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).

Born and raised on Long Island, New York, I migrated to Australia in 1999. That’s when I married my beautiful wife, Anna, and we planted our church and Bible School. We’re now the proud parents of four children, ranging in age from nine to twenty-two. We’re 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).
