"Lasting Happiness" - NT Packet 3.12 (Download)
This packet is included in New Testament Bundle 3
FREE Download:Page 31 of Come Follow Me for Individuals and Families states that Jesus Christ came to teach the way to lasting happiness. Life can be crazy, hard, disappointing and also wonderful! How then are we to feel happiness and joy through all the ups and downs? We here at GospelHomeStudyPackets.com love the analogy of our beautiful earth. On the surface, things may be crazy with exploding volcanoes, exciting with beautiful waterfalls, dry like the desert or difficult, like a cold wintery tundra. However, through it all is a steady, powerful core. Our core is Jesus Christ. Our joy, calmness, surety is knowing of His saving grace, and trusting in His plan. Christ is at the center of our core. He brings us lasting happiness, peace and joy no matter what is going on at the surface of our lives.
Tip: Take the analogy further. The core of our earth is iron. What can we relate that to as far as our own personal core is concerned. (Hint: The iron rod is the word of God) Also the core of our earth provides gravity, it keeps things steady on earth. How does this apply to the Laws of God (commandments) that help keep us steady. Finally, the core of our earth is magnetic. Magnetic north helps us find our way home (compasses.) What invisible power do we have to guide us and to help us find out way home?
