There’s nothing like truth to get you ready for a challenge. And there’s nothing like a lie to sweep your feet out from under you.
So let’s just be honest. The Christian life is going to stink sometimes. It’s going to be hard. You are going to suffer. You are going to be hated. You are going to make mistakes. You’re going to have to apologize sometimes …and you’re going to have to overlook hurts sometimes. Your life isn’t going to go smoothly. You do have spiritual enemies in high places.
