Lecrae preaches a powerful sermon on joy through sacrifice inspired by Hebrew 12:2. The rapper was a guest speaker at VOUS Church where he broke down his testimony of discovering who God wanted him to be.

“We live in a culture that encourages us to bury failure and pain. It’s a social media society where escape into the latest, shiny thing along with a desperation for likes and followers is the norm. Pitfalls such as depression and trauma need to be avoided at all costs, even though we’ve all been there at one point or another. But what if the very things we run away from, the raw hurt and pain, could produce in our lives true purpose and identity?” reads part of the video’s description.
