The Consumer & the Consumed

Morning Thought: There’s two kinds of Christians: the consumer and the consumed. The consumer seeks what others can do for them. They shop for churches and ministries like a bargain hunter looking for the latest deals. The consumed, however, are consumed with the Holy Spirit’s fire. They’re not desiring discounts. They want one thing: that Jesus would be exalted in them whether by life or death. Paul put it like this: “My earnest expectation…that with all boldness, Christ will even now, as always, be exalted in my body, whether by life or by death” (‭‭Philippians‬ ‭1:20‬ ‭NASB‬‬).

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 six to twenty. We are still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia ( We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School ( 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).
