The Comeback Kid

Revelation 2:2-7 (NIV1984) 2 I know your deeds, your hard work and your perseverance. I know that you cannot tolerate wicked men, that you have tested those who claim to be apostles but are not, and have found them false. 3 You have persevered and have endured hardships for my name, and have not grown weary. 4 Yet I hold this against you: You have forsaken your first love. 5 Remember the height from which you have fallen! Repent and do the things you did at first. If you do not repent, I will come to you and remove your lampstand from its place. 6 But you have this in your favor: You hate the practices of the Nicolaitans, which I also hate. 7 He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches. To him who overcomes, I will give the right to eat from the tree of life, which is in the paradise of God.

This church planting journey has been the most beautiful and yet brutal challenge of my life and Christian walk. I wouldn’t trade it for anything! Every day is a fight but the cause of Christ is a cause worth fighting for. One of the most rewarding, amazing, incredible, you get the picture, experiences is watching a wanderer come back home. There is no feeling on the planet like watching someone who was once close to God but life, circumstance, expectation, whatever, has caused them to fall away making a comeback. It is no easy task, believe me, I fully understand. Ministry is hard. People will disappoint you. Life happens at the speed of life. When I was fasting and praying asking God about the His purpose and vision for City on a Hill Church I felt a strong urging that God was going to use COAH to bring wanderers home. God was going to use COAH to help wanderers make a comeback. God was going to fill COAH with comeback kids. This is exactly what God has been and continues to do daily. It is my privilege to watch as I see people who hadn’t been in church for years coming home. I watch as God gently restores them, forgives them, heals them, changes them and then gets them back in the game. I have watched as these people have been a catalyst for others to make the same kind of comebacks. The Gospel is a story of comebacks. Jesus is the ultimate comeback kid! He came back from the dead defeated mankind’s three greatest foes; satan, sin, and death destroying the works of the enemy. But he isn’t done yet! No, no Jesus is going to make a huge comeback and this time when he comes back everyone is going to know who he is. As I read the text above from Revelation I asked myself why? what happened? The answer is in the text. They forgot to do the things they first did and fell out of love with Jesus. They let ministry, life, stuff, worries, relationships, people, and problems take first place. In modern times and maybe even then they allowed religion and hero worship get in the way of their walk with Christ. I have heard, “If we wouldn’t put men so high they wouldn’t fall so low.” Many people are made wanderers by shepherds who have fleeced the flock and have been left as prey for every wild beast (Ezk. 34). They have been so hurt by the church or people in the name of God that they lose faith. We must keep our eyes on Jesus! He is the only one who will never fail us. We must not lose our personal relationship with God because of man. We must not give up on God because we are disappointed with man. We can’t change anything from the outside in we can only bring change from the inside out and it has to start with us, in our hearts. We must be careful not to lose our first love and let the cause become greater than Christ. If we become cause centered rather than Christ centered we will be in danger to repeat the text above. Here is the Good News we don’t have to stay that way. We can make a comeback! The text calls us home. The text calls us to repentance. The text calls us to return to Jesus! The text calls us to make a comeback and promises to give us the power to make the comeback necessary. Listen I encourage you, I implore you, don’t give up on God or His Bride the Church because of man. Pursue Christ. Go back to the first day you met Jesus and live like every day is your first day. Make your comeback today, right now. Pray reconnect with Jesus, He loves you He is waiting. I have been tempted many times to walk away because of people. Truthfully I almost did! But I couldn’t. Do you know what kept me? I went back to the day Jesus found me. I went back to the moment Jesus took a broken, hopeless, helpless, dark horse and helped me make the comeback of the century. It was undeniably, unmistakably God! I couldn’t deny it. My comeback story is filled with setbacks but rather than seeing them as setbacks I see them as opportunities to make a comeback. Don’t let your setbacks become final make your comeback today! Be encouraged!

Guard Your Heart


In the past 22 months I have learned some very powerful and practical lessons in life and ministry. I think the one that should have the highest priority in my life and perhaps your as well is to guard your heart. From the heart the mouth speaks, minds conceive, and hands do. We must be ever so mindful to guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus testing our motives. Psalm 24 asks us a critical question, Who can ascend the holy hill of God? This Psalm does not leave us guessing it gives us a clear and concise answer, “Those who have clean hands and pure hearts.” Guarding our hearts is easier said than done because it requires honesty, brutal honesty! It requires us to deal with our deepest, darkest pain and it requires us to take a long hard and sometimes painful look in the mirror. I know full well and am fully convinced that City on a Hill Church would not and could not be as successful as we have been if I did not and if I do not guard my heart. The question to us and the question you are probably asking yourself is how? I’m glad you asked! Let’s look at scripture.

Philippians 4:6-8 (NIV1984) 6 Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God. 7 And the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus.

 Here we see the answer to guarding our hearts. Prayer. Praying even when we don’t feel anything. Praying when everything is just awesome! Praying when you feel like your living in the middle of God’s favor and praying when you feel like Jonah in the belly of the whale. Thanksgiving. Giving thanks to God for what He has done in our lives. Taking a quick look around and a quick look back to see where God has brought us will keep our hearts guarded against the enemy of our soul. Guarding our hearts means reminding ourselves of the goodness and the greatness of our God even when we can’t see it. Guarding our hearts means that we do not question is God’s heart is good toward us. Guarding our hearts means not allowing any distrust is sneak in as if God were keeping something from us instead we see all that God has given us. Guarding our hearts means looking a the bible as a book of promises and freedoms not a book of laws and restrictions. Guarding our hearts means giving others the benefit of the doubt. Guarding our hearts means recognizing God is good and He expects us to be good because we are made in His image. Here is what I am also convinced of, if we do not guard our hearts they will become hard and calloused toward God and man. We will end up taking ten steps backwards. We will be further and further away from God’s will for our lives. Then rather than a time of refreshing and renewal we will also need a season of repentance before we can walk into God’s plan for our lives. My question is, Why delay? Why not guard our hearts and minds in Christ Jesus? Why don’t we just trust God to bring about His purposes and leave people to God? We can trust God is His justice. Please don’t look for life to be fair because it never has been and never will be! God is just and His purposes can not be thwarted (Job 42:2) So I encourage you my friends guard your hearts. If you’re going to get mad at something get mad at evil, satan, and sin. Take out your aggression on the enemy of your soul, strike hard into the heart of darkness. However, keep this in mind. We can not strike into the heart of darkness and not expect to pay a price. So guard your hearts. I want to leave you with a few scriptures to encourage you and to act as a warning sign or lighthouse concerning guarding our hearts. One last caution don’t think it can’t happen to you, because it can. To be forewarned is to be forearmed.

Soloman’s heart was turned away.

1 Kings 11:4 (ESV) For when Solomon was old his wives turned away his heart after other gods, and his heart was not wholly true to the LORD his God, as was the heart of David his father.

Blessings rest upon those whose hearts stay soft toward God.

Proverbs 28:14 (ESV) Blessed is the one who fears the LORD always, but whoever hardens his heart will fall into calamity.

Our hearts are the wellspring of life. What has God put in your heart to accomplish? What is God asking you to do? Guarding our hearts is critical to the accomplishing of our divine purpose.

Proverbs 4:23 (NIV) Above all else, guard your heart, for it is the wellspring of life.

Keep your hearts soft. Don’t give anyone the power to harden your heart. Don’t allow any circumstance to harden your heart even if it seems unrighteous. What would be worse is if the unrighteousness continues and renders us ineffective in the process. Guard your hearts and minds in Christ Jesus. We live our lives before the face of God. We live our lives for an audience of One! Don’t let anyone steal that from you and don’t let anyone tell you anything different. Be encouraged!

Bonus Blog: Be Careful What You Giveaway

This week is truly an unusual week. The Holy Spirit has been speaking to me in a number of ways. Today is no different. I have already blogged this week and I put a special video on facebook I felt the strong leading of the Holy Spirit to shoot from Fort DeSoto and now today I can’t shake this message.

I awoke with this thought in my heart and mind. Be careful what you giveaway. While driving home from the gym the thought just kept coming back stronger and stronger. I thought back over the past eighteen months. I thought of all of the precious people God has placed in my life as grace gifts. I thought about how at times I had been urged to pull back from or distance myself from certain people that I know full well God has placed in my life for a reason. I thought how blessed I am to follow the leading of the Holy Spirit rather than the words of then and women. The thought came into my heart and mind, be careful what you giveaway. If I would have listened to others I may have given away the influence I have been blessed by God to have in people’s lives for the sake of appearances. I tweeted today, “Be careful not to give up your influence in a life because of what others might say if they see you hanging out. Got to go with Jesus on this one.” Now I say this cautiously I am not talking about not living above reproach I am talking about giving away a relationship or fellowship with someone God has placed in your life because of what others might say. I am not saying approve of sinful behavior. We love the sinner and hate the sin. Hey we have to love sinners because we are one:) Sinners saved by grace that is;)

I thought to myself what if Jesus would have listened to the Pharisees where would that leave me? The answer in a world of trouble! I strongly encourage everyone to be careful what you giveaway at the urging of others. We must follow the leading of the Holy Spirit. Nobody hears from God for you better than you! (now that is retweetable) We must be careful what we give away. The souls of precious men and women hang in the balance. Don’t avoid “those kind of people”! I was and sometimes still am “those kind of people”. Treat each opportunity to be in fellowship with others as a grace gift. Look for God’s eternal purpose for linking you together. You don’t even have to agree! But if these people know that you love them they will love you back and your influence will grow. If you cut them off your influence ends. Folks we can’t afford to cut anyone off for the sake of appearances. I got to go with Jesus on this one.


Luke 7:36-47 (NIV) 36 Now one of the Pharisees invited Jesus to have dinner with him, so he went to the Pharisee’s house and reclined at the table. 37 When a woman who had lived a sinful life in that town learned that Jesus was eating at the Pharisee’s house, she brought an alabaster jar of perfume, 38 and as she stood behind him at his feet weeping, she began to wet his feet with her tears. Then she wiped them with her hair, kissed them and poured perfume on them. 39 When the Pharisee who had invited him saw this, he said to himself, “If this man were a prophet, he would know who is touching him and what kind of woman she is that she is a sinner.” 40 Jesus answered him, “Simon, I have something to tell you.” “Tell me, teacher,” he said. 41 “Two men owed money to a certain moneylender. One owed him five hundred denarii,and the other fifty. 42 Neither of them had the money to pay him back, so he canceled the debts of both. Now which of them will love him more?” 43 Simon replied, “I suppose the one who had the bigger debt canceled.” “You have judged correctly,” Jesus said. 44 Then he turned toward the woman and said to Simon, “Do you see this woman? I came into your house. You did not give me any water for my feet, but she wet my feet with her tears and wiped them with her hair. 45 You did not give me a kiss, but this woman, from the time I entered, has not stopped kissing my feet. 46 You did not put oil on my head, but she has poured perfume on my feet. 47 Therefore, I tell you, her many sins have been forgiven for she loved much. But he who has been forgiven little loves little.”

 

Look at how Jesus dealt with each person. Some would argue Jesus shouldn’t be hanging with Pharisees. What was the result? Jesus influenced him and taught him a valuable life lesson about the love of God. Some would argue, including the Pharisee, that Jesus shouldn’t be hanging out with the sinful woman. What was the result? Jesus’ love won her heart and she was forgiven of her sins. It was a win win for Jesus and it is a win win for us! Be careful what you give away. God may have put that person in your life to bring about His eternal purpose. We will never know if we give away the influence that we have. We will never know if we listen to the promptings of others and ignore the promptings of God. We will never know if we give away our relationship or fellowship. Notice Jesus didn’t disagree that she was a sinner. He just recognized she was a sinner in need of a Savior. I got to go with Jesus on this one. Look around who has God placed in your life? Why are they there? Be careful what you give away. Be encouraged!

The Litmus Test In Relationship Depth

Life has taught me some very tough lessons. None to many more painful than  that there are definitely different levels in relationships. Fifteen years of pastoring  has confirmed this truth. Church planting has solidified it even further. I try to live  my life by a core value and I have planted a church by this same value, “I never look  at a person for what they can do for me or for what they have. I look at people for who  they are which is far more important than what they can do or what they have.”  People are not resources to be used up and discarded after they have exhausted    their usefulness to us. People never truly exhaust their usefulness every person        has something to contribute. I have definitely discovered that there are different  levels in relationships and knowing those levels is critical. It is critical to recognize  what level of relationship we have with individual so that we can live in peace and harmony with one another and so that whatever level of relationship we have isn’t breached or broken. The hard part is determining that level of relationship. It requires taking an honest look at our relationships and evaluating them truthfully. In my observation and assessment everything begins with fellowship. Fellowship is simply being in community with each other. It may be the same church, sports team, workplace, college, school, neighborhood, ant place where we see each other daily. Fellowship then moves into relationship. We relate to one another know each other’s name, maybe the names of our family, we have small talk and conversations. Maybe even a meaningful in-depth conversation on occasion. We know and are known. This relationship than develops into a friendship. Friendship we choose to be around one another, we hang out on occasion, we invite one another to significant events, we share some of the details of our lives, we cal on each other in times of trouble, generally a friend is someone we trust and love. Now here is where the litmus test of relationship really becomes critical. Friendship can develop into leadership and leadership can develop into an even deeper more intimate relationship known as mentorship. The litmus test is honesty, trust and transparency.

Proverbs 27:6 [ESV] Faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy.

The litmus test will be revealed in our willingness to accept, value and respect each other’s opinion even if we choose not to agree. We don’t have to agree on everything and truthfully we will not agree on everything. That doesn’t make one person bad and one person good it just means we don’t agree. The reason this is a litmus test is because it will determine if you are in a relationship, friendship, leadership, or mentorship. The response of the person tells us the kind of relationship that we have and it sets the course for the future so what we have doesn’t have to be broken we just know how to set boundaries so that what we have isn’t lost. Some people just want a casual friendship and that is totally cool. Others want to have leadership and still others want to be mentored and are willing to allow you to disagree with them without anger or repercussions. It is not a bad thing. It is a good thing to recognize the kind of relationships that we do have so that we do not lose them altogether. The litmus test is the way a person responds when your opinion is sought and you share it honestly from your heart. Their response determines he level of relationship that you have. Recognizing the level of relationships will definitely determine the level of input sought or given by both parties. Here is the good news. Just because you discover you have reached a certain level in your relationship doesn’t mean you have to stay there. Both parties can elect to enter into a deeper more in-depth relationship. However I caution everyone strongly, you must be willing to put your relationship to the test with the litmus test of honesty, trust and transparency. Notice the scripture verse above faithful are the wounds of a friend; profuse are the kisses of an enemy. Very true! I have seen this work both ways. My wife and I were best friends before we were boyfriend and girlfriend, fiancees, and eventually husband and wife. I had to be willing to put our relationship on the line to take it to the next level. Luckily for me the gamble worked out and in April we will celebrate 20 years of marriage. I have also seen it work out negatively and it hurt my wife and I terribly. We were invited to be in fellowship with a couple in one of the churches we were on staff at. Invited into fellowship which turned into what we thought was true friendship maybe even a leadership/mentorship opportunity. It didn’t turn out that way. Trust was broken after we sat and listened to our “friends” concerns about certain issues in the church. We just listened like good friends do and expressed our condolences for the way they felt. Later we found out that this couple used our empathy as agreement and it almost cost us or job and relationship with our leader / mentor at the time. We felt so violated and broken. It caused us to put up walls and it also helped us realized that there are definitely levels in relationships. My wife and I have a tight inner circle of friends. It is not easy for us to let people into that circle because I have shared only one of many horror stories that almost cost my wife her faith in people. I am willing to do whatever it takes to protect my wife from those seeking the wrong kind of relationship with us. They must pass the litmus test before we take the next steps and it must seem right to us and the Holy Spirit. I know it sound harsh however, we are to be shrewd as vipers yet harmless as doves. Levels of relationships are just a reality in life. All relationships have potential to grow. The litmus test tells us if they are growing or even if we want them to grow. Some would argue with me and some may even be upset reading this blog. Let this be a litmus test for our level of relationship and I’ll let each one determine the level of our relationship for yourself. Honesty, trust and transparency are to litmus test. Whether you agree with me or not I hope we still share mutual respect and love. I wanted to share this blog with you today so that you can guard, evaluate, preserve, enhance, and grow the relationships God has blessed you with. Every person in our lives are a grace gift from God. We should celebrate every relationship whether it be fellowship, friendship, leadership or mentorship. Having clarity at the level we are at with each person will help us love them and love them well to the glory of God. It will also help us determine if we want to take our relationships to the next level or if we can just enjoy what we have been given. Be encouraged!

By God’s Grace

2 Corinthians 12:9 [ESV] But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

This weekend I received some news that left me totally brokenhearted and feeling a great sense of loss. My friend and brother in Christ went home to be with the Lord suddenly. Instantly my heart broke for his family. My wife and I dropped to our knees and began to pray God’s grace over his wife, kids, grand kids, family and friends. We prayed God’s grace because we know it is sufficient for us all. No words can describe the deep sadness in my soul. I asked myself, “How will those of us left behind get through this?” The answer, by God’s grace one day at a time, one minute at a time, one second at a time. When others asked me the same question I responded with the same answer. We will get through this tragedy and this life the same way we get through every day of this life by God’s grace. I am reminded of this scripture and I cling to it like a life raft in a stormy sea called life.

Lamentations 3:21-23 [ESV] 21But this I call to mind, and therefore I have hope: 22 The steadfast love of the LORD never ceases; his mercies never come to an end; 23they are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.

I pray God’s grace over my friend’s precious family and friends daily. I trust that His mercies are new every morning and that they will be sufficient to get us through the day. I am confident they will get us through this day and every day to follow until we ourselves see Jesus face to face. Life is filled with beauty and tragedy and we face both by God’s grace and with God’s grace. The life we live is by grace through faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Tomorrow I get the honor and privilege of speaking at my precious friend’s home going service. At first I asked myself, “How are you gonna do this? How will you be able to stand? How will you be able to speak?” My answer still remains the same, by God’s grace.

One thing I know to be true and I have lived it out one moment at a time. God’s grace is sufficient and His power is made perfect in our weakness. Friends we don’t have to try to be strong, we can trust in something and someone much stronger than ourselves, we can trust in the grace of a loving, all powerful, all knowing, all present, Sovereign God. I don’t know what you are going through and you don’t know what I am going through, however, we can both be confident that God’s grace is sufficient enough to carry us through now and forever. Be encouraged!

Ready, Set, Go!

Imagine the impact we could have in a city if the whole church decided to GO on missions trip. We don’t have to imagine it because this Sunday November 13 City on a Hill Church is doing just that through our “For The City” outreach. If you would have told me 18 months ago when we planted the church that our whole church would be ready, willing, and able to GO into the city as a collective body I would have thought you were dreaming. The dream is a reality and on Sunday 200 or 300 people will gather together to pray for each other and our city, worship Jesus, hear instruction from His Word, and then put what we just heard into practice. Before we get out into the city we will do and Acts 2 thing and love on each other taking care of the needs within the body through the Stuff Swap where people bring stuff they have to give away and bless others and take stuff they need for their families. Everyone is encouraged to bring bread, blankets, and socks. The bread will be for the families surrounding the Dream Center in the 13th Street Heights neighborhood of our city. We will gather at the Enoch Davis Rec. Center for parking and to meet the Dream Center team leaders. From there we will spread out and GO door to door passing out bread, invitations to the Dream Center, invites to Pastor Sam’s church, and most importantly the love of Jesus. We will pray for families or take prayer requests. After we are finished there we will gather at a couple of locations to be announced Sunday where our homeless brothers and sisters gather to pass out blankets, socks, and most importantly the love of Jesus. But wait there is more! That evening we will come back together at 5 pm for a Family Service with Praise and Worship, Communion, multi-media presentations, testimony, and a short devotional. I am so excited about this incredible day because we are partnering with sustainable ministries that we have been in relationship since we opened our doors. I am bursting with expectation at what does wants to do in and through City on a Hill Church. It is a huge gamble to ask a whole church to GO! I am trusting in God’s grace and the moving of the Holy Spirit to call, draw, and empower us for this mission into our city. I am believing this will be a catalyst for many within our congregation to break out of our comfort zones and to take on their Goliath. This is a God sized task and I absolutely love it. Planting City on a Hill Church was a God sized task and God has shown Himself faithful and strong. All glory goes to His name. City on a Hill Church is here because of the unmistakable, undeniable hand of God. I know this truth all to well, “The greater to giant the greater the glory God receives.” Sunday November 13 we have a giant task and a call to GO. Our God is greater, our God is stronger, our God is higher than any other. Our God is healer, awesome in power Our God, our God! If our God be for us than who can be against us? November 13 we take the battlefield to the glory of Jesus. November 13 we GO! Be encouraged!

Recognizing Seasons: Turn, Turn, Turn

Ecclesiastes 3:1-8 [ESV] 1For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: 2a time to be born, and a time to die;a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; 3a time to kill, and a time to heal;a time to break down, and a time to build up; 4a time to weep, and a time to laugh;a time to mourn, and a time to dance; 5a time to cast away stones, and a time to gather stones together;a time to embrace, and a time to refrain from embracing; 6a time to seek, and a time tolose;a time to keep, and a time to cast away; 7a time to tear, and a time to sew;a time to keep silence, and a time to speak; 8a time to love, and a time to hate;a time for war, and a time for peace.

Planting City on a Hill Church has reintroduced me to a very important and vital truth in life and ministry. Everything is seasonal! Everything has a season. Some seasons are longer than others. Nevertheless seasons come and seasons go without a doubt. Recognizing the season that we are in allows us know how to prepare and be the most effective. Winter, Summer, Spring, and Fall all require special preparation. Just as seasons in life and ministry require special preparations. If we don’t recognize the season or pay attention to the signs seasons are changing we may miss divine opportunities and divine alignments. In the short history of City on a Hill Church we have been very conscience of the season we are in. Being conscience of seasons of life and ministry have allowed us to prevent burn out in our Ministry Team members and in the life of our church. Recognizing seasons of ministry has prevented us from losing relationships for the sake of the ministry causing wanderers who feel used by the church. There is a caution in all of this to keep in mind, not everyone recognizes the season they are in both in life and ministry which means as leaders we must make hard calls. One of the toughest things to do as a leader is to call a meeting with a faithful volunteer or staff member and help them see the end of their season has come. We must pray for seasonal recognition in ourselves and those we lead praying and trusting the Holy Spirit to speak to them. I have had this pleasure multiple times in my short tenure as a lead pastor and church planter. I have had a key leader’s season come to an end and he came to me sharing with me his heart. I blessed him, thanked him and encouraged him. I am happy to report our relationship is stronger now than before. Glory to God. I have had the Holy Spirit speak directly to another key leader and to me separately on another occasion. Both of us were cautious and fearful that our relationship would be damaged. Thanks be to God through the Holy Spirit our eyes are open to seasons in life and ministry. When we met we both shared our hearts and realized the Holy Spirit was working behind the scenes the whole time. We both had played out worst case scenarios in our minds that never came to pass because of the leading of the Holy Spirit, the obedience of the individuals and the recognition that life and ministry happens in seasons. If a leader doesn’t recognize seasons in ministry we can become discouraged when someone’s ministry season is complete and the time to change has arrived. Our hope must be in Jesus. Our help must come from Jesus. Life can’t be all summer and no winter, no winter means no spring. Some things have to die in order for new life to spring forth. It is only natural that life and ministry happen in seasons. Everything has a season. Each season brings a beauty and brilliance all it’s own. Each season provides us with opportunities to see the beauty and brilliance of our God. Recognizing what season we are in will help us understand God’s grace in a greater fashion. I am so excited about the next season at City on a Hill Church! God has blessed us so richly with people who understand seasons in life and ministry. Recognizing seasons in life and ministry has preserved the unity and the effectiveness of City on a Hill Church. Recognizing seasons in life and ministry has preserved relationships personally and professionally. To everything turn, turn, turn. Turn the page! Recognizing seasons will help us turn the page. Be encouraged!
