What Hill Are You Willing to Die On?


In October, 2021, we were pleased to have Pastor Curtis McMiller from Heritage Baptist Church in Kenosha speak at the Father/Son Retreat at Trail Ridge Camp in Hillsboro, Wisconsin. This Crosstalk features his powerful challenge that he presented to the men in attendance called, What Hill Are You Willing to Die On?

Pastor McMiller began by reading from 2 Samuel 23:11-12, where the text mentions Shammah who stood strong against the Philistines in the midst of a field of lentils.

Lentils of course, are beans and were a source of food for God's people. So here was a man who was willing to put his life on the line for beans! So if he's willing to die for beans, what are you willing to die for?

After this, Pastor McMiller referenced Numbers 31:7-8 where Joshua was leading the Israelites and they were poised to wipe out a number of people groups who were against God. This portion of Scripture notes that as they warred against the Midianites, as the Lord commanded Moses, every man was killed including Balaam son of Beor.

Balaam was at one time in close connection with God. He was a man that would pray and obtain results from God, yet here we see him being destroyed by the armies of Israel. Why? It's because he decided to run with the ungodly, therefore he ended up dying on the hill of the ungodly.

So what hill are you willing to die on? Are you willing to die on God's side or are you heading toward a scenario that has you dying, like Balaam, on the hill of the ungodly?

It's a challenging question every Christian must face, one that is critical given the turmoil of the culture we live in.
