Jeff talks about how society focuses so much on success that it becomes our identity, but that's not what Jesus wants for us. No matter where we are in our journey, God values fruit, even the baby fruit that we tend to dismiss.
Jeff preaches on love, lust, and sex. Love is a selfless practice, choosing what is best for another. Lust selfishly looks to the self. It grips our heart and does not let go. Sex is a gift from God that can be an act of lust as well as love, even within a marriage. Wherever we are or have been with lust, God will forgive us, transform our shame, and move us to love.
Bristow shows us that happiness comes from our circumstances, but joy is about God and us. We can experience Jesus' joy no matter what is happening in our lives. Heaven is all about his joy, which calms and heals us.
In a society that pushes and praises individuality, we forget that we are at our best because of the people around us. We find life, humility, and belonging in community. We all have reasons to avoid it, but we will truly discover ourselves when we are with others.
