Show Notes Transcript

The theme for August at The Redeemed is stories of hope and restoration. Paul Amos and Nate Dewberry give a brief introduction to that theme in this short edition of The Redeemed Man podcast, emphasizing the importance of sharing our stories with one another—both the stories of our sins and failings and the stories of our triumphs. Ultimately, we have to remember that any truly inspiring redemption story has to include some struggle.

Mike Malone’s life has certainly seen its share of challenges and low points, but none were more devastating than the cancer diagnosis he received in 2016. His treatment and recovery were long and at times painful, but over the course of that struggle, he learned things that transformed his life—how his prior experiences had prepared him for the battle; how he could let go of anger and bitterness he’d been carrying around for years; and how God was using cancer to help him become a better man. Mike talks with Nate Dewberry about all these revelations in this week’s podcast, as well as the importance of a loving wife and what we should really be looking for when we open the Bible.
