How the Gospel Saves You from the "Kanye West" Within All of Us
Kanye West's "My Beautiful Dark Twisted Fantasy" accurately sums up a fundamental flaw of humanity: there is a beast within all of us that will stop at nothing to get what it wants when it wants. Especially at the cost of hurting others and destroying relationships.
If you really look into your relationships, how much of it is motivated by selfishness? And by what you can get from that person? Are you just exploiting and taking advantage of that person to fill your own desires?
Love is the complete opposite. It sacrifices all present desires and needs for the sake of the other person. Who are you becoming today? How raging is that beast-like "Kanye" inside you? If you wish to kill it, as only Jesus and the gospel can, then listen in to this week's message to find out how.
