This passage in Matthew 5 has rung true with me this week as I literally got knocked down on Sunday when I listened to a message from a "biblical goat" that called me out by name and tore me apart. After I heard this I was confused, hurt, after the holy spirit led me to this online message. I don't say this lightly and I say it humbly...but be careful if you are going to rip me to pieces because it seems the holy spirit wants me to know about it.
Last night and today God has been giving me such a fresh new excitement about what is going on in my life. From a book in the works, to the church I am the pastor of, to being asked to be a seminar speaker at a Christian music festival in the summer of 2011. God is so encouraging me with this path he is taking me down in life and I now find these kind of personal attacks to be the gas I need to keep on keeping on. This verse above really rings true with me as I continue to press forward.
I am so fired up right now in a good way and excited for what is ahead for me, Radiant Fellowship, That's Not My God" and my family! I am humbled at the sphere of influence God is growing in front of me and I am all charged up in my spirit again!
John Wesley said, “When you set yourself on fire, people love to come and see you burn.” Consider this person, "on fire!"
