Have you ever heard the phrase, “missing the forrest for the trees?" Sometimes we become so focused on the details of life that we miss the true meaning of life. What a shame! Too many people miss the joy of living due to the fear of dying. Others overcomplicate Christianity and rob life the joy Jesus promised us in John 10:10. In today’s episode we invite one of our regular guests, Pastor Ryan Hurt, to help remind us of what matters most. If you have ever felt bogged down by the worries of this world then you won’t want to miss this conversation.
