph & Brothers
"A young man ran and told Moses, 'Eldad and Medad are prophesying in the camp.' Joshua son of Nun, who had been Moses' aide since youth, spoke up and said, 'Moses, my lord, stop them!' But Moses replied, 'Are you jealous for my sake? I wish that all the LORD's people were prophets and that the LORD would put his Spirit on them!'"
Numbers 11:27-29
Joshua & Elders
Saul & David
"After David had finished talking with Saul, Jonathan became one in spirit with David, and he loved him as himself. From that day Saul kept David with him and did not let him return to his father's house."
1 Samuel 18:1-2
"When the men were returning home after David had killed the Philistine, the women came out from all the towns of Israel to meet King Saul with singing and dancing, with joyful songs and with tambourines and lutes. As they danced, they sang: 'Saul has slain his thousands, and David his tens of thousands.' Saul was very angry; this refrain galled him. 'They have credited David with tens of thousands,' he thought, but me with only thousands. What more can he get but the kingdom?'
And from that time on Saul kept a jealous eye on David."
1 Samuel 18:6-9
(emphasis added)
"When Saul realized that the LORD was with David and that his daughter Michal loved David, Saul became still more afraid of him, and he remained his enemy the rest of his days."
1 Samuel 18:28-29
"'My father Saul will not lay a hand on you. You will be king over Israel, and I will be second to you. Even my father Saul knows this.' The two of them made a covenant before the LORD."
1 Samuel 23:17-18
"When the second child sees the first child playing, he doesn’t mainly want the toy.
He wants the experience of joy that the first child is experiencing.
If the first child gave up the black horse and began to play happily with the brown cow, the second child would now crave the brown cow. Which is why the envious are so unhappy. The harder they try to compete and the more deeply they lust for the happiness of another, the more it eludes them."
Joe Rigney
(emphasis added)
"So then, no more boasting about men! All things are yours, whether Paul or Apollos or Cephas or the world or life or death or the present or the future-- all are yours, and you are of Christ, and Christ is of God."
1 Corinthians 3:21-23
"What do you have that you did not receive?"
1 Corinthians 4:7
"Concerning this I implored the Lord three times that it might leave me. And He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong."
2 Corinthians 12:8-10
"Humility is fundamentally a form of self-forgetfulness as opposed to pride’s self-fixation."
