How to Have Fulness of Joy
The shortest verse in the Bible is found in 1 Thessalonians 5:16, “Rejoice Evermore” The Bible does not tell us to rejoice in circumstances but the Bible says to rejoice in the Lord and because He never changes the Bible tells us to rejoice evermore. I want to talk to you today about how to have fullness of joy. Joy comes from the inside and God wants us to be a joyful people.

5 Minutes After You Die
The most amazing time you will ever spend is the first 5 minutes after you die. Man is the only creature that knows he is going to die and yet he continually ties to forget that fact. No man is truly ready to live until he is no longer afraid to die. The real issue is not death but rather what happens after you die. Listen as Jesus pulls back the curtain to look beyond.
