Anxiety is everywhere, especially in 2020. How do you handle anxiety. Do you worry about your worrying? And do you feel that anxiety is something that you, as a Christian, should not experience because, after all, Jesus tells us that we ought not worry? What are we to do, then, when anxiety attacks?
In a sermon exceedingly relevant to today, Rev. Courtney Clayton Jenkins unwraps Jesus words in Matthew 6:25-34, where He instructs us to “not be anxious about your life, what you will eat or what you will drink, nor about your body, what you will put on.” How do we do that and live in in this anxiety-producing world? The Rev. Jenkins, one of the best preachers in America, has an answer that will inspire and edify you.
