See Why Faith Hurts — And That’s OK

As a father of six children, I’ve dealt with more than a few cuts and bruises–and the most dreaded of all – splinters. Before a splinter was pulled, the fear of pain was almost always greater than the pain itself. For this reason, each of my children resisted attempts for healing.

This resistance to healing reminds me of our spiritual lives. There is a widespread belief in modern Christianity that walking by faith should be pain-free. This lie, coupled with our fear of pain, keeps us from following Christ.
