The concept of “dying out to self” can be found throughout scripture and it expresses the true essence of the Christian life. God often will bring us into situations that provide us a deeper understanding of truly giving up on our own wants and needs and focusing instead on pouring our lives into furthering the gospel of Christ. In this episode, host Jerrad Lopes discusses his family’s journey into becoming foster parents, the crazy emotions that have come along with their first placement, a 2-year-old little girl, and the insight it has given him into the importance of faithfully leading his family to Jesus by stepping outside his comfort zone and dying to self. When you set aside your own ambition and instead focus on furthering the gospel in your own family “congregation,” you might just change the world!

“Pure religion and undefiled before God and the Father is this, To visit the fatherless and widows in their affliction, and to keep himself unspotted from the world.”
