CornerstoneDad Podcast #15 – Reggie’s First Sermon: The Sin Line

If we were to take this photo again today, Reg would be one of the tallest in the shot instead of being "the little guy". Rob is with the Lord now, but I couldn't help but think of how proud he would be been of Reg as well.

As we wrap up our time here in our area, our days of going to the mission in our city are coming to an end. My boys have spent much time there and I’ve been asking my 16-year-old for about a year if he ever wanted to speak.

Praise God, this time, he said he was ready, and you can listen to the message HERE.

So many times we get more excited about our kid’s sports achievement, than we do about their spiritual lives. However, lets tell the truth, we get excited about how fast they run, hit, throw, swim, etc., because of the pride it brings us and the possibility of riches. We forget about

Matthew 6:21:For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also

and

Ecclesiastes 5:10: Whoever loves money never has enough;
    whoever loves wealth is never satisfied with their income.
    This too is meaningless.

Yes indeed, it is truly meaningless. It would be much more difficult for our children to follow Christ making $10M per year and fame than $35K per year teaching in a school.

But 1 Cor. 9:24-25 says:

Do you not know that in a race all the runners run, but only one receives the prize? So run that you may obtain it. Every athlete exercises self-control in all things. They do it to receive a perishable wreath, but we an imperishable.  

I’m so very proud of my son, and I thank God for his grace in allowing me to see him grow more as a brother in Christ, as he grows into the man that God wants him to be.

If we were to take the above photo again today, Reg would be one of the tallest in the shot instead of being “the little guy”. Rob is with the Lord now, but I couldn’t help but think of how proud he would be been of Reg as well.

CornerstoneDad on True Riches With The MissionMen: What Is Going On In the Church That You Are Considering?

 

So you think you may have found a church, or at least a church that may make your short list.

But what’s going on in there? What are they practicing?

Join me and Mission Man Ron, as we discuss some other things to look for in your church search.

Are they focusing on the physical more than the spiritual?

What are they seeking, fleecing your wallet or feeding the flock?

Does the pastor have a Cadillac?

Do they only take care of the “elite”?

Do church officials have so many titles in their name, that their own momma’s don’t know what to call them?

Would the church treat you better if you introduced yourself as, “Reverend”?

Does the church have a proper understanding of healing and prosperity?

That’s just a little of what we discussed in the fast-fifteen that we call, True Riches With The Mission Men!

CornerstoneDad on True Riches With The Mission Men – Is Your Church Too Feminized?

I don’t know about you, but my dad was much more like this guy…
…than this guy!

 

Father’s Day is around the corner and I want you to do old CSD a favor.

Is the message different that what you heard on Mother’s Day?

If your Mother’s Day message praised and exalted motherhood, do you expect the Father’s Day message to do the same?

Unfortunately, in many churches that I’ve belong to, the exact opposite happened. Father’s were lectured, told they needed to do more, and made-fun-of like and talked about like they are Homer Simpson more than Joseph, the earthly father of Jesus.

What is going on? Why don’t men go to church? Why are women having to drag men to church?

Check out this two part series on True Riches With The Mission Men and leave us your comments.

Are we way off? Right on the mark? Too sensitive? Is the problem worse than what we even discussed?
