My Joy and Crown

Morning Thought: A man or woman of God has no greater joy than God himself and his people. David sings, “As for the saints who are in the earth, they are the majestic ones in whom is all my delight” (Ps 16:3‬‬‬). In the same vein, Paul writes, “my beloved brethren whom I long to see, my joy and crown” (Phil 4:1). Why do they love God’s people in this passionate way? Because they have the Father’s own love in their hearts for his children. There’s no greater motivation to pray for one another and serve each other than this unrelenting, heaven-sent love.

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).
