Hydrate Break > Episode 1: Simplicity of Faith
Jesus spent a lot of his time on earth simplifying faith for us. He told many stories explaining the kingdom of God to His followers in simpler terms. He even took all the commandments of God and squeezed them into to two: Love the Lord your God and love your neighbor as yourself. And He said that by keeping those two commands you will keep all the commandments. However, he never said that it would be easy.
3 Take Aways
