More Jesus Equals More Joy

Notes: More Jesus Equals More Joy
Pastor Jason Powell

John 3:30

John 3:30 NKJV
[30] He must increase, but I must decrease.

Every person of all time has desired to be happy.

Psalm 107:9 NKJV
[9] For He satisfies the longing soul, And fills the hungry soul with goodness.

God is your source for satisfaction.

1 Peter 1:8 NKJV
[8] whom having not seen you love. Though now you do not see Him, yet believing, you rejoice with joy inexpressible and full of glory,

When the root of your life is in Jesus then the fruit of your life is joy.

Faith will be replaced in Heaven with loving God face to face.

As a Christian you will always have a union with Jesus but you may not have communion with Him. We are the only ones who hold ourselves back from Jesus.

John 3:22-30 NKJV
[22] After these things Jesus and His disciples came into the land of Judea, and there He remained with them and baptized. [23] Now John also was baptizing in Aenon near Salim, because there was much water there. And they came and were baptized. [24] For John had not yet been thrown into prison. [25] Then there arose a dispute between some of John's disciples and the Jews about purification. [26] And they came to John and said to him, "Rabbi, He who was with you beyond the Jordan, to whom you have testified-behold, He is baptizing, and all are coming to Him!" [27] John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven. [28] You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, 'I am not the Christ,' but, 'I have been sent before Him.' [29] He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled. [30] He must increase, but I must decrease.

1. Jesus the giver.
John 3:27 NKJV
[27] John answered and said, "A man can receive nothing unless it has been given to him from heaven.

He has given us everything. 

Joy in Christ should not be lost when we experience bad things.

It's a small the to lose the gifts when you have the giver.

2. Jesus is the Christ 

John 3:28 NKJV
[28] You yourselves bear me witness, that I said, 'I am not the Christ,' but, 'I have been sent before Him.'

John 1:29 NKJV
[29] The next day John saw Jesus coming toward him, and said, "Behold! The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!

3. Jesus is the groom.

John 3:29 NKJV
[29] He who has the bride is the bridegroom; but the friend of the bridegroom, who stands and hears him, rejoices greatly because of the bridegroom's voice. Therefore this joy of mine is fulfilled.

Jesus provides our hearts needs. The groom is here.

John found joy that Jesus is here.

Jesus has come for you.

If you view Jesus as valuable, then give Him your time.

More Jesus equals more joy.
