Matthew 9:35-10:1, 5a


  1. A compassion for people


And Jesus went throughout all the cities and villages, teaching in their synagogues and proclaiming the gospel of the kingdom and healing every disease and every affliction. 36 When he saw the crowds, he had compassion for them, because they were harassed and helpless, like sheep without a shepherd (9:35-36).


  1. A command to pray


Then he said to his disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few; therefore pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest” (9:37-38).


  1. A calling to participate


And he called to him his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast them out, and to heal every disease and every affliction. . . . These twelve Jesus sent out (10:1, 5a).

Baton Rouge is a city known for its joy and exuberance.  There’s not much that’s better than a crawfish boil, a tailgating party, or Saturday night in Death Valley. 


But is recent days that joy has been turned into sorrow.  Death has stalked our streets.  Laughter and camaraderie has become tears and division.  Instead of parties there have been funerals.  Is there a place for sorrow?  How ought we to deal with sorrow?


Sunday’s message will seek to answer those questions.  Jesus will be our example as he shows us how to live emotionally healthy lives even when sorrow comes knocking.


Thankful to know that “weeping may endure for the night, but joy comes in the morning,”



Isaiah 53:3-6


  1. Jesus carried our sorrows




  1. Jesus confronted our sorrows




  1. Jesus conquered our sorrows
