Don’t let the fire die

Steven Curtis Chapman wrote a song entitled “Don’t let the fire die”. This song which debuted in the early 90’s had such a profound effect on me as a follower of Christ. I love the meaning of the song. It showed me how I had let the routine and mundane diminish the fire that I had once possessed for my Lord and His gospel. It seemed that just by living life…my fervor had begun to cool I knew that I needed to stoke the fire.

Why Together?

We pick up today with my because you ask segment. Hopefully we’ve answered the questions “What is the gospel” and “why live it out“. This morning I want to remind each of you that we need each other. We were created to worship Him and the cool thing is, is that we get to do this together. I like to believe that their is strength in numbers…so today, I want to attempt to answer the question Why together?

Daily Walk…points to live by

I am often ask about my daily walk and quiet time. I am finding that people are interested in what I do to stay close and clean in my relationship with Jesus.

I am certain this morning as I write the words to this blog that those who read this, specifically those individuals that are members of the POINT (The Church I lead) will begin to put great thought into the five people they are planning on being intentional with and inviting into a discipleship relationship.

Testify Tuesday

testify

For there is one God, and one mediator also between God and men, the man Christ Jesus, 6 who gave Himself as a ransom for all, the testimony given at the proper time. 7 For this I was appointed a preacher and an apostle (I am telling the truth, I am not lying) as a teacher of the Gentiles in faith and truth. 8 Therefore I want the men in every place to pray, lifting up holy hands, without wrath and dissension. (1 Timothy 2:5-8)

Make me understand the way of Your precepts,
So I will meditate on Your wonders.

As I sit this morning with a good cup of coffee reflecting on all the events of the past week…I still cannot help but be a little overwhelmed at all that has taken place. Saying good bye is never easy…especially when it is an unexpected good bye.
