E-60: It’s Manly to Fight!

In this episode, Jason talks about spiritual posing on social media … and how the Apostle Paul recently gave him a flying knee to the face over it. With that, you’re going to learn from a real elite fighter/warrior (the Apostle Paul) that it’s manly to fight. At the end of this episode, Jason shares some practical examples of what he’s personally fighting for and what you also need to be fighting for.

E-59: The Discipline of Difficulty!

In this episode, Jason reminds us once again of what the real Christian life really looks and feels like. It’s not a walk on a paved nature trail at your local park. It sometimes feels more like being dropped into Taliban infested Afghanistan with an American flag wrapped around us! It’s a fight, a struggle, a battle … and sometimes we feel utterly overwhelmed … but our Lord has given us some amazing promises to empower us through every difficulty we face as we daily seek Him, trust Him, and obey Him.

We gotta do that as Christian men!

Oswald Chambers. Author of My Utmost for His Highest.

In this episode, Jason gives us his own modern day paraphrase from Oswald Chambers’ … The Discipline of Difficulty which comes from the best-selling devotional book of all-time, My Utmost for His Highest!

If you don’t have a copy of My Utmost for His Highest, dude, you need one!

E-29: “If you’re going through Hell … Keep going!”

In this episode, Jason brings some inspiration and motivation to those of you who’ve been feeling beat up and are stuck down in the pit. You’re not the only Christian brother going through it. All of us go through various trials that knock us down and make us want to just throw in the towel on life (even the Apostle Paul). You’re not alone, but you gotta get up! You gotta get up and fight it! “NEVER QUIT” is part of who we are in Christ. Quitting is not an option. In the strength of God, you gotta fight it! In this episode, Jason shares some of his own personal and recent trials/struggles and he then pounds us with some inspiration and motivation with some hardcore tunes. Remember what Sir Winston Churchill said, “If you’re going through Hell … keep going!” #NeverQuit
