Psalm 71:23: My lips will shout for joy when I sing praise to you— I whom you have delivered.
Finding Joy in Christ
Watch this video. Matt Chandler talks about his journey of sanctification. Sanctification means to be set apart for a holy use. In other words, what does it look like to become closer to God, more bound together with Him?
The answer, according to Chandler, for him has been to pursue things that give him joy in Christ. Conversely we should avoid things, even good things, that can be a distraction from the joy we have in our savior. If they’re not kept in their proper place there are lots of things that can slip in and take the place of Christ in our lives and become idols. He wants to be the thing we’re most stoked on.
What are you most stoked on?
What are some things that you do that help you experience joy in Christ?
Are there any things in your life that might need to take back seat for a while as you pursue Jesus?
