Rejoice in Christ-Sufficiency
Series: Rejoice
When self-sufficiency is the real desire of our hearts, two things will happen: (1) We will never know true contentment. (2) We will inevitably worship and live for something else other than God. Self-sufficiency is an illusion. Christ-sufficiency is the key! That is true freedom! That is true contentment! That is true joy!

    One of the fruits of joy in Christ is doing the right even when it’s hard and even when no one else is. It often means stopping the self-justification, admitting we were wrong, changing what we think and how we think, and living as the redeemed people in Jesus that we now are.

    The Source of Lasting Joy

    Joy doesn't come our way because we work hard and earn it or because we have enough merit to deserve it. It's a gift from God that we receive when we realize what we have received in Jesus, instead of what we deserved.

    It is Finished
    We are not in control of our futures. And our losses still hurt. That will never change. But the thing that matters most in all of eternity is secure and none of our losses can compare to that. That is redemption in Jesus to all who would receive it and follow after Him.
