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
, 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
Three questions as you listen:
- Do you have faith in something that is worthy of your
- Do you know who you are in Christ?
- Are you aware of and prepared for spiritual warfare?
