Not the End, Only the Beginning

New York Morning Thought: Today, we bury my mom and it just happened that my cycle of Scripture reading fell on Jesus’ burial. This shows me God’s timing is perfect. Jesus’ burial was not the end of him, it was only the beginning. His burial was like the planting of a seed. And a seed’s purpose is to bear much fruit, each fruit itself containing many more seed. The seed’s life may seem to end, but it gives rise to hundreds and thousands more. Last night, at the celebration of my mom’s life, a large group of people invited the real Jesus to really live in their hearts. The seed of my mom’s life is bearing much fruit because she believed. Jesus said, “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless a grain of wheat falls into the earth and dies, it remains alone; but if it dies, it bears much fruit” (John‬ ‭12:24‬, ‭NASB‬‬).

I was born and raised in New York. In 1999 I migrated to Australia, married my beautiful wife, Anna, and became a pastor. We are now the proud parents of four children ranging in age from five to eighteen. We are still pastoring a beautiful church in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (www.brisbanefire.com) and we lead an awesome Bible 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).
