The guest on this edition of Crosstalk was Rusty Thomas. Rusty is Director of Operation Save America, which unashamedly takes up the cause of pre-born children in the name of Jesus Christ. Rusty spent multiple years as a traveling evangelist, has written two published books and many articles.
This broadcast tells the story of a battle that is underway as we speak. It’s the battle for life. It involves 16 year old Jeremiah Thomas, Rusty’s son, whose life is literally hanging in the balance. Just 90 days ago he was an active teen who not only was likely thinking of his upcoming football season, but was also actively engaged in another battle for life as he was engaged in ministry, standing up for the life of the pre-born. But just 90 days ago, Jeremiah learned he had a very aggressive form of cancer which, unless the Lord intervenes, will take his life, likely soon. Jeremiah has Osteoblastic Osteosarcoma, a bone cancer resistant to radiation. Rusty has put it this way, “An hour glass has been turned upside down and Jeremiah’s life is seeping out.”
Throughout this broadcast, Rusty documents the life of Jeremiah; his early days when he exhibited a toughness that translated to a love for football, his growth through ministry, the rededication of his life to Christ, the discovery of his illness, how his life within the context of illness has touched so many lives (including a state governor!) and much more.
It’s our prayer that this program will be more than just that of inspiration, but one that will drive you to prayer, one that will cause you to focus on your own mortality, and one that will cause you to focus on the eternal rather than the temporal.
