Surrender

We don’t talk about surrendering to God anymore. We talk about 15 steps to be a better you, 10 steps to your best life and 5 steps to be a better leader. We spend all of our time building up what God called us to crucify. ~OC

Face of God

When I stand at the foot of the ocean and look in awe. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I see the beauty of a sunrise on a summer morning. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I try to count all the stars in the sky. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I see people worshiping and praising with their arms stretched up to heaven. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I see my bride smiling back at me. Maybe I’m looking at the face of God.

When I am lifting praises and prayers up to God, maybe I am looking at the face of God. And He’s smiling back at me. ~OC

Know God’s Truth

Today’s a new day! If I know what God says about me, why would I give up God’s truth about me for the opinion of someone who did not create me, die for me, shower me with grace and call me into a personal eternal relationship? ~OC

Prayer Warriors

Today’s a new day! Find me one person in the Bible who made a real difference, that did not have a strong prayer life. If we want to make a real difference for the Kingdom, we have to be Strong Prayer Warriors. ~OC

Let’s Go

As I go from hospital to hospital people are hurting.

As I travel from one meeting to another people are hurting.

As I walk through the grocery store people are hurting.

As I travel to these different places, I am overwhelmed by how many people are eager to hear the word of God. The Living Water. It’s as if the Holy Spirit went before me to prepare their hearts.

My fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, the world is truly hurting. This hurting world needs to hear the message of Love, Grace, Forgiveness and Salvation.

You may get some of these hurting people to church to hear the beautiful message of Jesus, but as disciples of the Living King we need to take this amazing message to where they are and let the Holy Spirit do what He does best.

So my fellow brothers and sisters in Christ, let’s hit the streets and speak to whoever He brings our way. The world is hurting. The Harvest is ready. Let’s go! ~OC

Lead Us Holy Spirit

The Holy Spirit in us should not only encourage us, but It should compel us to be more committed to Jesus and our communities.

Christians who are willing to sacrifice all for Jesus realize community/fellowship is a necessity for all and not a luxury for a few.

We cannot have truly connected communities if we are unwilling to forsake everything for Jesus. Are we ready to make that commitment?

Are we truly willing to reach out to others in time of need? Even when it’s not comfortable. When it forces us out of our neatly constructed lives.

Let’s allow the Holy Spirit to draw us into a place of total surrender to our Savior. A place of surrender, that produces a greater love for Him and a greater need to truly embrace community. To truly serve others. To truly be the Church. ~OC

How Bright Is Your Light?

Today’s a new day!! The brightness of our light is not determined by how loud we talk, how big our platform is or how famous we are. No, the brightness of our light is determined by how loud our behavior speaks. The consistency of the decisions we make. Our commitment to truly follow Jesus and serve others. The decision to do the right thing regardless of what the world thinks. How bright is your light? ~OC

Show Up. Speak Up.

To make real difference, you have to show up and speak up. Even during the storms. Even during the unknown terrain. Even during the pain. Even when you would rather stay curled up in bed with the covers over your head. Even when it’s not easy. Even when it’s not popular. That’s how you make a difference in your part of the world. Also God expects nothing less from us. So keep showing up and speaking up. ~OC
