Experience the Joy — Then Share It

Experience the Joy — Then Share It is a three part retreat or Bible study focusing on the joy we find through Christ’s forgiveness and also the comfort and protection we receive from God our Father. Our joy can then be intentionally shared as we serve God through witnessing to others about His goodness.

Joy is an important concept in the Bible. The words joy, joyful, and rejoice appear many times. No synonym for joy expresses the joy we have as Christians! Words like happy and glad do not express quite the same feeling as joy. The word joy is important, because joy plays a major role in our lives as Christians. Our theme verse says, Rejoice always (1 Thessalonians 5:16). But is that possible? We will explore this as we study Experience the Joy – Then Share It.

A video-based Bible study from Donna Snow in partnership with Lutheran Women in Mission 

At some point, our life is shaken by suffering, heartache, or loss. Donna Snow's video Bible study, UNSHAKABLE, looks at eight remarkable men and women from the Bible that God shook to the core and then used them to point people to the hope of salvation. Somewhere in this cast of characters you will find yourself. The Lord provides that same strength and grace to us today. 

Therefore let us be grateful for receiving a kingdom that cannot be shaken,
and thus let us offer to God acceptable worship, with reverence and awe,
for our God is a consuming fire (Hebrews 12:28–29).

The UNSHAKABLE DVD and study guide workbook are available for purchase online.

With grants from several districts, and in cooperation with the WORDrus Mission Society, eight multi-session Bible studies are now available to missionaries and individuals as free downloads. The Bible studies have been doctrinally reviewed and are accurate translations that convey Lutheran biblical teaching and doctrine.
