The Three Legged Stool

When I was out to eat with Tyler. He brought something up that caught my attention. The Three Legged Stool. This represented the Christian foundation. Meaning, if you don't have this in your life, God will not move in your life.

1. Prayer
-Prayer is a necessity in your life. If you don't pray, God will not move

2.God's Word
-Meditation on the Bible, reading it is vital! If you do not do this, you lose fellowship with him and a calamity is about to happen.

3. Fellowship with believers.
-If you don't talk with other believers about what God is doing in your life and about life in general, pride will cultivate in your life. You will not be able to tell others your problems and or God.

Each point listed above represents a leg of the stool. If one necessity is missing, the stool or your life will fall! These three things must be in your life or something drastic needs to change.

In Prayers,

During this past Saturday I had a chance to talk with a friend who I am not very close to. Tyler is his name. It was great going out to eat with him just to talk. We started talking about some spiritual matters and you could feel God's presence. I've never talked about spiritual stuff with him before, and it felt so nice to have a friendship with him. God is so good.

It's so nice to be able to start building a friendship with him. That is one thing I regret not doing, building deep friendships with those around me. I hope you do not do the same.
God and my school!

It's been really neat being able to see God work in my school! God's presence is seen and felt clearly. Students who were not walking with God are now walking with Him. Seeking His face. What passion they have! What grace!

God's starting a revival in my school. It's so cool to be apart of! What grace He has shown us!
Proverbs 16:18 says, "Pride goes before destruction"

I recently witnessed this past weekend. I was part of a 3 on 3 basketball tournament this past Saturday. My team was clearly stacked. We had Tyler, a big man who can get rebounds like no one else and score like crazy. Luke, his stretchy arms ready to block anybody and has a nice shot. Kellen, super fast and with a killer shot. Myself, along the 3 point arc ready to fire. We were clearly stacked. We didn't practice, nothing. We were way overconfident. I stayed up late thinking, "Tomorrow will be no problem." The following day went by, we lost twice in the "season" to a team we clearly should not have. We made it to the championship against the team we lost to twice. I went in thinking, there is no possible way we are going to lose three times in one day...we got this. We lost the third game. Lost out prize. Pride was shrinking.

The team that beat us did not have as much skill as we did, but beat us and deserved the victory. Pride comes before the fall.

Benny Hinn and the gospel???

In my class, there are have been multiple comments regarding Benny Hinn. Some may he is legit, some say he is not.

My question is, why would someone who is doing the work of the LIVING GOD, tell people to pay him(Benny) and then he(Benny) will heal you. This goes against the gospel of Jesus Christ!

I hope you enjoy this video...

What is passion? Who are you passionate for? Is your life characterized by passion or by discontent? Is your life characterized by joy or by being lukewarm? Are you passionate for Christ or are you apathetic?

Do you see Christ as all satisfying?

A new pastor?

Today was a "happy-sad" day as my former pastor used to say. Pastor Mark Vroegop has stepped down from my church's leadership to pursue another pastor position in Indiana.

It's exciting to see how God is going to use his ministry and how God will impact the lives of others using Pastor Mark.

Although it's also sad. Our Pastor has taught myself and others in the church so much! "Will you be content with the grace of God?" "God will give you buckets of grace." Pastor Mark has blessed me as an individual, my church, and my family in spectacular ways. Throughout tribulations, his living example of, Christ is enough was so, IS SO, evident in the godly man of Pastor Mark Vroegop!

I will miss him!

In Prayers,

New Attitude part 3

Why New Attitude?

In this video the speakers from the New Attitude Conference explain "Why New Attitude" and their reasoning for coming back each year to speak.

This second video is the promo from last year, but it is by far my favorite video. The video gets me excited for the conference every time I watch it!
