Luke 9:23-25 – 23 Then he said to them all: “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross daily and follow me. 24 For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. 25 What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?
Galatians 2:20 – I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me. The life I now live in the body, I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me.

Brothers, I am so humbled to serve with you for the upcoming Tres Dias Weekend. Since being asked to be the Rector for Weekend #46, I have been in deep thought and prayer to see what God’s vision and theme would be. He revealed to me the scripture of Luke 9:23-25 and that I needed to ‘Deny’ myself, “take up my cross” and “follow” Him! I came to realize that I, like many of us, may have areas in our lives that we are holding onto instead of dying to.
MEN, Jesus was serious. To follow Him, we would have to be ALL IN! There is no half-way – we need to forsake ALL!
“The true Gospel is a call to self-denial it is not a call to self-fulfillment.” said John Macarthur
MEN, Your “cross” is God’s will for you, regardless of the cost! We are to follow His steps and die to our will; to die to our self
Either Jesus is leading, or we are.
Either we choose Jesus, or we choose self.
Are you willing to deny yourself, take up your cross and follow Him?
As a step to “Taking up Yor Cross” and “Following Him”, I am asking you to consider serving and sponsoring for Men’s TBTD#46. It will be an awesome weekend of connecting with Christ and your brothers, prayer, worship and battling the enemy so we can leave and bring honor to Christ in our lives like never before.
Signing up is easy! Log on to the portal which is found at the top of this page and click on ‘Servers”.
I am looking forward to serving with you as we serve the candidates and out Awesome God!
Isaiah 43:19(NIV) – “See, I am doing a new thing! Do you not perceive it? I am making away thru the wilderness and streams in the wasteland.”
“Who You Are To Me” by Chris Tomlin
Sisters in Christ,
The most joyful times in my life have been when I was walking close to the Lord and letting him lead.
This verse means so much to me as when I have been a Christian wandering in my faith it gives me comfort know the Lord is making a way for me to come back!
The scripture also gives me peace of mind knowing that God has made a way for me thru some of the worst moments in life.
God’s perspective is the one that matters. Please join me in this journey as we see how our Abba Father can “Change Your Perspective”.
