Sorrow Turned to Joy
Bible Text: John 16:16-33 | Speaker: Gary DeSalvo | Series: Come & See
#33 in the series Come & See.
Sorrow…we have all experienced sorrow at some time. It may be sorrow that comes from death, disappointment, divorce, disease or disaster. The disciples have been told that Jesus is leaving them and will die…that Peter would deny Him…that Judas would betray Him…that they would be persecuted, kicked out of the synagogue and eventually be martyred! How does anyone experience joy when they hear this kind of news? How do we experience joy when circumstances are bleak?
