Testify

Tonight I will be delivering a message about the need for believers to testify about the great God we serve.  I was struck by this topic when I began to realise the serious impact that testimony can have on a group, and how one man’s testimony about the saving grace of Christ Jesus and the […]

Identity

This weekend I was privileged to be able to work with Climbing Blind again.  Climbing blind is a band from the Lubbock area who is quickly becoming my favorite worship team with which to work.  We were both called to work at the Disciple Now of New Home Baptist Church and we had a BLAST.  […]

Imitate His Example

Paul, writing to his pupil Timothy said that he should, “…but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity.” But where does he find this example?  Where should we look to see a model for living that would “set an example?” Christ’s example in speech had […]

Imitate Him in Every Way…

I have a nephew named Ace who is a little over 3 years old.  His father is Steven, my younger brother and farming cotton on the south plains of west Texas is their life.  I watch the facebook status updates for photos of Ace everyday and am not surprised when the photos characterise Ace in […]

Imitate His Growth

The word speaks of Jesus and says’ “and Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man” (Luke 2:52 ESV). If I am to imitate Him, I must begin in my growth in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and men. We grow in many ways every day we live, […]

Imitate

This week at the National Youth Workers Convention in San Diego, CA a pastor referenced a passage of scripture that seemed to strike me.  Not sure why, I prepared to meditate on this passage for the rest of the weekend and beyond.  Be imitators of me, as I am of Christ. (1 Corinthians 11:1) Such […]

Harvest

The harvest is a great time in the life of the farmer, and it is the culmination of all that the year entailed.  The identity of the year can be summed up in the harvest because it is the sum of all factors leading up to itself.  The harvest will be the make-or-break each year […]

Fraternity

Brotherhood is an overlooked and under appreciated aspect of ministry. It’s application is far more powerful than programs or events for men. There is no lesson or teacher that can help men become men more quickly and effectively than simple conversation and honest expression with other men. Our hearts as men long for fraternity, and […]

Learning

Learning is a unique experience.  It is a humbling process and an empowering finish.  It is necessary and progressive, yet we seem to avoid it as long as possible.  I am so glad that I am here at National Youth Workers Convention, in spite of the fact that Krystle is 1000 miles away.  I am […]
