Slay the Dragon

Morning Thought: Conflict is part of following Christ. Jesus’ archenemy will be your enemy. Like a fire-breathing dragon he will hurl fiery temptations toward you. He desires to consume you with lust and pride. Humility is the sword that slays this dragon. Humility submits to God and seeks shelter in God’s stronghold. In the Saviour’s stronghold you will stand firm and not be defeated. “But He gives a greater grace. Therefore it says, ‘GOD IS OPPOSED TO THE PROUD, BUT GIVES GRACE TO THE HUMBLE.’ Submit therefore to God. Resist the devil and he will flee from you” (‭‭James‬ ‭4:6-7,‬ ‭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 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).
