Obedience is hard when the sun is shining and life is good, but what about when the storm clouds come? When you get a scary diagnosis, or your business goes bankrupt, or your friend rejects you for your faith—this is when obedience feels costly, even like death. The Bible might tell us to expect suffering, but that doesn’t mean it’s easy when it comes. Our natural response in suffering is to turn inward and to focus on ourselves. So when the call to obey comes up, it feels like even more is being taken from us. But in this episode, Laura and Emily provide encouragement for the sufferer, and gospel hope that even costly obedience leads to life.
