At Mount Bethel…

I was privileged to speak at Mt Bethel Baptist Church in Roxboro in August. What a time in the Lord we had! They are a beautiful group of worshippers. And their pastor is a wonderful servant of God. 

The Holy Spirit traveled with us – met us there – allowed us to be free in worship. And we served God together. We praised Him together. And everything was for God’s glory. 

My pastor, in his generosity, sent the choir, musicians and bus to accompany me. You see, it was just as much their engagement as mine for we were asked to come together. And, Pastor allowed it.  I do not think I’ll ever be able to fully explain, as a young minister, how very humbling that is. I still think about it and am humbled. For me, it’s one thing to go off to an engagement by yourself; it’s quite another thing to go off to preach with the church choir. I’m humbled by the numbers that drove the distance because somewhere in my mind, the enemy was telling me that only a few would show – most likely those that rode with me in my car. Not so. God sent all that were needed and then some and we had a great time in the Lord. It’s not about numbers – but I’m writing this out to show how the enemy will use even what should be a good event to try to raise doubt, fear and insecurities. 

But I’m getting wiser when it comes to dealing with my adversary in that arena. I’m getting to the point where now, I’m not so concerned about every aspect and detail. I’m trusting God more fully now knowing that if He has brought me to it, then surely, He’s going to see me through it. That’s the confidence I have with God now. And I wish for you the same!

Have you got your reservations?

It’s been a good while since my last post. I’ve been swamped by both the good and the bad of life. I’ve preached three sermons in four weeks time, lost a childhood friend to death, grieved in ways that surprised me, took an exam with a splitting migraine, gained a new Christian friend, injured my foot and subsequently I now have two muscle strains, attended an initial sermon and learned a new recipe…all while still working a full-time job.


See,  I’ve been away, but I’ve not been sitting on the couch eating bon-bons, wasting the time away. Instead, I’ve been attending to the pressing matters of life. And I can’t think of anything more pressing right now than to talk about our salvation in Christ. 


Maybe it’s because of all the preaching…
Maybe it’s because of all the loss…
Maybe it’s because of all the grieving…


…but I want you to know that without a life in Christ, your eternity is not secured. Yes, I am a Christian. Yes, I believe in the Trinity. Yes, I believe in Jesus as the Son of God. Yes, I believe that He is the only way to God. I don’t want you to be left out. So, my plea is this: make sure that you’ve secured your reservations in Heaven. And if you have any doubts to what I mean by that, please let me know. You can e-mail me here. And we can talk about it. I’ll answer any question you may have about your salvation to the best of my ability. And if I don’t know the answer, I’ll find out. Sound fair? 


Time is ticking…
