    Praise the Lord! this is very encouraging not only at church level even at our daily living. Most people tend to give up on their children, marriage, career, life, family, relationship,jobs etc, just because they luck persistence. I love this pastor Rick!

    This is quite encouraging Pastor Rick. You’re a leader with great experience and your examples are worthy of emulation.
    Thank you for sharing this article.
    God bless you always.

    • Thankyou Pastor for your valuable teachings and messages, we(me and many more Pastors are so much blessed trough you teachings and messages.. Rev. SHAIK, Fire AG Church, Dharmavaram Town, Anamthapuram district, Andhrapradesh, India.

  13. I struggle with whether faith is a choice as you mention in Matt 9:29 or a giftof God as stated in Romans12:3: ..”but rather think of yourself with sober judgement in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you.”, and of course the popular verse: “For it is by grace, through faith you have been saved, and this not of yourself, but the gift of God, so no one may boast”. I would be very grateful if you would please help me with this confusion

      Jim it’s both, it’s like most things in life, naturally and spiritually, you receive it because it’s given to you, then you steward it (your choice your responsibility)

  14. Thanks so much Pastor Rick for this article and the purpose-driven life. They are very helpful. God bless you

    Thank you for the Encouragement and Scripture that gives us Positive and Spiritual Vision to Go Foward every day we May Struggle … God is Good !!!

  16. Our church has gone through some difficult times. The last four have seen a remarkable change. I believe it’s because our pastor has the philosophy you discussed in the above article. He never gave up & showed the faith needed. Thank you.
