Today Perry and Shawna celebrate how Jesus has set us free and how he is setting us free more deeply. First, life wounds us. And we can fall into patterns of trying to heal the wounds. But the only way to be healed is by bringing it to Jesus. It’s scary, it’s painful, it’s humbling, but it’s worth it! Next a conversation about how Jesus sets us free from the deep rooted “I’m better than you” attitude. This attitude is at the heart of racism. But at the foot of the cross there is no racism. They playing field is leveled. The only thing we have at the foot of the cross is our need. And as we look up at the crucified one, we are healed. And finally Shawna shares how Jesus rescued her from taking her life as a pre-teen. And it was the message of God sending Jesus to a manger that made her realize how wanted by God she is. If you struggle with feeling unwanted, this a conversation you need to hear!
