Abundant life can be yours. But in order to live, you first have to die (Matthew 16:25). The fact is, if you have nothing worth dying for, you have nothing worth living for. You may never have to make the ultimate sacrifice, but you are called to daily give up something of this earthly existence to pursue the amazing life Jesus promises to His followers. In To Die For, Ryan Dobson shatters common misconceptions about dying to self, spelling out the realities of the deadly spiritual battle each of us faces. He provides clear guidelines for making life-and-death choices daily and deals with how to overcome the emotional struggles that accompany both failure and success.
The End of Life as You Know It…
…Is the Beginning of Life as You Need It
Why do I feel so dead when God promised me life?
You had such expectations. Such hopes. Such plans. But life isn’t working out the way you thought it would. Jesus answers the void with abundant LIFE. But to get it, you have to die—die to self and the quick fixes of this world.
Fact is, if you have nothing worth dying for, you have nothing really worth living for. In To Die For, Ryan Dobson passionately demonstrates what it means to die to self. We may never face a physical death for our faith…but we’re called to daily deny ourselves doses of this earthly existence. And to pursue the amazing LIFE Jesus promises.
Don’t settle for average.
Get a LIFE…
…It’s to die for.
Story Behind the Book
One of the main reasons I wrote this book is because I see people today as bored—we are bored with life. There’s nothing that’s truly worth dying for, which means there’s nothing worth living for either. I see people just filling their lives with diversions, running from one thing to the next. I want to give people the adventure that God has given me. I have truly found something in my life worth fighting for—and worth dying for. I am willing to fight and, if necessary, die for my faith in Christ. It has not made my life a downer—but has filled my life with adventure.
