My walk “with” Jesus has, like so many others have experienced, has been a mixture of joy and sadness, straight paths and detours, ups and downs. I have learned that inevitably the detours, pitfalls, and pain are coupled with my decisions to walk the path alone, not that I didn’t want the Lord with me, but that I figured I knew best. After a few years of almost continuous struggles and pitfalls I accepted the invitation of the Lord to have Him walk with me – and oh the path has improved dramatically. I was “saved” at conception, “born again” at age 18, and “walking closer with the Lord at age 25, and “dedicated to the ministry of preaching and teaching” at age 40. I am saved by the grace of God, sanctified by the blood of Christ, and commissioned to serve by power of the Holy Spirit – – now I just need to do my part.
I have more degrees than a thermometer and am educated far beyond my intelligence. I obtained a Bachelor’s of Science degree from the University of Missouri-Columbia (Go Mizzou – -SEC…) in 1980, a Masters of Business Administration with an emphasis in Computer Resource Management from Webster University in 1990, a Masters of Divinity (1987), and a Doctorate of Divinity (2000) from Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary. These degrees, coupled with the Masters Degree from the School of Hard Knocks clearly prepare me to fix computers and preach the gospel…
Many folks ask me what I like to do in my spare time, and I really don’t know. I am a “Type-A” person and almost always doing “something”. I’m not one to sit down and read a book or watch a movie without also working on something on the computer. I like to work in the yard and around the house building things, even though I don’t always finish the tasks. I guess as long as I don’t finish, I always have something to work on.
Galatians 2:20 I am crucified with Christ: nevertheless I live; yet not I, but Christ liveth in me: and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by the faith of the Son of God, who loved me, and gave himself for me.
