It’s pretty simple. L•O•V•E

Want to know what the entirety of the Bible, Christ’s message to humanity, and the purpose of Christianity is boiled down taken apart and made into its pure raw form? Well it’s honestly so simple that I feel pretty embarrassed to have been overlooking it for nearly the entirety of my Christian walk. I’ve heard it time and time again, but have taken it far too lightly. Please, if you could learn one thing over the course of the next year of your life, come to the understanding of this passage, begin to live out the command to sum up all commands. That command being as follows…

“Teacher, which is the great commandment in the Law?” And he said to him, “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind. This is the great and first commandment.,And a second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself. On these two commandments depend all the Law and the Prophets.”(Mathew 22:36-40)

That’s all there is to it. So simple? Absolutely! The simplest concept in the world. Love everyone and everything will be great. The “Golden rule”. So foundational that it transcends the Christian faith and is an intricate part of every major religion. So where is the problem? Everyone knows that, even the most secular of people acknowledge love as a powerful force. Turner, what on earth is the big deal, why are you even taking the time to write this, and my time to read this? It’s pretty simple actually, I’m doing it because I love you. Yes you, person reading this. Like a lot, like way more than I did a week ago. My concept of love has been rocked to its foundation in my short tenure at Liberty University. So if you would, allow me the time to relay a little bit of revelation into your head spaces. Let’s jump right into it.
                                                THE PROBLEM WITH LOVE
     Love today has become a tragedy. That’s right, love as we know it is flawed, the love we are so used to practicing is no more love than it is hatred. Those are some very bold statements, but let’s look into it, let’s take a first hand perspective into love in the hands of today’s culture. 
The first problem with love today is our mistreatment of the word itself. We as a culture sure do love to love things, we say things like “I love my car” “I love Netflix” “I love sweater weather” “I love chipotle” “I love what you did with your hair.” We have used the word love so often in our common speech that it has completely taken away the weight that the word can hold. Please, do not misunderstand what I am getting at with this point, stating that you love chipotle is harmless, but our misuse of the word is doing it a great disservice. Love is meant to be felt, to be a heavy word, to pull at your most primal of feelings, I would even argue that it is the most powerful single word in any language. It is our unintentional desensitizing of the word that has turned it towards a path of almost meaninglessness. Despite love’s foreseeable trajectory towards meaninglessness we as a culture are obsessed with it, of all songs ever written and produced, it is calculated that anywhere from 75-90% of them have been “love” songs. However, recently up to 90 of the billboard top 100 songs have been in one way or another about sex, this brings us to the next problem with love today.
Love has been perverted. Intimate love that is. Love between two people in a relationship has hardly any more meaning than a one night stand. Sex is perceived to be a prerequisite of love. I’m not talking premarital or infidelity either, I’m talking across the board. Just watch any major comedy produced over the last 10 years. Love is so easily thrown out the door in place of a funny sexual joke. I get it, that is an extreme hyperbolic representation, but keep this in mind, a culture produces what it values most. I’ve seen enough of what our culture has produced to see that we believe a bad sex life equals the end of a relationship and therefore the end of an intimate relationship, or even that if you love someone you have to seal the deal with sex. I’m not going to get into the topic of whether sex is good or bad, and I won’t deny that sex is a created fruit meant to come out of intimate love, but I know for a fact that our cultures twisted view of love and sex is heartbreaking, and without a doubt creating a monster of sex and rape culture that so many people seem to deny. Why wouldn’t our culture be that way though, don’t you see the entertainment that we are producing? To add insult to injury, the same demographic that is most outspoken against rape culture is the same demographic that this sort of entertainment markets itself to. On top of all of this perversion of intimate love, one of the most core problems with love today is that we seem to limit ourselves to see love as just an intimate relationship or desire to be intimate between two people. Rather love transcends even intimacy, love persists in all our relationships, bringing us to the third problem with love today.
The universal definition for loving ones neighbor has shifted to mean something completely different from what love really is. What little times we as humans go out of our way to love our neighbor rather than ourselves has come increasingly more and more to look like just another way to serve ourselves. That’s right, we have taken the idea of loving our neighbor and have flipped it on its head to make it appeal to our own selfish desires. What do I mean by this you might ask? Well let’s take a first hand look into what loving your fellow human looks like nowadays. Loving one another in today’s generation can be summed up as this, “If you do not agree with and fully support the way that I am living my life, and the things that I do, then you must hate me. Therefore, loving another person is acceptance of all lifestyles and the full support of any lifestyle.” Obviously there are boundaries to this acceptance and support of all lifestyles, but the boundaries are pushed back more and more. Moreover, the ramifications of this view on love has fundamentally changed the definition of love to become more similar to that of tolerance, actually it goes even further than tolerance and adds endorsing to its definition. In short, love today looks closer to be the endorsing and support of ones lifestyle. We are a generation that grew up telling the other kids in elementary class to shove off because it’s a free country and you can do whatever you want even if that means cutting in line for the water fountain. We even go as far today in our approach of the adult world to tell people that try to tell us we can’t do something that, and I quote, “only God can judge me.” (But how much would I have to hate you to not tell you that God is about to judge you pretty harshly and that there is away to escape a really really bad judgement. It’s like if I saw you in the street and a bus was coming your way and I chose to not warn you about the bus. No one wants to be hit by a bus.). Bringing us back to the original statement, how does a definition change of “loving thy neighbor” make it to serve oneself selfishly, either way love is love right? WRONG! In saying that love equals acceptance you are forcing others to love you or else face being called a bigot or hate monger. Thus feeding your own insecurities and creating for yourself a world in which one can not be wrong. This mindset is so attractive to our culture because it’s so easy, in order to feel loved and important all you have to do is just let other people live their lives and give them a thumbs up of approval, and if everyone does it, then everyone feels loved. Drawn out to its conclusion, if love played out that way you will never be satisfied because there is no effort in this kind of love. Eventually you will need people to put effort into loving you like you want to be loved and if someone’s lifestyle contradicted yours at all then conforming them to love you like you want to be loved is only causing you to contradict your idea of love. Someone will always get the short end of the stick. Love is not a liquid definition that applies to whoever is using it. Love is solid. Love must be steady not relative. Love sets a standard, it doesn’t waver. So let’s look past the problems with love and look into what love truly is.
                                                WHAT IS LOVE?

     “Love is patient and kind; love does not envy or boast; it is not arrogant or rude. It does not insist on its own way; it is not irritable or resentful; it does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love bears all things, believes all things, hopes all things, endures all things. Love never ends…” -1 Corinthians 13:4-7

Love is patient. Love will always wait for you to realize it’s overwhelming presence in your life. Rarely if ever do we remember that we are loved. Loved by our family, our friends, our peers, our teachers or bosses, even strangers. Any body you will ever come into contact with has the capability to love you, and may even be doing so without ever saying a word to you. Better yet, even if there was absolutely no one on this planet who loved you, not even your self, whether you believe it or not, you have a father in heaven who loved you to the grave and back, and is patient enough to wait for the day when you finally realize it. In our own practice of patient love, we must hold fast to that same principle exemplified by Christ. We must love any one and everyone, and be patient enough to keep loving them, until they realize themselves that they are loved. Love is patient.
Love is kind. Love will always affect you positively. Any time you are loved, you will leave with a sweet taste in your mouth. Love is healing to the bones. For does God not show this by his unyielding grace for us. Daily we deserve to be stuck down and to suffer for our sin, this is what we deserve. God However loves us, he is kind to us, he tells us sweet things in the quietness of our soul, his kindness cuts deep. Our daily love must be kind, we must use encouraging words, our love must hold effort in lifting up our fellow brothers and sisters. Love is kind.
Love does not envy. Love does not look out for itself, but loves for the sake of the recipient. It looks past what the recipient may or may not have, and loves regardless. Love has no gain on this earth, but can only give rather than receive. Love doesn’t compare itself to anything . God has nothing he needs from us, we have nothing to offer, yet he loves us. He does not envy our love, he loves for loves sake. He does not love so as to gain anything because there is nothing for him to gain. In the same way we must love others without envy. We must not love so as to gain something that someone else might have that we desire. This is how we must love because there is nothing that we could acquire that is of any meaning. We must not even love in order to be loved back, loving to receive love comes from an envious heart. Love does not envy.
Love does not boast. Love does not tell of its greatness. Love is a master in disguise as a servant. Love does not tell of its accomplishment, but tells of the accomplishments of others. The son of man came to serve not to be served. Jesus spent his time on earth with out boasting in himself, his powers, or his miracles, despite being the only one with the authority to boast. He displayed love without promoting himself, his promotion came as a result of what people saw in him, rather than what they heard. In the same way, we must love without being boastful. In all the ways in which we love, we must not do so as to elevate our own standing. We must love with hearts set on raising others to be better than ourselves, and ignore our own urge to be seen as great. Love does not boast. 
Love is not arrogant or rude. Love does not see itself as better than anyone. Love does not choose to love some but not others. Love loves all people and sees itself as less than these. Did Christ not love us in the same way. Not once did he see us as what we really are, unworthy sinners, rather he saw us as people in need of love and a savior. In the same way we must love without being selective. All people deserve love, despite their backroad, appearance, ideologies, or attitudes. All people desire to be loved and we must not deny them of it. Love in a way so as to see yourself as the one undeserving to give love, rather than they as undeserving to receive it. Love is not arrogant or rude.
Love does not insist on its own way. Love is not forceful, love is a force in itself. Love does not need to make people conform to its ways, love shows people the way. Love leaves everyone with a choice, love and be loved, or live in ignorance only to die ignorantly. In much the same way God shows this kind of love to us. God has given us a choice to experience love. He has created us to be loved, yet he did not create us to be forced into anything. God gave us a choices, and the idea that God shows us love by giving us the ability to practice the very things that communicate to him that we hate him, says it all. We too must love with this kind of openness. However we must be warned in our approach of open love, for yes, love is filled with acceptance and tolerance, but it is not limited to it. We must love without expecting others to conform to our ways, but must never forget to remind those we love what love really can do, and continue to point others to the freedom found in it. Love does not insist on its own way.
Love is not irritable. Love does not get annoyed at the little things, it does not sweat the small stuff. Love is like water off a ducks back, love sheds all outside noise. God exemplifies this kind Of love in the way that he treats us so graciously. If God decided to wipe me out every time I irritated him, I would have never made it past a week on this earth. In the same way, we must be gracious to those we love. Do not allow the little things others will do to you to pile up and weigh against you. Allow the irritations that you encounter in your pursuit of love to bounce off your skin. remember that the enemy will try to bring you down with the most insignificant things and that those things are the things you’ve got to be most aware of. Love is not irritable.
Love is not resentful. Love does not become bitter with the hand it has been dealt. No matter how badly love has been hurt by someone love will never hold anger toward another. Love forgives, love is made for reconciling people, it does not drive a wedge between others. Jesus is the perfect example of loves ability to not hold resentment. On the cross, when Jesus had every right to be mad at the world and at humanity, he chose to forgive the very people who put him on the cross. We must then love others without holding any of the past against them. We may have every reason to hate an individual, but love works best when it can pass the test of a fiery heart. Real love is loving those whom are hardest to love. Anyone can love those dearest to them, but a person who practices Christ like love, loves the one person that has hurt them the most. Love is not resentful.
Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. Love will not be moved, manipulated, or altered. Love is love, real love holds real truth. In the same way that there can only be one truth, there can be only one love. Love is not something that was created, rather love has always existed. Love is the sole reason humanity exists in the first place. Therefore, any attempt to alter the perfection that is love is an utter failure. Love has never been wrong, therefore it can not even associate with wrongdoing. One can create for themselves their own idea of truth and love, yet they will never experience freedom in real truth and love because a flawed ideal of those two concepts causes one to become a slave to their own desires. Love does not contradict itself and rejects false doctrine. Love celebrates that which is good and exalts the good found in others while looking past (but not ignoring) those qualities which are bad. God shows this quality in his holiness. He is perfect and without fault, He is truth, He is love. He has nothing to do with the wrong or the evil in our lives, rather all good things that exist in us and in the world are from God. God rejects our sin and celebrates The Holy Spirit in us and gives us freedom and love through Him alone. We must then show our love by the way of exhaling the good found in others and pointing them toward the qualities that are positive. While at the same time rebuking the sin inside them and pointing them towards the direction of repentance. To love in this way, look at your fellow human and recognize the good in each one of them, not being ignorant to their flaws, but acknowledging that all are flawed and all are in need of love. For did God not create everyone and did Jesus not die for ALL, therefore we must acknowledge that all need love no matter their sin and all can come to the realization of truth. We must have zero tolerance for the sin inside ourselves, yet remind ourselves of the freedom that has already been afforded to us through Jesus Christ. To show this kind of love one must be grounded in truth (being weary of falling into legalism) and live by that truth. Love does not rejoice at wrongdoing, but rejoices with the truth. 
Love bears all things and endures all things. Love is meant for endurance. Love can take any blow that this world can throw at it. Love is a shelter that we can hide behind and take refuge in. Love is not weak, it doesn’t allow the evils of this world to bring it to its knees. In the end love will withstand. Much the same way, Jesus proved this quality of love in how he bore the torture of the cross, and the weight of our sins that came upon him while nailed to that cross. Only by the love that He had for mankind was Jesus able to take up the cross and ultimately bring us to the Father. We must then find our strength in love to bear all things that the enemy will through at us, sickness, hurtful people, even death can all be overcome only by the power that is found in love. Allow love to be your stronghold, there is rest in love. Love bears all things sand endures all things. 
Love believes all things and hopes all things. I’m going to take the time to elaborate on this one first. Here in the scripture this one tends to throw people off. You might even be convinced upon first glance that this is a contradiction within scripture. However the purpose in Paul’s stating this is not to say that in love you must believe anything one says as truth, as we know by now love and truth are unalterable. What Paul is communicating is that love is the opposite of cynicism. Love believes the best in others. Love sees the potential found in each individual and strives to see them reach it. Loves believes that you can accomplish your goals and dreams. Love believes that all people have the ability to do good, that all people are capable of love and deserving to be loved. Love is not negative, pessimistic, or cynical. God exemplifies this love in how we are seen as saints when we believe in the message of the Gospel. We must therefore love with open eyes to the good in others. Believe that anyone and everyone is worthy of love and deserving of it. find the best in everyone, believe that even the worst of the worst have. Some form of good in them, for are they not also created in the image of God. Love believes all things and hopes all things. 
This is what love is. God is love. To truly love, one must have to emulate God. We have been wired to love from day one of humanity when we were made in Gods image, made to emulate him. Similar to the beginning of humanity, first we were made to love God, then we were introduced to the idea of Loving another person. We can not even begin to understand real love until we start to turn our focus onto loving God. It is only then after being in a loving relationship with our creator, sustainer, redeemer, savior and revealer that we can begin to love others. Seek out God in his Word. Press into the book of truth regularly. How can we expect to give love if we are not filling ourselves up from the spring of love that God has given us. Remind yourself every day of the Gospel of Christ. Draw life and encouragement from the peace that is found in Christ’s life death and resurrection. Remind yourself that the God that is love loved you enough to lower himself, take your sins upon himself, and die a bitterly cruel death on your behalf. Remind yourself that you are free, you can live out truth, and you can be loved a perfect love that allows you to go and give that love to others. Love will never be easy, we are incapable of it on our own. Real love is possible through Him who is love, and if practiced continuously and intentionally will transform every aspect of your very being, your life as you live it, and the lives of those you come into contact with. So I beg you, go,move, love furiously. Love passionately. Love truthfully. Love freely. Love constantly. Love unadulterated. Love unceasingly. Love. LOVE. LOVE! LOVE NOW! Remove yourself from the equation. Allow God to love you, he is all the love you will ever need. For the rest of your life, love like the person you are sitting next to’s life is on the line. It is! One simple act of love could mean the difference between their spending eternity in heaven or hell. LIVE LOVE. GET UP AND SHOW SOMEONE LOVE RIGHT NOW, DON’T WAIT, SHOWER THE ONE PERSON YOU WOULD PREFER TO NEVER SEE AGAIN WITH THE SAME KIND OF LOVE THAT GOD IS SHOWERING UPON YOU AT THIS VERY MOMENT. To sum up the law, prophets and the scriptures, love the lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength. The next step, is to love your neighbor as you love your self or even as Christ loves you.
Love,
God’s humbled and broken servant 

Assessment 

I consistently find that whenever I take personality, occupational, or self assessment tests, I always come out of them with a feeling of disappointment. Mainly this feeling is a result of being placed inside of a box. I know who I am, I know what I was made for, and I know my ultimate end goal for life. That goal is to “Go therefore and make disciples, baptizing them in the name of The Father, The Son, an The Holy Spirit.”(Matt 28:19) Everything outside of that goal for me is just a side project. Consequently that feeling of everything being a side project and having my mind set on more eternal thing puts me in a tough spot. It puts me in a tough spot because when most people toil and labor and distress and plan over what it is God has in store for them, I am in a constant state of “going with the flow” I tend to live in a “whatever You have for me Lord” mentality. This mentality does however put me at a disadvantage to those who toil over their future because often times I come unprepared or uninformed over what it is exactly I am doing and I have to play catch up when I am already neck deep in the waters of the stream I am “flowing” with (example: Coming to Liberty). But this brings us back to my original point. Rarely do I pay to much attention to the direction in which personality tests point me in because I don’t let them dictate my future, heck, I don’t even let myself dictate my own future, my “path” can change at any given moment. This is best exemplified by my decision to come to Liberty. The reason I came to Liberty was; not because I wanted to; not because it had anything better than the next school could offer me; not for the location; not for the social environment; not even for the education. I came here because I had put my trust in the Lord and faithfully waited on him to provide. First he provide my hasty acceptance; then he provided an actual reality of going; then he did something crazy and he took away every good reason I had for coming in the form of my best friend and the comfort I would have had in his being here; then he provided with a clear direction as to what he wanted me to do in the school and the people he had the intention for me to impact; then almost immediately after placing my heart in this school he took away my chance of going in the form of finances; and finally he provided me with the money I needed in order to go right as I had lost hope and only 3 weeks before the start of the school year. All this to prove that all I had to do was be patient. I never worried. In my time of seeking out and being accepted into a school, I knew God would provide with a direction. In the time of weighing my options, I knew God would place my heart in a school. In my time of financial disarray with the clock winding down, I knew God would provide and even if he didn’t, I was content in going somewhere else. What does any of this have to do with whether or not I agree with a career assessment test? Well to answer that let me go back to my original statement. I DON’T LIKE BEING PUT IN A BOX, AND NEITHER CAN YOU EVEN TRY TO PUT GOD IN A BOX! So if I am to be a vessel for the treasure that is of the Gospel and Christ’s love for us, then I know that God can use me by any means necessary. Never in the entire book of the bible did God call on the most qualified person, rather He qualified the person in which he called to do His great work. Therefore I end with this, never limit yourself to what a test written by man tells you, rather “know that the testing of your faith (by God) produces steadfastness. And let steadfastness have its full effect, that you may be perfect and complete lacking in nothing.”( James 1:3-4)   
This was a paper I wrote for a class, but I liked it, and also I have been wanting to post on this for a long time and had writers block, so I figured this should suffice. 

It feels good to write.

Trees to People

Shall I compare it to a forest? 

Like a late summers forest in early September , an unsettling wind of change was blowing through the trees.

You could spend an entire day in this lush green forest, and never know that all the trees were rotting on the inside. You would never see the pain that each tree was suffering from. All you could see is the bark and the leaves. Unlike most forests, this one was assembled, each tree served a particular purpose for the benefit of every other tree in the forest; However, they did not yet know their purpose. The trees all bore their best appearance from the seasons before, and figured that it would be enough to convince the other trees that they had no rot on the inside. Despite the trees efforts to conceal the rot, they all desired a small bit of change, Some more than others, but even the thorn trees knew they had to give in to change just a little. So they changed themselves, turning their leaves from green to red, yellow, and orange. The trees convinced each other that they had changed, they convinced themselves that they have changed, and they had, but only on the outside, the rot continued to fester inward. The trees were working too hard to maintain their beautiful appearance of transformation, but it began to take its toll on them. The trees could no longer maintain their state of being. The wind blew too hard, and the dryness and rot began taking its toll. One by one the leaves fell as each gust plucked the leaves away from the trees. Exposing branch by branch, the surface layer began to unravel. Their leaves spewed out across the floor, all the trees could do was look down in pity at their naked exteriors. They had lost all their comfort and protection, and winter was fast on its way.

Winter hit with a harsh bitterness. Frost covered the entirety of the forest. Colder than any winter they have ever experienced before, the trees had nowhere to look but to each other as they huddled for warmth, and the sun which was always there giving them life despite how cold the wind blew. Miserable from the bitter cold, the trees still had yet to expirience their first snow storm. The storm hit fast and the storm hit hard, broad siding the unexpecting trees. The trees were now covered in a heavy white blanket of snow. Most trees learned to bend with the weight of the snow, to give ground to its mighty load. However, some did not. Some fought against the snow, staying stiff and firm. Those trees snapped under its immense pressure, and were swept away from the forest entirely, but only to be planted somewhere else. The trees began to lean more and more to the sun as it was the only thing sustaining them. The trees even began to appreciate the snow, because as it melted from the sun, it’s life giving water sunk down into their roots and made its way into the core of its trunk, where it attacked at the rot. It was through the winter of brokenness that the trees truly began to change. 

Then came the rain. Downpour after downpour, the trees became filled with life, so much so that they began overflowing and giving life to the other trees in the forest. The trees began to learn their purpose for one another, they began to build each other up, producing fruit that each tree could delight itself in. From this fruit, the trees began sprouting leaves again, but more than that, they blossomed flowers on every branch. The trees were free from all their hidden rot, all the rot on the inside was moved out, so that the other trees could come to the aid of each ones rot. The thorn trees from the beginning were now magnificent oaks, and became home to bluebirds and rainbow butterfly’s. A vine became entangled around the base of every tree connecting them all. This vine was grand and continuously gave life of which each and every tree could always draw from. From the vine the trees would alway be connected, for the vine is the Link that will connect them from every corner of the world. It is the vine that makes the next chapter bearable. You see the trees have been commissioned, they must leave the forest, the Lion of the forest has directed them to part ways, to bring the vine to new forests, to go into barren desserts without any life, and to bring life to them. So the trees are being uprooted, preparing themselves to root down in a new home, to bring the vine to other trees, to point to the sun as the sorce of life, to weather the storm with new trees and old trees, and to follow the Lions commands. 

The most peculiar part about this entire story is this. Somewhere along the way, after starring so long at the sun in the bitterness of winter, the trees no longer saw each other as trees, but rather as people. They no longer saw the sun, but rather saw The Son of Man. The life that they drew from all year not only got rid of the rot, but changed every fiber of their DNA, turning them all from trees, into people.

From the mouth of Gods humbled and broken servant, 

The end…

But not for long, a new chapter is being written in our hearts.

Jesus

Please, allow me to tell you what this entire past year has been about, it is the most simple thing in the world, yet also the most mind boggling complex idea to wrap your head around. It is something so magnificent that everyone’s entire existence hangs on whether we believe in it or not. Nothing compares, nothing. This is what I know as truth, this is truth, absolute. If you know me at all, than you know that I can write forever, but this is not about what I have to say, it isn’t about me any longer, it is about this one thing. So pay VERY close attention your life may depend on it, I know mine does. Read closely, really process what you are about to read, ingest it, sleep on it, and ask me any questions that may arise. Read all of it, don’t forget the theme, and look out for the lesson being told. Here it goes.

Called To Greatness

God has called me to do a great work for His Kingdom. For the first time in my life I have found passion. God has called me and prompted me to start a ministry immediately when I get to college. Not to wait till I become established on campus, but to make an impact within my first year there. A ministry?!?!? Are you serious God? I am far to little to do such a big thing. It was at that thought, the thought of a faithless main, that I stopped myself in my tracks and realized my unbelief in what God can do through me. I have been living so minimally for the Kingdom for so long that I have forgotten just what kind of a God I serve. A God that I can draw endless strength from, a God that I can completely trust to accomplish any thing. It is this God that has placed within me a call to go and make a giant mark on my campus as soon as I can. He has convicted me through the spirit to trust in him and take a risk. Because of this exhilarating sensation of being called to such a task, I have uncharacteristicly written down and structured a vision for my ministry. For the first time in my life, I have put in real mind stretching effort and preparation into a singular project, and this has only happened through Gods power, all within the span of one week. My idea is still very young and in great need of care and nurture, so I will give it the nurturing it needs. 

Now to put it all in perspective for those of you curious as to what exactly I am talking about, allow me to explain me, my plans for the fututre, and my plans for the ministry. I am planning on going to Liberty University next year for college. The intrigue I have in Liberty is that it is a huge leap of faith and in just about the most unsafe risky option I have right now. Now you might be asking, “isn’t Liberty a private Christian school, shouldn’t it be a safe place to go?”  Yes, it is a Christian school, but like anywhere on this earth it has its flaws and also it is about as much of an unknown for me as any place in this nation. One of the things about Liberty is that it is a Christain school that by all accounts is full of many shells of Christians. Those Christains who claim Christ, but do not know Christ and live in hedonism, works based righteousness, and flat out apathy towards the gospel. It is these “Christians”, the ones that do not know that they need to be saved that God has placed on my heart. What my goal at this school is, is to become an eye doctor, to open the eyes of these people to the clear vision of the gospel. It was after wrestling with the fact that these people need the gospel as much as any nonbeliever (which some would argue that are) that I then was broadsided with this calling to begin my own ministry not affiliated with the school, and to transcend a culture of brokenness. The details of what my ministry will look like are being ironed out, and if you are even more curious or interested at all in my new passion please have a conversation me about it, and I would love to show you my plans, and hopefull you will be willing to give me insight or encouragement. This is where I stand, this is where God is directing my steps. I could talk about this for pages and pages, but I will leave it at this. I will not quench the Holy Spirit. I will do what God tells me to do. I will. Be faithful. If greatness is what I have always wanted to achieve, I need to start doing great things. Finally, 1 Samuel 14:6 puts it all into perfect perspective, “Come, let’s go…. Perhaps the Lord will be on our side.”

From the mouth of God’s humble and broken servant.
