Involvement in the global enterprise of following Christ always requires death in various shapes and sizes. Some will literally be asked to die (Jn 12:24), while others will be asked to die to selfishness, materialism, consumerism and all the other enemies of the Jesus-exalting gospel. Dietrich Bonhoeffer's most famous statement - "When Jesus calls a man, he bids him come and die" - urges us to take courage for the sake of Christ's kingdom. - Paul Borthwick
