#24 Something Worth Dying For -Podcast

If you’ve never listened to any of my previous podcasts, this is the one you need to listen to!

But first let me warn you that the content that I’m going to share with you today might not be pleasant for you to hear.

It might go against everything you’ve been taught about Christianity.

In this episode of Now is the Time  I’m not going to give you any tips on how to improve your life.

In fact if you take to heart what I talk about today it’s quite likely that just the opposite will happen!

A Worthy Death

Last week was Ukraine’s 9/11! Nearly 100 people gave up their lives for a cause they believed was of more value than their life!

In this episode I go in depth about what it means to give up your life and how we often sacrifice our lives for things and ideas that are not worthy.

Episode Resources

>Not a Fan by Kyle Idleman. I just finished reading it and highly recommend it. Kyle points out how the gospel was always a call to give up all and follow  Jesus and never a call to cheer from the sidelines.

>Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis. This is a classic and if you have never read it then you need to get it right now, so stop wasting your time here and read the book!

I am a pastor, missionary, and preacher of the Gospel of Jesus Christ in Ukraine since 2007. God blessed me with a wonderful wife and 5 amazing children! My greatest passion is to teach, encourage, and exhort others to turn to Jesus, who is Savior, Lord, and God!

  • Good point. We all do sacrifice for something and we all tend to live the secular life of pleasing flesh now. I’m with you. Know one wants to consider in our modern church that the example of our Savior is sacrifice. The example of all of the disciples and Paul, except for John, sacrificed themselves also. It just blows me away when I hear people say that ‘God would never want us to suffer.’

    • Certainly suffering is something that we as Christians should be ready to go through, thankfully we know that Christ suffered for us and He will give us everything we need to endure.
