Episode details

In this edition of the Ministry Minded Podcast, I reflect on the gospel of God’s comfort and the specific reason why it’s so comforting — namely, because we have a Substitute. I also talk about why Jesus is the true and better hero and why a religion of scorekeeping can never last.
