Sharon speaks on the inspiration behind her book and what has led her to thrive in her life. She speaks on insecurity, the idolatry of ministry, and approval of others that brought her to seek Jesus and make Him the focal point of her life instead of herself.
We truly dig deep into what real insecurity is and what the only solution for this epidemic in our culture is: the Gospel. We also discuss moving from focus on self to dependency on the Lord.
Later on in the episode, we discuss the importance of mentorship, and what those generations ahead of us can truly teach us. They can give us hope to keep running the good race.
One of my favorite parts of this talk was our talk on cynicism in our culture today, even in the church. We discuss the elevation of humanity in these current times and how that leads to an elevation of pride, belief that humans are inherently good, and thus we make less of Jesus. It is an amazing discussion on the balance of the fact that we are beautiful creations of the Lord and that we are also broken people without Christ. Scripture is a good tool that keeps us balanced in who we are in Jesus.
This is such an amazing and insightful episode that will bring you wisdom just from listening. I hope you enjoy this time with Sharon!
