WHAT YOU WILL HEAR

Our guest for On The Other Side #11 is a very dear friend of the Ivey crew, Zach Verrett. Aaron met Zach a year and a half ago when he came on staff at The Austin Stone, and they immediately became friends. Zach ended up sharing his whole story of how he grew up, when he met Jesus, and how hard it was to tell someone for the first time that he experiences same sex attraction. This is Zach’s story of being on the other side of coming out.

Zach has truly become a member of our family and we are so honored he is joining us on the podcast today. In this episode, he shares about feeling like he couldn’t ever tell anyone what he was going through, not even the Lord. It wasn’t until he heard a sermon on God’s view of sexuality that he fully experienced freedom in Christ and was able to share this with others. As sinners, each and every one of us has different struggles that we will carry with us at some point in our lives. But that is where the freedom of Christ comes in. We love when Zach says “Where Christian culture and the gospel differ in a lot of ways is expecting change before receiving God’s love.” That is so true. Without receiving God’s love, we cannot fully experience the heart transformation needed to walk in obedience with Christ. Zach’s story is one of faithfulness and radical obedience. We love seeing what God has done in his life and what He will continue to do.
