Urgent Obedience

By definition, is faith even exercised if our lives are acted out in situations of certainty. Hebrews 11 defines faith as, “confidence that what we hope for will actually happen; it gives us assurance about things we cannot see.” So, what is, “stepping out in faith?” Should we all, at all times, be exemplifying this type of extremeContinue reading “Urgent Obedience”

Champion the Youth

One of the most beautiful things I have seen in the body of Christ is bold, shameless eagerness that young believers get once they realize the authority and power they have, when God is on their side. In most cases, it leads to outlandish plans of million-man-march proportions, but there is nothing more refreshing. IncredibleContinue reading “Champion the Youth”

Ruined for the Ordinary

It is difficult trying to generate enthusiasm while explaining spiritual moments that, apart from being intertwined with God, naturally seem ordinary.

Some of these guys I once considered “closer than family” during different periods of my life. These people know my darkest secrets, theyContinue reading “The Past 15 Months”

Day Changer

“The quickest way to enter ministry is by telling someone they have worth.” Dean Sherman It’s no secret that the “ruler of this world” is in every aspect of society. Literally, “(prowling) around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour (1 Peter 5).” He has free reign to influence and infiltrate anywhere he chooses. Work, school,Continue reading “Day Changer”

Stake Your Claim

This is what’s on my heart. There is an overarching concept circulating amongst believers that we are always either entering, or leaving a “season” in our life.  To a degree this may be true, and undoubtedly saying this is harmless and pure in intent. Even using this rhetoric properly to distinguish periods of life can create a goal-orientedContinue reading “Stake Your Claim”
