Joy Through Transition

Pastor Jeremy D. Battle

In this message from Matthew 6:25-34, 9:36-38, and 10:9-13 titled “Joy Through Transition,” Pastor Battle emphasizes that even though life is filled with swift transitions (including those we don’t sign up for), it is still possible for us to maintain our joy. As we consider the disciples’ experience with Jesus, we see how we can keep our joy even as Jesus takes us through seasons of preparation. More specifically, if we are going to remain joyful through transitions, we must learn not to worry for nothing is too hard for God and God has our back (Matthew 6), allow God to lead us through a season of preparation and prayer (Matthew 9), and learn to manage our peace by making intentional efforts to seek and ask God for joy (Matthew 10).
