Pastor Greg shares about the powerful spiritual force of God’s joy, the enduring quality that sustains us through difficult times. You will also want to listen to Pastor Carol’s encouragement for waiting. Waiting isn’t easy, but waiting on God always reveals desirable results. United States culture prefers instant gratification and we don’t happily embrace the idea of having to wait for things. There is so much God wants to do in us while we wait.

Jesus did not give up because of the cross; He endured the cross for the joy set before Him (Hebrews 12:2). “Keep your eyes on Jesus …. He never lost sight of where He was headed—He could put up with anything along the way: Cross, shame, whatever” (Hebrews 12:2 MSG). Joy empowered Christ to endure the cross. Jesus understood that the resurrection was on the other side of the cross. Recognition of God’s purpose brings joy.
