photo-145.jpgI am speaking at a few YWAM locations this summer on Micah 6:8 “He has shown you, Oh man, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly, love mercy and walk humbly with your God.” I love this verse, it is so beautiful and so clear on what God asks of us, but I find myself rarely living it out. I don’t want to be someone who likes the idea of doing justice, loving mercy and walking humbly but is full of selfishness, spite and pride.

I read the other day where Jesus brother James said, “those who teach will be judged more strictly.” This scared me to be honest. I see how sinful I am in light of what I am teaching others. I not only see my sin as disobedience, but also hypocrisy. I take this seriously, it doesn’t mean I live it out 100%, but I want to and I do take it seriously.

I remember a few summers ago, like 9 summers ago, my friend Dave suggested that we not clean up our acts because it is summer and we are teaching and discipling kids, but that we clean up our acts because we love Jesus. That way, no matter what we are doing our lives are focussed and set on Him. I pray for me, and ask that you pray for me that I would be a man of integrity this summer, and in life on a regular basis. “Keep me Lord from willful sins, may they not rule over me.”

    Hey man you will always be a part of my prayers, that is of course your and your family. I am sad by the fact that I did not get to see you before you left, but i am stoked to read what God is doing with you and your life there in Canada.
