"Teachers only have ultimately one tool: their entire life lived up to the moment of teaching. If I am not living in the shadow of the gospel and excited about the gospel, then students won’t be either. Teaching is loving the subject you are teaching in the presence of students you also love. They have not met for some reason, so you are introducing them."

A Defining Moment

"I remember the first time I was asked to lead a ministry in a formal way. I went to a coffee shop to pray and think about what the Lord had in store for me. I knew this moment and decision was a defining one in my life. My mind turned toward the calling of Moses reading the words from Exodus 4:10-12.

‘Oh, my Lord, I am not eloquent, either in the past or since you have spoken to your servant…’ Then the Lord said to him, ‘Who has made man’s mouth?...Is it not I, the Lord. Now therefore go, and I will be your mouth and teach you what you shall speak.’

In that moment, I felt that God was speaking to me. He was telling me he was God (I am who I am) and he would be beside me every step of the way. "
