Is “being dead to sin” properly explained from the pulpit these days? Further illustration in the audio below.

… have you forgotten that when we were joined with Christ Jesus in baptism, we joined him in his death? For we died and were buried with Christ by baptism. And just as Christ was raised from the dead by the glorious power of the Father, now we also may live new lives. (Romans 6:3, 4 NLT)

“Big Mike’s” Story. Living on the streets & in violent gangs Chicago, even seeing many of his friends killed in the process. Chasing money, fancy cars etc. & eventually found that all these things didn’t bring fulfilment. Now ministering to people, just as broken as he used to be.

Fire School missionary in China. Real existing persecution in China, as also mentioned in the book by Brother Yun. The terrible pain caused by the one-child-policy & the struggle for the Chinese church to even start to counter abortion & infanticide.

Fire School missionary among homeless in Atlanta. How he realised that “following Jesus” meant the end of his live & the start of completely new life in Jesus. Joel carries a big wooden cross around as a tool to witness – which might seem weird & foolish, but it actually draws people to him & it also gets everyone that comes to talk to him right to the topic at hand. Brilliant actually. 🙂

Fire School missionary in Tanzania. Previously suicidal & used to “pretty things & luxury” she made a new life in Africa at age 50.
Fire School missionary in ‘depraved Holland’. The challenges in the culture that are pioneers in legalized same-sex marriage, prostitution, drugs & euthanasia.

Fire School missionary in Kurdistan talks about the countries the gospel took him to & the massive impact the powerful call to the Great Commission had on him – just by a random missionary at a train station.

An extract taken from “Mere Christianity”, by CS Lewis. A book I cannot recommend wholeheartedly, but which surely contains some good wisdom.
