Christ and His glory is my sole purpose for living. My soul feels a joy like no other when I realize He has given me the free gift of eternal life. I desire less of me and more of Him everyday. In Him, I am strong. Without Him, I am weak. He gives me the strength, joy, encouragement and purpose to press on toward this vision. My confidence in Christ is unwavering and firm. I am inspiring others toward Christ with my sincere love, patience, encouragement and devotion to Him in all that I do, with all that I am. I extend the same grace that he give me to everyone around me. I am quick to forgive as He has forgiven me. My faith and trust lies in Christ alone so help me God if I should do otherwise. God alone is my judge as He is the judge of everyone else in this world. He has granted me my wife and life partner to cherish and serve. He has granted me children to raise and nurture, love, lead and, eventually, give away. I alone am responsible for leading our family to Christ. I must die daily to myself, so that Christ can be made great and for the benefit of my family. In whatever I pursue, may it be of no worth to me as great as Christ. My life will be about a pursuit of Christ over money, fame and power. In all of my pursuits, the greatest goal will be for Christ to be glorified, magnified and freely enjoyed.
