Our world is in need of a Saviour
We are all aware of the struggles taking place in Iraq and how they impacting our world. Everyday we wake up to new stories and issues in this fight for freedom across the seas. Our world is in need of a Saviour. A few days ago Nolan Corbitt from my church left to fulfill his duty in Iraq. I am sure that many of you have family and friends that are also serving our great country somewhere around the world. We need to uphold all of our brothers and sisters with daily prayer. Pray not only for their safety but pray also for the wives and children that are at home. Put yourself in their place. How would you want someone to pray for you and your family. We are the body of Christ, so let's do our best to take care of our brothers and sisters during this tumultous time in their lives.

No Limits Spanish Conference
This weekend has been a tremendous time of revival in Phoenix, Arizona. I had the honor of preaching the Spanish 'No Limits" Conference on Friday evening. Friday night pastor Jerry Marin preached an incredible message "Marked for God". We tag-teamed for Jesus. I even preached a little in spanish....it was a blast. Saturday morning Elder Ron Garrett preached a soul-stirring message about prayer. Saturday evening Bishop Curtis Young and Rev Jerry Marin will be preaching. While I was here, I had the privilege of fellow-shipping pastors from the Rock Association Ministry. Bro Vasquez, Bro Javier as well as Sacramento's own Pastor Herrera. It was a joy to see what God is doing in the "Valley of the Sun". I believe next year is going to be even bigger. To God be the Glory!

I woke this morning and read that one candidate for office stated that scriptural account of creation is unable to stand up to scientific inquiry. I had not even had my coffee yet, so it didn't set real well with me. How have we become so arrogant? We profess ourselves to be wise but we reveal how foolish we really are. I couldn't help but wonder this morning what God would say in his interview of such "gobblety-gook". Somehow I want him to say something like, "Such hubris doesn't measure up to Godly inquiry". If I was God I probably would say "Get a life" or something real juvenile that would reveal my inadequacy for the "Ruler of the Cosmos" position. But after coffee & prayer & study of the word, I think I heard him whisper something about "love" and "whosoever will". Isn't it amazing that God just keeps on loving and reaching in spite of our resistance, ignorance and arrogant self-promotion. Throughout our lives this week we will encounter co-workers, fellow-students, friends and family who may espouse similar beliefs of such statements that filled the web this morning. Often I want to lash out at such nonsense, but today in study and contemplation I felt a desire to "love" and reach with "compassion" to those that do not understand what the Spirit of God has revealed to me as a believer. I do not have to defend the Bible. I am supposed to "live" out the scripture.

From The Grand to the Grind
Well, my traveling days are over for a while. No Limits, Israel, France, Canada, Branson...all these foreign countries have me worn out. It is good to be home. Back to normal life. Well, as normal as my life ever is. We sometimes say "Back to the grind" with a negative bent, but I am not feeling any negativity right now. It is good to be back doing the daily work that makes the kingdom of God expand. The conferences, the crusades, the world-changing events only exist because of "daily faithfulness". I believe that the hope of the world is the "local church". The daily stuff is not near as fun as all of the high profile things that we want to be a part of. Peter was in one of those "cool" mountain-top events and wanted to stay and build 3 temples to dwell in, but Jesus said "No....lets head back down to where real life is...." This is where real ministry takes place, in the everyday existence of faithful obedience.
If you are frustrated because nothing glorious or invigorating is happening to you, just keep being faithful and the "grand things" have a way of showing up.
