Message: “The Lord Our Joy” from Jeff Lawrence

The Lord Our Joy

Laughter is essential to Christian faith. This week, we see the importance of celebrating the goodness God brings in our lives: “the Lord has done great things for us; we are glad.” These gospel memories strengthen us for tougher times that are sure to come, and they increase our faith in God’s promise that joy has the final word in our lives.

In contrast to our instant-everything world, spiritual growth is a slow, winding journey on the long road to a God-given destination. Christians often use the metaphor of a journey to describe what it’s like to move toward maturity in life with God. In ancient times, the people of God would literally travel together on the road to Jerusalem for worship. Since the city was at the highest elevation in the region, they ascended on this pilgrimage path. Along the way, they sang psalms which became known as the Songs of Ascent. Join us this summer as we travel through these ancient songs to find time-tested direction for our own journey with God and his people.
