Clarus ’14 Recap and Resources for Wrestling with Contentment

2014 | by Trent Hunter | Category: Clarus 14

If you are discontent, then you need this post. If you are perfectly content, then you need it too.

The good news of the gospel is that Jesus came to die for our sins of discontent. But he also came with thirst-quenching living water. He came to satisfy us with the bread of heaven—that is, himself. He promises that one day he will satisfy us completely in a whole new creation. Rick Phillips and Thabiti Anyabwile recently joined us to address the theme of contentment in the Christian life at Clarus ’14.
