Following Jesus can sometimes feel like a thrilling roller coaster ride, full of unexpected twists and turns. One moment, you may feel like the very foundation upon which Jesus intends to build his church, and in the next moment, he challenges you and encourages you to align yourself with his purpose. If you have ever experienced this spiritual journey, take comfort in knowing that you are not alone. Peter, a prominent figure in the biblical narrative, understood the power of words but realized that genuine faith required more than just speaking the right phrases. In this captivating episode of Coffee to Go, Project Zion Podcast co-hosts Karin Peter and Blake Smith delve into the significance of taking up one's "cross," emphasizing that it encompasses both addressing personal struggles and bravely standing up for the values that align with Jesus' teachings.
