Not an Optional Extra

Morning Thought: When you authentically read the Word it gives you the fear of the Lord. One of the reasons the church has lost its reverence for God is that we’ve treated God’s Word as an optional extra. We’ve even said things like, “You’re a ‘word church,’ but we’re a ‘worship church.'” There’s only one church and Jesus is Lord over her by his Word. Today, read the Word and grow in your respect for the Almighty. “Call them all together—men, women, children, and the foreigners living in your towns—so they may hear this Book of Instruction and learn to fear the LORD your God and carefully obey all the terms of these instructions” (Deut. ‭31:12‬, ‭NLT).‬‬

I was born and raised in Long Island, New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted a church and Bible School. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (www.holyfireschool.com). I love to write and encourage God's people. And something that many people don't know, I'm a DJ as well (aka DJ SOL Vibes).
