Christian contentment is a frame of spirit that freely submits to and delights in God. One of the greatest hallmarks of the work of the Holy Spirit in our lives is contentment. The effects of sin are vast, but the power of the Spirit in delivering to us contentment in our lives is even greater. As you go through your day, focus on the work of the Holy Spirit in bringing you holiness, and find your satisfaction in God.
