Good Medicine | Felixitup | Matt Holtzman

Good Medicine | Felixitup | Matt Holtzman

Nov 14, 2021

Passage: John 16:19-24

Preacher: Matt Holtzman

Series: Good Medicine

Category: New Testament



'But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law.' (Galatians 5:22–23) Joy. “Joy is the serious business of heaven,” said C. S. Lewis. Joy isn’t just a balloon floating by in the sky. Joy is a fight with powers of evil and hopelessness. Jesus is serious about our roots of joy, knowing that His sacrifice connects us with a root of joy that nothing can rip out or take away. Your joy will be complete. Side effects may include laughter, elevated heart rate, smile lines, resilience and hopefulness.


We’re grateful for good medicine for the body. Good medicine for the soul is the fruit of the Spirit found in Galatians 5. Drug companies are running out of names to use, but let’s name three new medicines for the soul: Morapax, Amoritanz and Felixitup. The benefits outweigh the side effects, and I think your prescription costs will be covered.
