Karolina was careful never to break the rules. She religiously attended church. She did everything they taught in order to make herself a better person – a person good enough for the distant god she felt she could never appease to accept.
Deep down, she always knew it would never be enough.
Karolina participated in a Gospel Joy Workshop, where she was accepted by the believers there. Their community and freedom propelled her to visit one of the Word Zone church plants.
What she saw – real people with real challenges demonstrating real faith and genuine love for one another – changed her life.
Karolina wanted to be like the people there. But the “good-enough” girl still wasn’t ready to give up on being considered good through religious good works.
A few months later, she attended a Word Zone camp. ITMI partners Andrew and Ania Gorski were instrumental in helping her see the joys of a personal relationship with an intimate Savior. They gently explained that she could only be “good-enough” in Christ.
With tears in her eyes, Karolina gave up on her religious works and decided to begin a relationship with Jesus and become part of a body of believers in Warsaw.
The music of Gospel Joy is joyful and exuberant about the singers’ relationship with Jesus.
