A Free 3-Week Study of Philippians
Released on November 2, 2020
Are you hopeless or discouraged by the hardship you are facing? Overwhelmed with sorrow and confusion about the unfair trial you are enduring? Sarah Koontz invites you to join us for “JoyFULL,” a free three-week study of Paul’s letter to the Philippians. In the book of Philippians, the Apostle Paul shares the secret of unshakeable peace and unfathomable joy in every circumstance. Hardship and suffering did not steal Paul’s joy because he was not looking to his circumstances for comfort, peace, and fulfillment—he was looking to Christ!
Biblical joy is a gift from God. It is the result of the gospel, produced by the Holy Spirit, and strengthened by studying God’s Word. In this manual for joyful living, we will uncover the secret of Christian joy—Christ’s joy in us forevermore. As we learn to search our difficult circumstances for eternal value, we will find the strength we need to rejoice always.
Unlike many other “free” online Bible studies, you do not need to purchase a companion book or additional resources to participate. All you need to complete our free Philippians study is 15-minutes per day, an internet connection, and an open heart.
This e-mail based Bible Study consists of fifteen lessons delivered over the course of three weeks and includes Scripture readings, devotionals, shareable graphics, and digital gifts from our Creative Partners. You will receive a welcome e-mail within fifteen minutes of registering and the first devotional will arrive in your inbox tomorrow morning.
Thanks to the generous donations of our Discipleship Team and our Support Team, this study is available for free to anyone who wishes to participate. Don’t forget to invite your friends to join us! Bible study is always more fun with friends.

Audio Version & Observation Worksheets Included!!
Our team is dedicated to creating resources that help you learn God’s Word in a way that works for you—whether you are a visual learner, a kinesthetic learner, or an auditory learner.
We are excited to announce that we have included an audio version of the daily devotionals in each JoyFULL Bible study e-mail—making it easier than ever to learn on-the-go.
All of the daily Mp3 audios are less than 10-minutes long and include both the Scripture reading and devotional.
We understand how busy life can be and are committed to creating free tools and resources to help you succeed at Bible Study.
The true student of the Word must learn to approach their Bible study time in a God-centered manner.
Instead of focusing on results, we need to focus on discerning the truth. Not desiring to find an answer for today’s problem, but instead desiring to find the One who is the solution for all of humanity’s problems.
When we take time to observe the biblical text, we discover that Bible study is not about us at all. It’s not about meeting our needs; it’s about meeting our God!
In order to help you strengthen your observation skills, we created detailed Observation Worksheets for each chapter of Philippians.
