I just watched this sermon given by Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church. He really hit the nail on the head for me with his thoughts on Joy. I went searching for this sermon after I realized it was pastor Mark speaking in the background of a song I’ve been listening to for years now. I’m so glad I did because he said some things I really needed to hear.
Part 1: The Rebel’s Guide to Joy
Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing
I’m posting this since they didn’t play the whole song in the sermon video and this is a better quality version. I especially love these lyrics: O to grace how great a debtor, daily I’m constrained to be! Let thy goodness, like a fetter, bind my wandering heart to thee. Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it, prone to leave the God I love; here’s my heart, O take and seal it, seal it for thy courts above.
This is the song where I first heard the sermon clip. I love some Lecrae!
