First Things First

Morning Thought: I’m thinking about Mary and Martha today. Martha had such a beautiful heart––she welcomed Jesus into her home. However, she got distracted by being a host and forgot what was most important. What was first? Coming to a place of rest and listening to Jesus. Jesus wants us to enjoy his presence and Word. Sometimes when we hold church meetings and big events we also get distracted. Yes, there are preparations, but let us not lose focus. Jesus wants us to experience him. Let’s prepare before hand so that we can enjoy Jesus’ presence, sit at his feet and wash in his Word. “Martha welcomed Him into her home…Mary…was seated at the Lord’s feet, listening to His word. But Martha was distracted with all her preparations” (Luke 10:38-42).

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 eight to twenty-one. We’re still pastoring the same beautiful church, Church on the Park, in the the heart of Brisbane, Australia (https://www.brisbanefire.com). We also continue to teach our awesome students at Holy Fire Ministry Training School (https://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).
