Church Nerds 64 | The Importance of Doing Hard Things

SHOW NOTES

Few things rival the feeling of finally beating a game that has made us question our resolve multiple times over weeks, maybe even months – the moment we finally conquer something we thought was beyond us, because the game forced us to level up. But in our spiritual lives, are we too soft? Or are we allowing ourselves to be challenged so we can level up?
