“Out of the believer’s heart shall flow rivers of living water.” – John 7:37-38
Authenticity, Love, Anger, Fear, Grief, Joy – emotions that are all very human and all very Jesus. This series affirms the role of human emotions and that Jesus – fully human as well as divine – indeed had emotions too.
As we conclude our series on the emotional life of Jesus, we conclude with the emotion of Joy. We will focus on the passage from Mark 10:13-16, in which Jesus invites noisy, sweet, messy, happy children to be blessed by him. We are not sure who is really blessing whom the most in this story! We will engage the ways in which Jesus’ humor is sometimes lost to us. We will appreciate how he expressed joy, how we can know true joy, and how joy can heal us.
