Season 2, Episode 23: Overcoming a Culture of “Try Harder to Get Better”
Continuing our month-long primer on “self-discipline” (and how we’ve turned it into both an idol and a prison), we give lots of practical help for tapping into our TRUE source of life. If Jesus is simply asking us to “abide” in him, with fruit in our life as a result, then what’s the use of trying hard in life? We’ll dive into two important contrasting Scripture passages to find our balance point—James 2 and John 15. And if you’re struggling to let go of shame and guilt in your life, we’ll show you how to let it all go. Join us as we pay ridiculous attention to what Jesus says about discipline.
Join the Pigs. Are you ready to go all-in with Jesus? Ready to live a life that is “free indeed” because you’re wholly dependent on Jesus? Are you ready to slow down and wallow in the mud-puddle stories of Jesus? Join the Pigs. We’ll invite you into exclusive behind-the-scenes insights, give you opportunities to make your voice matter, pray for you, and connect you to other Pigs inside our private Facebook group. Join Here.
