LISTEN NOW! John, Pat, and Steve discuss Marcus Lutrell’s story, a former seal and American hero. Marcus had been training to be a Navy Seal since he was 14 years old. He was assigned to a mission along with 3 other seals to kill or capture Ahmad Shah (nom de guerre Mohammad Ismail), a high-ranking Taliban leader responsible for killings in eastern Afghanistan and the Hindu-Kush mountains. This mission ended with 150 Taliban fighters surrounding them and intense gun battle took place leaving Marcus a lone survivor. Marcus said that he trained his whole career for that moment to serve, fight, and to give all that he had for his fellow soldiers and country. John, Pat, and Steve continue to discuss how the church can learn from Marcus’s story and how we can train and prepare ourselves to lay our lives down for God. They encourage us to be willing to let “self” die for the spiritual advancement of God’s Kingdom. We want to invest all the life we have on this earth for the things of God.
