The Father’s Embrace

Morning Thought: Through whose eyes are you seeing your Heavenly Father? You can see him through religion’s eyes, your culture’s eyes, your parent’s eyes, even your own eyes. But the only way to correctly see your Heavenly Father is through Jesus’ eyes. Jesus came from heaven to earth to show us the Father. In his story of the Prodigal Son, Jesus reveals to us a Father who longs for us to run into his arms. Today, come back to the Father’s embrace. “So he got up and came to his father. But while he was still a long way off, his father saw him and felt compassion for him, and ran and embraced him and kissed him” ‭‭(Luke‬ ‭15:20‬, ‭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).
