I’m a control freak. However, one of the things that the Lord has been really pressing into me lately through His Word and a very godly counselor is that control is merely an illusion
#1 – I date her mother EVERY week!!! #2 – I am at home with my family nearly EVERY night
For some reason, the church is discouraged and denounced so often for having big dreams. Walt Disney had a mouse…A MOUSE… We (the church) have AN EMPTY TOMB, THE WORD OF GOD. The world should NEVER outdream God’s church! EVER!
We CANNOT be passive towards people who are far from God.
Too many men today make the assumption that they can work 12 hours a day, spend all of their spare time playing golf and/or pursuing their favorite hobby and sit and watch the same episode of Sports Center for hours
Do I trust the leadership of this church? Would I attend this church if I were not on staff?
Sometimes I don’t like what God commands me to do (and neither do you!) I am beginning to realize that God is always calling us closer to Himself…and the closer we get the more we die.
Your wife is not your servant … and God’s #1 call on her life is NOT for her to be impressed with you.

One of the questions often asked of me is, “how in the world do you stay so passionate? It seems like you believe every Sunday is going to be the ‘best ever!’”
You no longer use the Bible to learn more about Jesus and hear His voice…you are simply using it to find your next sermon.
A person who is absolutely convinced that they have nothing at all to change in their marriage is a person who is obsessed with making their marriage fail.
For some reason is has become taboo (especially in the church) to ask for help in your marriage
Preach on being spritually healthy and vibrant while neglecting my own health for the sake of the ministry
We are commanded by God that when we hear His voice to not harden our hearts. When people harden their hearts in Scripture it just doesn't go well for them.
God wants people to be saved … His church should want that as well! Ministry MUST point people to Jesus!
Often times I meet people in life and ministry that want to give up! Their marriage is in trouble. The church they are serving isn't moving as fast as they thought it would
Is there anything in my life that I am giving more time, attention and money to other than HIM?
When I begin to take on the "Messiah complex" and begin to think about how much the church needs me rather than how much I actually NEED CHRIST!
WHAT IF you were a non-Christian … and Christians treated you the way you treat non-Christians?
Dear Lord, please forgive us for allowing Apple to out innovate us! For allowing MTV to reach a generation that we've seemed to forget!
