Joy and Peace in Jesus, Mar. 18-24





John 16:16-33

Discussion Questions

  1. Have you ever experienced any trouble or difficulty because of your faith in Christ?
  2. Read John 16:15-22. What does Jesus mean by “in a little while?” Hint: there are two timeframes in view. Why is waiting so hard?
  3. What does Jesus say about grief and joy? What illustration does he use? How can lasting joy overcome brief joy?
  4. Read John 16:23-28. What does Jesus say about what the disciples ask? What does it mean to pray in Jesus’ name? How do those kinds of prayers lead to “complete joy?”
  5. What did the disciples believe about Jesus? How does verse 28 summarize the mission of Jesus, the Gospel message?
  6. Read John 16:33. How can we have peace and courage in a world full of trouble?
  7. What has the Spirit of God been saying to you in our study of John 1315? What are you taking away from this study? How will you be different?


Talk to the Father in Jesus’ name for complete joy

Serve Day
Come be part of this year’s 3e McKinney’s Serve Day on April 28. Over a thousand volunteers from CF and other 3e McKinney churches act as the “hands and feet” of Jesus. We want the residents to know that there is a God and He loves them. Join us as we serve others to enhance dignity and empower. Through projects like painting, light carpentry, repair work, cleaning, and hosting activities for kids, we get to demonstrate God’s love to McKinney. Please contact Alanda Maliskas at or 972-547-7034 for more information.

Following Christ
(Academy Course)

Many people identify themselves as Christian, but checking the box on a survey does not necessarily mean someone is a follower of Jesus. Have you investigated the claims of Jesus and experienced his grace? Come discover the foundations of the Christian life in a friendly environment. Bring your questions and we’ll dig into this life-changing story of grace together!
