Episode 49 show notes
As 2019 comes to an end, with several weeks of travel in my future plus the Christmas holidays, I’m taking a break from the podcast and sharing a series of encore episodes with you. Starting in January, you’ll get to hear some fresh, new interviews. In case you’re wondering: encore episodes are episodes that I selected from among the early days of the podcast because I think they have a great message for you. Each encore episode will feature only a portion of the original interview, so I encourage you to go back to that episode if you want to hear all of it.
The second encore episode I want to share with you comes from episode 9, and in that episode, I interviewed First Lieutenant Ryan Menicucci—who I believe now is a captain in the US Army. There were three things that he shared during that episode: first, we must have faith in something that is worthy of our faith; second, we must know who we are in Christ; and third, we must be prepared to fight the good fight, as we engage in spiritual warfare.
This was an excellent conversation I had with LT Menicucci, and while the message is relevant to anyone who is serving or who has served in the US Armed Forces, do me a favor: if you know someone at one of the academies or who’s just getting started in their military calling, share this episode with them. There are a lot of good points that might be especially helpful to young officers.
Three questions as you listen:
1. Do you have faith in something that is worthy of your faith?
2. Do you know who you are in Christ?
3. Are you aware of and prepared for spiritual warfare?
