Good News: Life is Hard and Then You Die

Yesterday, a friend of mine sent me a message that read, “Life sucks.” And I responded, “Yep. It’s a promise from Jesus.” This episode is all about that. Well, kinda.

Many of us want to believe that Christianity is about the end of suffering, pain, and hard times. We want the successful Christian life to equal health, wealth, and happiness. But we forget that before Jesus ever resurrected, he was betrayed, mocked, beaten to a bloody pulp, nailed to a cross, and buried. This is a conversation about hard times. And hope. And cultivating joy in the midst of it all.
