The seven chapters include these paradoxes:
1) "Death is the New Life" deals with what it means to die to self, learn contentment, and how suffering can be a very positive outworking of God's working in our life. It also tackles what it means to be holy, and live a life of faith, hope, peace and love. One of the questions for reflection in this chapter was very thought provoking: "Will suffering destroy your hope and your faith, leaving you with nothing solid to stand on, alone and empty, or will your suffering destroy the parts of you that tie you to the things of this earth and keep your focus off the God of heaven?"
Some other gems from this chapter include:
"There is no fruit that grows from a seed that refuses to die.Read more ›
Throughout the book the authors drill deep into the fact that the Gospel turns life upside down by highlighting what results from this: death is the new life; less is the new more; weak is the new strong; slavery is the new freedom. Die Young is written in a warm, engaging pastoral and conversational tone that makes reading this book really easy. This book has seven chapters and only one hundred and sixty three pages.
The only weakness of this book relates to its structure and flow, as throughout the book they have "Here Lies" sections which contain the personal stories of the authors. These personal stories are helpful and instructive but it would have been better if these stories were woven into the material in the book than given separate pages throughout the chapters in the book.
Reading Die Young was helpful for me as it helped me to gain a better understanding of who I am in Christ. Die Young will be helpful to Christian teenagers and adults to understand who they are in Christ and what the life and death of Christ means for those who have given their lives to Him. I recommend reading Die Young by Hayley and Michael Dimarco to be instructed on how a death to self-frees the Christian to live with the fearless love and rock-solid hope that Jesus intends for His people.Read more ›
From death to new life removes self and replaces it with God and by removing self,we have true contentment.
From down to the new up is when I come to the end of me and all I have is God. When all is stripped away, you have nothing to cling to and redemption becomes that much sweeter.
When less is the new more I have more self-control instead of being out of control. When having less becomes a practice, my wants don't become needs that rule me. More is always in competition with God and with others which always leads to resentment, fear and envy.
When weak is the new strong, I have surrendered to the character of God. My weakness becomes God's strength proved in my life. Waiting becomes a virtue.Read more ›
