Pastor Lutzer | November 6, 1994

Summary

Bonhoeffer said, “When God calls a man, He bids him to come and die.”

Selected highlights from this sermon

Dietrich Bonhoeffer and other Christian leaders tried to rally the church against the growing evil of Adolf Hitler’s reign. Bonhoeffer was often a lonely voice of objection, as others went their own way. 

He was a man familiar with death. He died to familial relationships, the love of money, and his own aspirations, and ultimately, Bonhoeffer’s physical death was ordered by Hitler. Are we dying to ourselves and seeking to do the will of God as he did?
