Finding Freedom from our Desires in Christ

Today's follower of Jesus exists at a moment in history when our desires, longings, and wants are being weaponized against us by cultural, spiritual, and relational forces. "You do you" has become the mantra of the culture. Ed Stetzer talks with A.J. Swoboda about how we can find God amidst our desires... and cultivate them to bring life and freedom in Christ.
