Joy Identified posted by John Sorensen on Apr 04, 2019
What in your life are you most proud of?
Hi, I’m John Sorensen, President of Evangelism Explosion International for Share Life Today. Are you proud of your career? Education? Family name? Money? If your identity is found in anything other than what Jesus did for you on the cross, you’ve missed it! You’ll never truly experience joy if you rely on yourself or others to bring contentment. Sarah, who shared her testimony on whatsmystory.org, says she found her identity in her accomplishments and became very depressed when she failed to succeed. One day, she cried out and said, “Lord, dig me out of this hole I’m in!” She says she began a journey with the Lord, learning about His unconditional love and found that her need to be validated by anything outside of her relationship with Jesus kept getting smaller! Now she has peace and abundant life! Fix your gaze on Jesus Christ. Share with others how you can be confident because of His love, and you’ll be filled with joy and give others the opportunity to experience this joy as well.
