Romans 14 promises that the kingdom of God is “righteousness, peace, and joy in the Holy Spirit.” How do we live in joy? For Jesus was the most joyful person on the planet! Murray Smith breaks down the narrative when Paul and Silas worshipped in prison to give us practical keys of how to live a lifestyle of rejoicing, thanksgiving, and to worship into our breakthrough. When we choose joy—even in trials and tribulations—is what defines our greatness in God. This teaching will challenge us to rejoice always—even in challenges, so we can all be like Jesus who was “anointed with joy above all of His companions.”
Murray and Ash moved to Raleigh in August 2009 from Sydney, Australia, with their 4 gorgeous globe-trotting daughters and their dog. And yes, one of them does bear a striking resemblance to someone else on the team! They have a passion for the church and they love seeing people of all ages walk in their identity, calling and destiny in Jesus. Murray is the lead pastor. Together, he and Ash lead the church, modeling how to live out of joy. Prior to moving to Raleigh Murray spent 14 years working for KPMG, a global accounting and advisory firm.
