Battle Ready Podcast - S03 E06 | August 21, 2020

In this week’s podcast, Erwin and Aaron McManus use the NBA ‘bubble’ as context to discuss what it means to overcome and achieve greatness in challenging environments. Right now we are watching some basketball players excel, while others are choking. Erwin reminds us that we don’t have the right to complain about something that everyone else is experiencing. We are all being faced with obstacles right now. But, those who prepared ahead of time are coming out on top.

To be able to thrive in moments of pressure, we need to be living for an audience of one-God. When we live for the applause outside of our own ‘bubble,’ we cave when the cheers subside. As humans, we are meant to live in a drive that is deeply internal. Our work and our achievements can only take us so far if we depend on praise from others.

Aaron opens up about areas in his character he has grown in as well as where he wants to continue to see growth. Erwin reminds him that sometimes, we outgrow relationships as we grow. And growth by nature is incremental. We all need relationships that believe in the best of us.

Lastly, the McManus duo answer a question from a listener about how they see the future of the Church. They address the need for a diverse group of thinkers within the Church including: John Mark Comer, Michael Todd, Judah Smith, and Chad Veach. These voices are bringing unique perspectives and messages needed for this time.
