This past weekend we spent preparing for a funeral for one of our church family. It seems no matter how long I am in the ministry, I never get used to them. I wonder if this isn't God's plan all along? We know that death is a part of life. It is something that sooner or latter touches everyone, whether it be a friend acquaintance or family member. But I somehow don't think God wishes us to accept death as a status quo option.
There's a song which has the words "I don't want to go through the motions, I don't want to go one more day, Without Your all consuming passion inside of me, I don't want to spend my whole life asking, What if I had given everything, Instead of going through the motions"? by Matthew West.
By His grace we can live a life that leaves a cross shaped mark on the world. Our lives don't have to be lived in quite desperation asking what else is there? Rebel against death by asking for His life and giving Him ours! He said He would by His Grace!

I can't believe I actually published a book! Below is the link where it can be purchased. All profits will go to Discovery Church.
It all started when I understood God's Amazing Grace! I knew that Jesus died for me and that by his death and resurrection I was made right with God, but the whole idea of living in that grace had escaped me! I wonder how many believers share that story? We know that Jesus gave Himself for us on the cross, but living in His resurrection power seems to be just out of reach. That was my experience. Hopefully this book will begin to explain His grace, but it's not the final authority by any means. If you get the book, please check out the scriptures found there for yourself, in your bible. His word is and always will the final authority. God Bless and Grow in His grace!

Finally done!
