There are many misconceptions about dying to self but the early church required a life of sacrifice. They suffered to pay a price for others, just as Jesus suffered and paid the price for our salvation. Jesus said if we are to follow him we must, “deny ourselves and pick up our crosses”Matthew 16:24. In this exhorting message, Nathan Padilla reveals what it really means to die and live as Christ. There is a suffering that has to come and we have to have adversaries in order to overcome for other souls. The greatest persecution we will face will come from within. How do we handle these persecutions? The early church thrived and grew because of persecution and knew that every test they passed was a promotion in the glory of God. We go higher in revelation the more we endure. Partner with us today to help bring the revelation of God’s Kingdom to the nations!
