This Jesus Life Podcast

Andrew Hanna and Josh Burcham

We aren’t a theology podcast, though we talk about theology. We aren’t a relationship podcast, though we talk about relationships. We aren’t a self-help podcast, though we would love to help you with yourself.

We are just two normal guys living this Jesus life and hoping to make a difference in this world. We want you to have hope, find freedom, and experience life to the full.

“Martha, Martha,” the Lord answered, “you are worried and upset about many things, but few things are needed—or indeed only one. Mary has chosen what is better, and it will not be taken away from her” (NIV. Luke 10:41-42). Being with Jesus and doing things for Jesus can be a difficult balance for many, but often we make it a lot more difficult than it should be.

In the world of Christianity, it is easy to fake it and at times not even realize you are doing so. Christianity is about being in a relationship with Jesus and others, individually living out the Great Commission. It is Jesus and our relationship with him that produces change in our hearts and lives, not our ability to be better.

Love isn't something that God does, it is something He is. If you are going to imitate God in how He loves people, we've got to spend a lot more time thinking about people than we do about ourselves.
