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!

    The Source of Lasting Joy
    Series: Rejoice
    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.
