Wondering how to be content in a world always pushing us to want and do more?
In a sermon series recently preached at my church called “The Art of Contentment”, Pastor Colin Smith tackles the tough and often-subtle issue of contentment. This series convicted me of my own discontent and pointed me to the sufficiency of Christ.
If you struggle with anxiety, anger, or frustration, let the gospel truth in these sermons drive you to peace, trust, and satisfaction in Christ.
Anxiety, at its root, is anticipating a problem without realizing the strength that Christ will give you to meet it.

Peace in life comes from knowing that everything that concerns you is in the hands of the Savior who loves you.

It is easier to be content when you have less, and harder to be content when you have more.
