Love Isn’t Always Efficient
In this video, Paul Miller, author and founder of SeeJesus, a global discipling mission, tells the story of how he learned to love through seasons of suffering in his own family. Through his family’s own trials, he came to realize that loving people isn’t always efficient, but rather, it requires you to slow down and be present and attentive. Paul shares his own journey of learning this kind of love from the pattern of Jesus’s life.
Like the letter “J,” Jesus’s life descends through his incarnation and then death, and then upward into his resurrection and exaltation.
Mark Vroegop shares his family’s story of loss and grief, recounting how God used that experience to introduce him to the biblical concept of lament.
Dying and rising is the pattern not only of Jesus’s life, but of our lives—of our everyday moments.
