About Me

Believing is easy.

Following is hard.

Follow me as I follow Him.

I’ll follow you as you follow Him.

Together, we will lock shields.

We will walk this walk.

We will fight this fight.

There’s a target on your back

No one told me when I got saved. They failed to mention it when I got baptized. I didn’t get the memo when I decided to renew my faith.

I didn’t know that there is a difference between believing Jesus and following Jesus.

No one told me that once I got saved there would be a target on my back.

No one told me how hard it would be to follow Jesus.

Fight the Good Fight (1 Timothy 6:12)

The [one] mistake I made as a Christian was thinking that everything would be fine after I got saved. I thought life would be easier.

I honestly thought He would just show up and everything would be fine.

Hard Right vs. Easy Wrong (Matthew 7:13-14)

If you’re doing everything you’re supposed to be doing in life and things still aren’t working out, don’t blame God – blame the enemy.

His goal is to wear us down and tired us out.

In his eyes, the best Christian is a “sidelined” Christian.

(ROE) Rules of Engagement (Ephesians 6:10-12)

In this battle, there is no “gray” space or neutral territory.

You are either advancing the kingdom of God or you’re supporting the kingdom of darkness.

Period. That’s it.

If you’re not going against the world, then you are going in the direction of the world.

If you’re not a target for the enemy, then maybe you’re on the same team.

If you’ve never seen adversity or opposition then maybe the enemy doesn’t consider you a threat.

However, if you’re feeling blessed don’t go looking for a fight.

Battle for this World (John 16:33)

The truth is this. God is neither for us or against us. He expects us to choose His side and His will, and align our life accordingly. Unfortunately, we want to be right and liked.

We seek to have our thoughts and opinions validated by others – more than we want to be righteous.

Equipping the Body (Ephesians 4:12-14)

I spent over 20 years of my life in the military equipping Soldiers. From office supplies and rations to military gear and weapon systems, without the right equipment you’re setting yourself up for failure. It doesn’t matter if it’s stateside training, combat operations, or daily struggles – if you’re not equipped to fight, you’re putting yourself, others, and the mission (your life) in danger.

Soldiers from each branch of the military are equipped to train and equipped to fight. Basic training, day one, you get your gear. Unit of assignment, day one, you get your gear. Deploying for combat, one of the first things you do is get your gear.

As a believer, when you wake up in the morning, what’s the first thing you do? Before you leave your home, what’s the first thing you do?

Take captive every thought (2 Corinthians 10:4-5)

“There is no neutral ground in the universe; every square inch, every split second, is claimed by God and counter-claimed by Satan.”

– C. S. Lewis

Equip. Train. Fight. Win. Repeat.

Enlist now.

Luke 9:23

If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself

and take up his cross daily and follow me
