Free to Be Content
In the final message of “True Freedom,” Pastor Dave Gustavsen talks about how we are “Free to Be Content.” Contentment does not come naturally – there is something in us that always wants more or different than what we have. We learn contentment through times in life when we feel discontent. Listen and discover more about the need for contentment, the beauty of contentment, and the secret of contentment.
Sometimes life feels like a prison. The prison walls might be physical sickness, family drama, economic hardship, or mistreatment by others. Over time, self-pity and victimization take hold of our hearts, and we feel trapped. But in his letter to the Philippians, Paul demonstrates a radically different mindset. Writing from a Roman prison cell, with every reason to feel trapped, Paul invites us to a kind of freedom that no chains can take away—a freedom found only through knowing and following Christ.
