    Would It Have Been Fun to Be Jesus?

    Would It Have Been Fun to Be Jesus?

    Jesus could heal people, walk on water, control the weather, multiply food, make wine, walk through walls, and wake the dead. Having such incredible abilities sounds amazing, but would it have been fun to be Jesus?


    Though there were moments of happiness and fun, the purpose of Jesus’ ministry was to tell people to repent and return to the Father, and many, including his own disciples, rejected and denied him. He knew that this would happen, but did not use his power to stop it.


    The things most worth pursuing in life (marriage, raising kids, having a deep spiritual life, etc.) are never going to be fun all the time, because love isn’t just fun and warm fuzzy feelings.


    The goal of life isn’t to have as much fun as possible before we die, it’s to live a life like Jesus, one that is centered on the love of God.


    Snippet from the Show
    “Our goal in relationships is not fun. It’s love.”

    What’s Your Favorite Bible Verse?

    What’s Your Favorite Bible Verse?

    Jeff is reflecting on his favorite Bible verse, Galatians 2:20. He first committed it to memory almost thirty years ago, and it has been with him ever since. This verse reminds him that he must die to himself everyday in order to walk with Christ.


    Galatians 2:20 - "and it is no longer I who live, but it is Christ who lives in me. And the life I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me."
