It Gets Measured Back to You!! MATTHEW 7:2

There is a great and monstrous valley that must be crossed in the Christian faith to become an “effective evangelist”. Those of you who know me know that I like that word “effective evangelism”; I believe there is not a higher achievement. In my kind of world many goals are very tempting and alluring but this one goal seems to be the hardest to achieve. Evangelism depends on my actions but all the while it depends upon how well I can depend upon God.

The other night I had one of my best friends over; He is a true  exmple of a lover of God and thankfully he is now the worship leader at his church. Just recently he has been being brought over the chasm from legalism to liberation. He shared many of his newly acquired thoughts about the way he perceived others, we spoke long and hard about this beutiful part of the path that he was entering. Christ came and lived with and was friendly towards the sinners and tax collectors, he won them over by his love and they followed Him. How many times have you loved a sinner enough to have them even want to be in the same room with you.

Legalism towards others and towards yourself is like a contagious disease. When you in your faith look on others like they are different you hinder them and you hinder yourself. Jesus says, “With the judgement you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you”. Most people naturally look at this scripture as in the future, you will be held to the extent of the law you held to others and God on judgement day will sentence you accordingly. That may be true, but I believe the present interpretation is more important. That if you hold your friend in judgement now looking down on them now, then God will hold back the liberty you would be getting. In other words God wants you to show his love and mercy to all, so in turn he can give you more of His love and mercy.

Earlier I shared that this is the great valley to cross to becoming an “effective evangelist”, I believe that the teaching of Christ climaxing in Matthew 7:1 is a founding doctrine of the true faith. The problem is that it seems to be the most eluding doctrine to hold under our belts, because we in our selves are not capable of walking in it. The truth is that to truly be the children God created us to be we must be full of the spirit of the Father. He is the one whose love sent Christ to the earth, He is the one capable of seeing what the world needs to hear. He is the one that is trying to win the heart of Christ’s bride.

Today revisit the sermon on the mount camp out in Matthew 5:1-11 then read Matthew 7:1-5 and pray that the lord would open your eyes to the importance of this teaching.

May you see Gods patience in the people in your life that you would much rather write off. May you have the patience to see that somehow God is working in that relative who seems to show no sign of repentance. May he give you an abundant blessing as your heart opens to receiving forgiveness.

The devil is on a Short Leash

We have a wonderful friend who has recently come to the Lord, and who has been being delivered from a life full of heartaches. It’s wonderful to feel the healing that happens every time we pray together. It’s amazing. But what’s strange is that within the first few months of her life in Christ, her landlord is evicting her from her house. Week after week she comes to our prayer meetings with her eyes full of light and love. It has been such a remarkable testimony to all of us. But what is it about a trail that helps us figure out this life in Christ?

Well, we know that after Christ was baptized he was led by THE HOLY SPIRIT into the wilderness to be tempted by the devil. It’s as if there is a going away party from the worldly ways that must take place. Like a kind of stripping away of what you know to be good and an introduction into what you now know to be true.

When I first began my life in Christ I fell off of a ten speed bike knocking out teeth, breaking my jaw, and causing a bad facial hemorrhage. This accident caused financial trouble that really demanded that I choose who I would turn to. I remember the moment in the midst of all this heartache when I chose to bless God for it and surrender more of my heart. It was the best day of my life; The circumstances resulted in the greatest spiritual perspective I had ever had.

And although I did gain a perspective that I hadn’t had before it seems that trails and tribulations seemed to come afterwords. Last week I had a coworker speak to me in a rather harsh way that made me mad. It reminded me and showed me things in myself that other wise would never have been uncovered.

James, who was also known as “camel-knees” in the early church, said “Consider it pure joy my brothers and sisters whenever you face trails of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance.” Wow, is that an amazing statement or what. When I was younger I would read that scripture and think that that was a way to help us endure trails by telling us to readjust our thoughts. In the same way I would read “pray for your enemies.” These ideas seemed so far fetched so intangible, so unrealistic. It was as if they are lofty ideas that show us our own failure. And to the religious and the unbelieving I expect these perspectives have become fact to them.

But, here is where the Holy Spirit in us can show us the truth. In the book of Job the devil came to God and asked permission to test Job. That means that Satan only could do what God allowed him to do. So in essence Satan was a tool in that case to test Job and prove his faith in God. I believe that this same principle is in effect today that God allows trails to come your way so that you will become a stronger individual.

When received as truth there is a liberty that this concept brings. That whatever happens to me, God means it all for good (Romans 8:28). There is no problem that is not understood and governed by God himself. But this does not mean that well “I will just live through hell and because God is knowledgeable it will be alright”. We have the opportunity to be children of God and to be co-laborers  with him. When he sees us drifting from His presence, He allows uncomfortable situations to drive us to his presence. When he sees the future what you will endure in the coming years as a couple he will allow small problems in your relationship so you will have to work out some of the inconsistencies that will bring you strength and cohesion, that if not dealt with now, later might rip you apart. When you endure a painful situation and overcome it, and then a few months later meet someone with the issue you previously encountered and can now speak comfort and truth into their lives, that’s God being infinitely wonderful (2 Cor.1:4).

Christ says that ,

“Why do you call me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ and do not do what I say? As for those who come to me and hear my words and put them into practice, I will show you what they are like. They are like a man building a house, who dug down deep and laid a foundation on rock. When the flood came, the torrent struck that house but could not shake it, because it was well built. But those who hear my words and do not put them into practice are like a man who built a house on the ground without a foundation. The moment the torrent struckthat house, it collapsed and its destruction was complete.”

The torrent is going to hit your house, whether you have your foundation on Christ or not. In Christ we can be unshaken and unafraid of any thing that comes our way.

Questions About the Unseen

What is the deal with spiritual disciplines that make such a difference in the spiritual life? What is happening in the unseen when I surrender my heart to God the Father through the Holy Spirit by the blood of Christ Jesus?

About a month ago I had a bout with the disciplines where somehow I backed off for one reason or the other and immediately I felt the ball drop in my life. It was as if I had maintained such a stark disciplined life that it was like I was a secret agent in deep cover and I made some kind of mistake that made me become venerable to attack. What I have learned in the past is that if I want to lift a certain amount of weight I must train my body to be able to do that. I must fulfill the required strength training to provide the results I desire. I believe that the same applies to our spiritual lives that if God is calling you to a certain ministry then he will need you to put yourself in a position to gain the spiritual “strength” required to achieve the task.

But how does this all play out theologically? How does this principle relate to the unsaved? Or to those who knew Christ but have turned away? If by the blood I am free from the bondage of sin why does it seem sometimes that there is a war going on over my actions? If Christ destroyed the works of the devil on the cross why is it as if I am in the middle of warfare? To what extent am I empowered to push back the darkness? With the right perspective, faith and posture can I blanket a prayer for total regions and the result will be mind-blowing?

I have heard the voice of a demon coming from a person as I entered a Harris Teeter after an extremely intense prayer meeting and it threw me back. The unseen is real maybe more real that we want to imagine. But what does it look like? What does the thrown look like and the angels?

I’m glad we serve a mysterious God who is more real that the vocabulary we can configure to doubt him.   

Play Actors and The Play Church

Matthew 13:31-32

He told them another parable: The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed, which a man took and planted in his field .Though it is the smallest of all the seeds, yet when it grows, it is the largest of garden plants and becomes a tree, so that the birds come and perch in its branches.

Last summer I began my life with my new wife at our home near Charlotte, and for the first time in my life I understood why all those old men take such pride in there yards. I still consider myself relatively young, 27, but when your eyebrow hair starts growing crazily and your nose hair comes out of your nose like an wild bush, you might be getting old. At least these have been the signs that I am getting old.

So I planted some grass seed and put some hay on top of it and I got some rare and expensive sunflower seeds and planted them in a flower bed I that I had prepared for the seeds. Now mind you this was the first thing that I had planted in my life. So everyday at or around dusk I faithfully went outside and water these seeds. I waited and watered, and then waited…. and watered; Then I got impatient and went out and bought more seed and plant those and went back to my routine.

The sunflowers came up and they were beautifully tall and dark red and the grass came up, and strangely enough I had scattered too much seed because you could not even run a rack through it with out tearing it out of the ground. So this was year number one in my career as a “gardener” if you will, but the experience was an amazing one.

What I figured out more than anything else was that the circumstances that I had control over where not enough to control the outcome. In my desire to control the outcome I really messed everything up and waisted a lot of my time and a lot of water.

Paul writes in regard to ministry that John plants the seed, Apollos waters, but it is God who brings the growth (Author’s paraphrase). What a mystery the kingdom of heaven is… It’s not in our control.

I woke up early this morning and the above parable from Matthew 13 was on my heart. And then I went back to sleep and three hours later I woke up again and it was still there with basically the following interpretation.

The kingdom grows like a tree in the middle of the garden for birds to perch in. It is not fully understood how and why its branches stretch the way they do, they just grow with there own purpose. In the 21st century anyone can explain why this is the way it is but none of us can control it. Just like my experience in my front yard it is just out of my hand. You see it seems that most of us today would rather have fake plants in our yard and grass rolled out in our yard than have to depend upon “nature”. This is the way we like our churches… we would rather have token “prayers” to God that sound pretty, than actually call out to the one who is always present. We would rather pull a sermon that will keep people comfortable than to preach the “word of the Lord” for the people. Because let’s be honest here, its messy, it requires lots of “blood, sweat and tears”. But I believe that just like sunlight, soil, and water are required for a plant to have a chance at growing, the church cannot have a chance at being the Church without devotion to prayer, doctrine, and  community. 

But you see we have turned this formula into a religion where we think we have the “ball” in our court; So we can manipulate every situation to our own comfort. This is extremely dangerous. 

A young lady at work recently apologized to me for “cussing in my presence”. This absolutely pissed me off. I was not upset at her, but I was upset at the shallow religious people who had helped shape her understanding of Christianity into a manipulation of actions. The following day I had a “divine” opportunity to speak with her about this and I said as follows…”Your cussing doest have SHIT to do with my salvation in Jesus Christ” I then began to speak, under what I believe to be the anointing of God, explaining to her that Christianity is a lot bigger than my or her cussing and even her and my existance. 

You see people have got so tied up in religous Chritianity that it has become something that even effects the unsaved around us. I believe that the Jesus of the Gospels loved the tax collector and sinner. I believed he loved them.  He LOVED them  He went and ate with them and told them stories that they liked to hear and joked with them. And in the process he presented the love of the Father in grace and truth. 

Today I stand looking towards the tree that stands in the garden that grows high and strong and I pray the I will be used to help it grow. I will not settle for a plywood decoration from a fifth grade Sunday School play. I want the real thing, I want a real Church and I won’t settle for anything else until I die or am killed.        

This blog is dedicated to Jonathan Martin and Al Sergal two guys who have helped shape my understanding of Christian thought.

The Christmas Story (The Pearl of Great Price)

Isaiah 42:1-2

Here is my servant whom I uphold My chosen one in whom I delight I will put my spirit on Him and He will bring justice to the nations He will not shout or cry out or raise his voice in the streets.

Christ the soon coming King, as us evangelicals like to pronounce came first in the manger. I’m sure the religious people of His day were saying things like “Just when our Messiah comes”… Or “everything will be alright when the Messiah comes”… But Christ Jesus came and only the few noticed. A group of astrologers/sorcerers, a number of farm animals, and a few shepards who no one knew or had any influence in the community.

He came alright and in the first embark into ministry He was led into the wilderness to tempted, and one of the temptations was to throw himself from the Temple and create a miracle to pronounce His presence. But this was not the way. He did not come to build a mega church and have everyone like him. He came to twelve and one of the twelve and the religious leaders killed him.

Christ has come again this Christmas season to those of us who can see him. In fact he comes everyday on the margins of our lives. He waits for us to recognize Him… to call on Him. Just like the parable of the pearl of great price, He waits in the fields of our lives each day desiring to be discovered.

May His simple and pervasive (current) glory be revealed to you today. Just as Paul proclaims all of creation screams of Him. Lord we need you.. we know you are here. Not a one time thing of coming, dieing and leaving; But we believe your purpose was to be with us. To be God will us, camping out in the tabernacle of our hearts showing us where to go and how to live. We love you Lord and Believe in you. We believe you died for our sins and we accept the fullness of your presence here and now. Be exalted. In Jesus Holy Name, Amen.

The Return of the Martyr (Part 2)

What are the elemental requirements of Christianity? Do you have to believe in God? Believe in the trinity? Believe Jesus Christ died for our sins? Do you have to die?

Let me paint a picture here with some scripture. In John chapter 2 Christ enters into the temple near the time of Passover with his disciples. As He enters into the temple He notices that salesmen are selling sacrificial offerings in the temple, As the story goes He makes a whip out of cords and gets rid of the Salesmen. The Jews asked him by what authority he did these things and He responds by saying, “Destroy this temple and in three days I will raise it up.”

I believe that just as in John 3 Christ sees the situation as it truly is, not just what was said, but the intentions of the heart. He sees the motivation behind the question and responds to it. ( In John 3 Nichodmus speaks to Christ about Christ’s miracles and Christ responded with, You must be born again.) Christ was saying that I see your frustration with me, but I know that this is right so kill me and I will rise again. I am willing to die before you defile the temple of My Father.

Once again painting the picture, in Matt 16 Christ takes his disciples up to Caesarea Philippi and asks them ,”Who do people say that I am?” Peter gives the million dollar response, That He is the Christ the Son of the living God. And Christ in turn tells the disciples that upon this proclamation I will build my church and the gates of death and hades will not prevail against it. Basically Christ is giving them the keys to heaven as he says that whatever you agree on here on earth will be done because of the power I am giving to you. 

Then when Christ explains His upcoming death Peter rebukes Him. Christ immediately explains the necessity of following Him and carring a cross.

Can you see it? Christ is explaining the cost of the power of son-ship. It is in the self sacrifice. He explains the power then instructs that to be my disciple you must pick up your cross and follow me. There is no other way. These two elements are required to be together. There would not be salvation for us if Christ would of just taught great things and lived a famous life. We didn’t need a hero we needed a Messiah.

I think we have read these scriptures too many times and in a way neutered them of there potency. If the thought of carrying a cross has become nonchalant to you let me rephrase it. To be a Christian you must die. You must die to your desires, you must die to your sins, you must die so that the enemy has nothing to threaten you with. This is the liberation of the believer that led millions to actually, real life, bloody, slow deaths. Did you know that all of the 12 disciples (minus John because of prophecy) were murdered in brutal fashion. Did you know that every hour of the day Christians are being murdered for there faith. (Every Christian should own Jesus Freaks published by Bethany House and Foxes Book of Martyrs)

This may seem extreme and it should, it has to be a daily death to obtain the supernatural power of the Holy Spirit. 

2 Timothy 4:3 For a time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine, but according to their own desires, because they have itching ears, they will heap up for themselves teachers, and they will turn their ears away from the truth and be turned aside to fables. 

      

The Return of the Martyr

Amos 2:11 I also raised up prophets from among your children and Nazerites from among your youths…But you made the Narerites drink wine and commanded the prophets not to prophecy.

What is it about the human race that permeates peer pressure. Every action, every thought has every thing to do with influencing others. We say things that will make people perceive us in the way we want to be perceived. Most of our customs, traditions, language, wardrobes, and everything else, we acquire comes from the influence of others. They say that rock and roll was started by a man who sold his soul for it.

So what makes fitting in so attractive? Why do I get all anxious when I speak to large groups of people? Why do I buy clothing that others will complement me on? Why do I have a tendency to please others even when I know that what will help them will hurt them? Am I being lured into a trap to suffocate my perspective or am I tactfully changing those whom I live life with?

Tonight we went to see a movie about how a deadly desease killed off 90% of the entire world and left 5 percent infected with the disease. Most of the other 5 % that were not infected where devoured by the 5% that were infected. Only a small handful of people were left to defend themselves and try to cure the disease. The infected could not come out into the sunlight because of the disease. The few healthy people who survived had to move in the day very tactfully and soberly. In the place where the lead character lived he made every precaution to prevent any attack on his life. This movie was super suspenseful full of iery scenes that made you want to get up out of the theater and leave. As the lead character was going through the city in search of food his only companion his dog ran into an abandon dark building chasing the deer that they were trying to kill. The lead character went in to the building and found a colony of the infected people where they tried to kill him. He escaped and set up a trap from outside the building. He set the trap on a window seal at the edge of the light to catch one so that he could try to find a cure for the disease. He trapped the infected person and continued. Later on in the movie the lead character was riding though the abandoned city in the day and found a familar statue in a random spot, he approached it and was trapped by the same type device he had used earlier. But the trap that he use took the infected person out of the dark this trap was to keep him until the darkness came where he would become a meal for the deranged people.

Okay, okay, I know this is a very strange plot and movie I admit. But I can’t help but to reflect upon the Christian’s walk in the darkness. The life or death implications that can not be compromised at all cost. It is only when I stay fueled up by my physical discipline to the Father that I can stand tall in the midst of darkness and shine forth radiant light. It is only when I stay prayed up that I can boldly speak the truthful word that’s sets others free. It is only when I become who God has called me to be that the trap set by the enemy is ineffective.

When we drift away from the light and our disciplines falter, our minds become unaware of the validity of the Gospel. We become sidetracked… we become religious. And when we become religious the Gospel becomes a social scheme like that of the world where we are polarized into pleasing each other and fitting in. We begin to wear clothes that other will admire and saying things that makes others think highly of us. Before we know it we are walking around in the dark just like the world wrapped in a dark trap that we can’t get out of. This is where the called people of God must stand up for truth. We must see through the deception by the Lord’s light. We must take A stand and fulfill our Nazerite vow we must prophecy what the Lord has laid on our hearts, we must take a stand to save those who can’t understand that they are in the darkness.

We must take this life seriously and be willing to be killed like our Lord Jesus Christ. 

Heirs and Slaves

Recently I was reading in Galatians and this passage stood out…”…as long as heirs are underage they are no different from slaves although they own the whole estate.” The context of this scripture is about how Christ came to make us sons and daughters, we are not held in captivity to the law, but given total freedom by the grace that is embodied in Christ Jesus. But I have been thinking about this scripture is light of our culture and our religious tendencies, not that of the church in Galatia. The letter to the church in Galatia was dealing with a people who were coming out Judaism. We are dealing with a people who live a form of undisiplined,  skewed Christianity.

What stuck my heart is that the scripture mentions that because they are underage they are slaves instead of sons. I have come to be reminded of the half hearted examples of real Christianity that results in fruitless Christians. It seems that at the way we devote so little to our faith, that it is a wonder that a remnant still exists in the US. At best, we have a hand full of people who choose to participate in a mostly spiritless form of evangelism that makes me sick. At best, our love is conditional because of our lack of maturity. If the more fundamental actions of a beleiver are being missed how will we ever find enough responsibilty to correct and rebuke our brother and sisters.

 It’s time to either jump in or get out of the way. You can never be victorious if you never mature in Christ, You will always be a slave to the mundane spirits that dwell in this world. But God has died to create in us the spirit of son-ship. The spirit of faithfulness and honor. God told Abraham, “Walk before me faithfully and be blameless. Then I will make a covenant with you and you will greatly increase your numbers”(Gen. 17:1-2). We will never be fruitful evangelically until we submit to the Father and labor with Christ unto maturity for the sake of the Kingdom.

Folsom Prison Style Ministry

After watching Walk the Line I bought the live recording from Folsom Prison by Johnny Cash. Ever since I first listened to the album I have been mesmerised by it. It is one of those recordings that has it’s own area code. The more I have listened to the album in its entirety, the more I have been learning about ministry.

I don’t know a lot about Cash and his faith, but what happened that day in that prison was ministry. It was evangelism, it was compassion, it was Gospel, it was incarnation, it was the easy yoke, it was Jesus.

Christ came in the flesh, born in a stable to a Hebrew mother and father. He dwelt with the sick, the needy, the lame, the outcasts, and sinners. He was friendly towards them not pious, he healed them and dwelt with them. Christ changed people and loved them. I don’t believe for  minute that when he ate with tax collectors and sinners that the whole time he was sitting at the table he was plotting on how he was going to get them saved. I don’t think he was sitting there upset that they were cussing, or seperating himself because of there actions. I believe that Christ was enjoying Himself and enjoying the people he created. I believe he was telling stories about situations that the people he was around could relate to. He met them where they were and sought to help them.

The songs on this album are performed in that same spirit. Johnny comes out blazing a trail of tracks that are meant to uplift and relate to the audience. He does not sing songs that make people look up to him. He sings songs that minister….  What would our lives look like if as Paul said, “we become all things to all men that we might save some”.  

The ministry that happened that day didn’t divide, it united a group of men that had no reason to unite. That’s what Jesus does; He takes a group of people and presents grace and truth, nothing more nothing less.

The Christmas Story and Betting Your “Donkey”

Finally, Be strong in the Lord and in his mighty power. Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers and the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. Therefore…          Ephesians 6:10-

Well, if you have been visiting this site wondering how odd it may seem, so erratic, so serious, and or so weird. I have to admit I am a Prayer Pastor. I know that sounds weird because I didn’t know such a thing existed until I became one. So I say all that to preface what I am about to say. You may need to know that this is the lens that I see through.

Last night some of our prayer people were invited to a local church to intercede for an event that was being held for a large group of homeless people. A small group of church people served food and beverages to multiple different homeless people coming from many different shelters. Now that I think about it, it sounds a lot like the parable of the banquet (Luke 14:12-). These folks were fed good food and were given a dance performance by about 60 kids ranging for 4 years old to 17 years old.

Before it started I was given the opportunity to pray for the performers. Some words that I spoke seem to come right out of the air and are still resounding in my heart. “Father it is through a child that you saved the world may it be trough a child that you save these grown men”. And may I tell you in advance that this is what happened. After we prayed they went loudly scurrying off to take there places and begin the show. In that time we were drawn to pray for the event, for about 15 or 20 minutes the Lord place all kinds of things in our mouths to pray. Some were poignant some were broad. We prayed that bondage would be broken and the shackles of oppression would be torn down. We prayed that the spirit of God would be present.

After we prayed we went down to the show. The large group of people were sitting glued to the stage where well trained and over practiced children performed there parts. It was beautiful, almost too beautiful. Can you imagine anything more beautiful, children teaching the elders. The simple making fools of the wise. It was precious. I could feel the real presence of the Lord brooding in the room. It was evident because no one could keep themselves from being fully captivated by the show. I will admit in every way the show was amazing, but nothing makes an event alive like the life giver.

About three quarters through the wonder-full show the narrator wisely told the audience that the show was taking a turn towards Christ and the warfare that is always pulling at all of us. The words were sober and most appropriate to the situation. All who were there were not at all disturbed by these words but seems fully prepared for what was going to happen kind of like telling a child that “we are going to the toy section of the store but we are not going to buy anything”.

After a few songs and visual portrayals of spiritual light and dark, including of course emphasis on Christ’s supremacy, the narrator came back. She asked if anyone wanted to receive Christ and to receive prayer. Hands went up like there was a reverse gravity pulling them up. Let me just give you a foot note here these men and women are poor, poor in spirit, poor in possessions… poor. But they saw the treasure that is spoken of as being the pearl of great price. The one thing that really matters. The Gospel.

The hands went up and we went to each of them with hearts full of Christ. I bounced around praying for all kinds of needs. And as I was walking through a man had his head on the table and didn’t have his hand up. I got close to him and asked him if I could pray for him. He said “yes”, I asked him his name he said “Steven”, I asked him if there was anything specific that he wanted prayer for he shook his head to say no. All the while keeping his head down. I begin to pray as I could only imagine someone in his position could need prayer. I prayer about bitterness towards people in his past, I prayed about strength, I prayed everything that I knew how. But I kept hitting a wall, kind of like a spiritual coldness that  hindered my prayer. I kept hitting this coldness, then I told him that scripture tells us that if you confess with your mouth and believe in your heart that Jesus is Lord you will be saved. I asked him to say something to the Lord to invite him in. He didn’t say a word, his head was still down tears falling from his eyes straight to the ground as his head was still face the floor. I waited and watched all the while my hands were on his shoulders and my knees on the ground. I waited and watched then he began to tremble and I felt a bolt of the spirit begin to stream in like a river of life. It aloud me to pray again, not with a wall to hinder but with a rejoicing that led me to say phrase like “Jesus is real” and a “Thank you Lord”. After that moment I prayed random prayers of strength and encouragement and that was that.

After that things got real blurry for me. The joy of that experience is what still has me intoxicated. A few more acts followed and the group of men left as we all did. But what God did in that room will never be forgotten. God put a plan together so that he would be the main event. When people surrender to what God wants to do you can bet your “donkey” that things will never be the same.
