EP9 | How to Actually Believe God and Why It Matters
So much of what we invest our time into during this life will not matter eternally.
Every worldly thing we build will ultimately crumble.
Every personal accomplishment will die with us, or shortly thereafter.

Hebrews 11:35-38, “…But others trusted God and were tortured, preferring to die rather than turn from God and be free…”
