Christ Breaks the Insanity

Categories: Midwestern State University

On Monday night I got the amazing opportunity to share the gospel with 20+ people. I got to share with spring breakers that I too was once in their shoes. I was caught up in the party life style my first 3 semesters of college. In those 3 semesters I felt emptier than I ever had before. I have once heard that the definition of insanity is doing things over and over again expecting different results and if that is correct than I was most definitely insane. I was going back to drinking and partying and expecting it to fill the hole that could only be filled by Christ’s love for me. God loved me so much to show me that nothing could be more satisfying than Him. Psalm 16:11 says, “You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.” That’s what I was seeking! I craved the fullness of joy in the presence of the Lord. There is no way I could be in His presence if it came down to my works or performance. But nothing is too great for the cross of Christ! Christ died for me while I was still a sinner (Romans 5:8) and He took away all of my shame and guilt by His death, burial, and resurrection! Because of what Christ has done for me I am welcomed into the King’s company! Oh and how sweet that company is! I am now able to put my trust outside of my performance and place my trust fully in Christ’s performance! God has shown me first hand this week that God makes all things work together for the good of those who love Him by letting me share the gospel of Christ at beach reach and every day! I am overwhelmed that He would love me enough to send me and allow me to be the means by which His gospel is spread! Our God is most assuredly a Mighty Warrior! Praise be to my God! How glorious He is!
