Contentment With Identity

The Gospel Coalition 2014 Clarus Regional Conference


In this 49-minute session, Rick Phillips, the Senior Minister at the Second Presbyterian Church in Greenville, South Carolina, helps us wrestle with the problems that come up when we become discontent with our identity. By digging into the text of Psalm 16, Rick offers us insight into how our identity in Christ paves the way to developing contentment.

Our new identity in Christ holds us firmly in the midst of our trials. Our union with Jesus is the cornerstone on which we can build our contentedness. It’s through the hope of the resurrection that we can find satisfaction in the midst of our own hardships.
