In Episode #73, Rick Mathes preaches about the cross, its transforming power, and the need for us to look towards it with a commitment of self sacrifice. Our leader, Jesus, died on the cross, and rose from the dead. If we wish to echo the true message of Christ, we must die to self, and live for Christ! How you might say? By living a life outside of our own personal wants and/or needs. We must put others above oursleves. And with the love of christ reflecting in our actions towards others, we learn to live a self sacrifical life and honor our Father in heaven. Jesus poured His self out for us, why can't we pour oursleves out for Him...or others?

In Episode #71, Rick Mathes is interviewed by Dr. Gina on her radio broadcast about his interview with an Imam in prison that has received international attention. Here Ricks response to the nieghbor muslim, how we should respond in love, and his take on our relationship with our muslim cousins. The battle christians face is; how do we witness to non believers about Christ in love? Since we are called to witness, what does it take to allow our faith be known when facing opposition as we do when encountering the Muslim religion? Jesus states, "I am the way, the truth and the Life, NO ONE goes to ther Father except through Me." Listen to how we need to express this message to others in a way that seem to escape most...the way of love.
