How Do I Know If I Have The Mind Of Christ?

The Mind Of Christ

On the eve of a new year, and countless new opportunities to serve our Lord, a few minutes ago, I received an email that had quite an impact on my family and me.

I have taken the liberty of slightly modifying the letter below to protect my client’s privacy.

Daniel,
I am so grateful for your service. We are finding what an arduous and determined task it is to uncover and discover those who have a heart for the lost souls in prisons.

Jesus understood it perfectly, but no many others do.

Statistics show that only five percent of the body of the church (including evangelicals) are all that have interest in evangelism other than casual. When you add in the prisoner factor that number goes quickly to about one percent. But that is why God chose those of us who will stay the course and are called to save lost souls and pass the message to the least and lost.

The two best emails you have constructed consisted of one called $155 back in September where I got six new church contributors. The other is the one just done for the free book. I got about 23 responses and requests from the newer and skinnier list of 11,000.

I will work on developing these as well as others as I build a database of all who have bought a book, expressed interest or otherwise contributed, etc. I am attaching a letter of response I send for your consideration so you know what I am doing and what I want to do.

I really appreciate your service very much.

This is a long term proposition, it seems, but nevertheless progress is being made. Sometime in the next sixty days, I will send out 250,000 books to all prisons in order to make sure all get something.

As it turns out, about one third will be with money I make from my secular business consultation deals.

It looks like that will continue for a while until the donor base of this endeavor is up to par.

That said, I need a little help on my business website.

1.) I need to send some updates on law firms and other new references to add to the references section

2.) Could we make the articles section separate from the knowledge base to make it easier to access

3.) I am about to publish some new articles in coming months in trade journals, but I may want to blog about these and others that I have some ideas about. So, I would like to have a nice accessible and attractive blog site or maybe it could be called current events or some other name that is about the different things my business is doing in environmental consulting, expert witness litigation, and unconventional appraisal work.

I had hoped to transition to full time ministry, but God wants me working and it appears he will fund the ministry through my secular business.

Please let me know the charges for the website work.

It is a great pleasure working with you Daniel and to know that you have the mind of Christ and he is guiding your thoughts and ideas.

What a pleasure to work with a man of God who put God and family ahead of all. Praise God!

TGIM – Free Backlinking with RSS MP3 Audio PLR

TGIM

With the holiday season in full swing, I find myself in awe with God’s perfect plan for our ministry, our homestead, my family, my businesses and our thriving entourage.

First, our online ministry continues to grow in tune with the Lord’s will, through live prayer & counseling, an interactive service we’ve offered on the Thrive Through Christ website for well over 15 years, leading the way for other Christian ministries to get on board with this glorious, purpose driven endeavor.

As for our homestead, we just celebrated the first year anniversary of our #FoodIsFree cart, we also continue to expand our gardens, recently built an aviary so we can contain our flock of chickens, ducks and turkeys which have become quite the nuisance on our property as the birds compete with the goats, geese, cows and our horse for food…

Then, my businesses. What else can I say but thank you Jesus!!! This has been a fantastic year, and I am eager to wrap up the half dozen projects we’re working on, so I can call this year the best one since the 1990’s.

Finally, my friends and entourage continue to show signs of God’s wonder, as children are born healthy, illnesses are handled with grace, our closest friends purchased their dream property and are in the building process, and most importantly, challenges are overcome with joy.

Now back to TGIM’s focus: Internet Marketing!

As I mentioned a couple of weeks ago, to maximize your revenue from the Internet you must focus on basic elements of web marketing:

1. Exposure

2. Conversion

3. Relationships

It’s really that simple! First, make certain your prospects and audience can find you. Next, you need to ensure you convert qualified leads into revenue. Lastly, you must build a solid relationship with your constituents, making certain to be as transparent as possible.

In this week’s TGIM, we’ll address another important aspect of “Exposure” by concentrating on backlinks, more specifically, RSS driven linking which are used to help you maximize search engine rankings.

Next week, we’ll look into the relationship aspect of your online success.

This week’s PLR gem is titled “Backlinking with RSS.”

Free Small Group Bible Study Material – Luke 16:1-13 The Parable of the Dishonest Manager

Free Bible Study Small Group Material

Why aren’t more bible study tools available online for small groups?

With small groups or life groups on the rise across the world, you would think more tools and material would be available to believers who are looking to extend their knowledge of God’s word as each one seeks to strengthen their relationship with other disciples of Jesus.

Sadly, while such resources ARE on the rise they are not free…

Because of this, and since my wife Elizabeth and I are both ministry leaders and teachers of God’s word on some level, I went ahead and produced a free bible study which we used in our most recent small group this past Wednesday evening.

I invite you to Click HERE to access the free bible study resource which you can download, print or share free of charge.

The bible study features commentary from yours truly, as well as other insight from various disciples of the risen Savior.

It is my hope God will manifest His presence during your study of His word, and that you will be abundantly blessed as a result of your endeavor to serve our Lord.

Mid-Life Crisis? LOL Yeah Buddy!

So here I am a month or so passed hurricane season, the loss of two of our most beloved newly born farm animals, several power, internet, air conditioning and even water/well issues. I am well, alive and, very unfortunately, overwhelmed with guilt.

When so many lost so much, and suffered through devastation I can’t even begin to imagine, my family, neighbors and I were faced with a limited spectrum of challenges, but by God’s will, electricity was in abundance on Glorious Acres with a gas generator powering our home as well as our neighbor’s refrigerator/freezer. I also had a solar generator power my office when needed.

Since then, I hit rock bottom. I realized I’m having a mid-life crisis.

I didn’t buy a sports car. I drive too fast and have no desire to break the law.

I didn’t buy a boat to go fishing and snorkeling. Instead, I built cane poles with my wife and daughters for free.

I didn’t go on a trip to Miami Homestead with my best friend to watch the Nascar Championship race this year. I stayed home, connected our livingroom TV to a 35 year old antenna using 100ft of co-ax wire I got for $6, then watched the race at home with my girls.

So what did I do for my so called “mid-life crisis?”

Our-Honda-Powered-Go-Kart

When I was 4 years old or so, my dad got my a go kart for my birthday. It was red. It had no motor. My father was such a loser dad, he never put an engine on the kart. So I never got to drive it, just stare at it every single day of my life.

Yesterday, I bought a go kart from a liar, an imbecile who spent close to 2 hours trying to install a throttle cable on a Honda engine that clearly was not going to fit. A half dozen tie wraps, a metal screw, a hose clamp of sorts that was too big for the job, hence the need for a screw to be jammed inside the oversized clamp… Without a doubt, the worst hack job I ever seen, and worse, it didn’t even work!!!

So today, on my daughter Trinity’s 10th birthday, I wrenched on the go kart, custom built a governor tensioner plate using steel plating, my grinder and a power drill, took out the motor and re-drilled all 4 engine mount holes in the frame, replaced the engine, replaced both front wheels, adjusted the throttle cable and added 2 springs to the governor to prevent the kart from taking off on its own.

The result?

A $200 mid-life crisis that is eating up our homestead grass one driver at a time! From yours truly to my lovely wife, screaming all the way, Trinity driving with a pudding smile, Grace breaking “posted” speed limits, again, and last but not least, Faith, fearless, genuinely awesome.

I am truly #blessed…
