DISCOVERING YOUR PURPOSE

October 4th, 2018|Categories: Cultivate My Purpose|Tags: , , , |

You were created on purpose with purpose. The bible undeniably teaches us that "...we are His [God's] workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them" (Ephesians 2:10). In short, you are the solution to a problem and becoming that solution is your purpose! The challenge [...]

A GRACE MANIFESTO – Why Are We So Afraid of Grace?

January 20th, 2020|Categories: Cultivate My Leadership, Cultivate My Ministry, Cultivate My Purpose, Cultivate My Relationships|Tags: , , , , , |

Grace & Holiness Grace in many Christian circles has become mysteriously controversial. For those brought up in any sort of holiness tradition (like I was), you’re probably even more susceptible to the systemic suspicion that’s aroused if the word grace is used more than two or three times in a single paragraph. Doing so [...]

TAKE MORE RISKS

December 16th, 2019|Categories: Cultivate My Leadership, Cultivate My Purpose|Tags: , |

I recently had the chance to spend a little time with modern-day giant in the faith, Pastor Tommy Barnett. Considering Pastor Barnett’s rich legacy and the fact he’s 80 years young, I knew his wisdom vault was huge, and I didn’t want to miss an opportunity to drink from a well this deep. So I [...]

You can't lead without a vision. Whether you're casting a new vision or just polishing up your old one, there is generally an emotional process that people go through before they completely understand and embrace the vision that God's palced in your heart for the church or orginization.

I've got an axe to grind. It drives me absolutely crazy when I hear people bad mouth their spouse. I just don't understand it. Whether it's done in private or in public; using your words to tear down the person your married to isn't just dishonoring, the Bible teaches us that it's actually pretty dangerous. [...]

What’s the first question most people ask when they’re introduced to someone? “What do you do for a living?” In other words, let me size you up based on the perceived importance of your job. The Identity Roller Coaster There’s a very real (and dangerous) temptation to attach your identity to your activity . . [...]

Fear has a way of making average look attractive . . . but you weren’t created to be average. For every step you take towards your purpose, fear will be right there trying to push you backwards. It’ll tempt you to settle for something less than you were created for, which is why you’ve got [...]

HOW TO IDENTIFY A COUNTERFEIT PURPOSE

September 26th, 2019|Categories: Cultivate My Leadership, Cultivate My Purpose|Tags: |

Failure isn’t something to fear in the pursuit of your purpose. In fact, I’ve learned far more from my failures than my successes. Much more dangerous than failure is becoming successful at the wrong thing . . . spending your life unfulfilled, not making a real impact, when you could be walking in the significance [...]

Pain blurs vision. Whether it’s your vision for life, marriage, family, or the pursuit of your purpose - no matter which part of your heart the pain is touching, stormy seasons have a way of causing us to view life through the lens of “this is never gonna get better” and “nothing’s ever going to [...]
