Advent 2018.jpg

It is entirely understandable that we experience sadness in a world that has yet to be released from sin and its bondage to decay. The Christmas season can be especially difficult for many people. However, Jesus said that in the midst of our sorrow we can know a joy that isn't dependent upon circumstance. In Signs of Joy (3 of 4), Pastor Kelly shares how we can know God's joy and why we should do things just because we enjoy them.

Living with Joy

Sermon Title:  Living with Joy
Scripture Reading:  Matthew 6:19-34; John 10:10; 15:9-12; Philippians 4:6-8

Jesus said that he came to give us abundant life. He wants his joy to be complete in us. But what does that mean and how does that happen? And if Jesus offers us his life, why do many Christians continually live with fear, anxiety, and depression, instead of living with joy? In Living with Joy, Pastor David shares how we must discipline ourselves to abide in Christ and seek his Kingdom before everything else.
