A Deeper Relationship
by Cameron Stevens on September 21st, 2020
To be a Christian. To be "like" Christ. A disciple. A follower of Jesus. What does this all mean? It was a long time ago, in a career far, far away that the Lord spoke very clear to me. I was at an administrator's conference when He spoke the following phrase to me: "exist to serve". In searching scripture, God directed me to 1 John 2:6 which states, "The one who says he abides in Him ought himself to walk in the same manner as He walked." Little did I know how important this would become to my personal faith in Jesus today.
Before you take your mark

Ever watch the Olympics? I do, and my favorite athletes to watch are the sprinters in the track & field events. The power they exhibit coming off the blocks, the flawless running form, and the speed is awesome to watch! As I'm sure you have noticed, they are dressed very differently in how they come on to the track, versus what they wear when they run...How can we move forward down the track (in ministry) while carrying all the extra weight of sin?
The Light Inside
by Cameron Stevens on September 7th, 2020
Everyone has sung the old children’s song 'This Little Light of Mine' in church before. It’s a cute rendition to explain that we are to let our light shine for Jesus. As St. Francis of Assisi is credited with saying, “Preach the gospel to all the world, and if necessary, use words.” It’s a great challenge for us all to live our faith and present the actions and love of Jesus to the world around us. However, what we’re talking about here is not so much the light that you let shine, but the light that is within you.

Two things I've always tried to hold on to in my relationship with Jesus are these terms: Consistency and Constancy. First, let me say that I am in no way claiming to be an expert on this issue. I only speak to this because of my consistent and constant failure as a Christian. The reason these two words are near and dear to me is because I classify them as "road signs" as opposed to definitions of character. Let me explain what I mean.
In My Time Of Need
by Cameron Stevens on August 24th, 2020
In the book of Psalms, David passionately declares that “God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.” (Psalm 46:1). I can honestly say that there have not been too many times in my life where I felt as if I was in distress, unsure of where my life was headed. This verse and so many others provided me the comfort needed when a part of this world seemed to crash down around me.
