  • God With Us

    via TJC

    All this took place to fulfill what the Lord had said through the prophet: “The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and they will him Immanuel” (which means “God with us”). Matthew 1:22-23[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    The last few Christmases have been rather non-traditional for me. Yet through it all, God has never left me. Instead, He and He alone has carried me through some very unexpected and challenging times and has given me unexpected joy in the midst of my struggles. 

    In 2018, my family woke up Christmas morning at St. Jude’s in the ICU. My daughter was 2 years old at the time. She had spent the last 48-72 hours on a ventilator following a 6-hour brain surgery. Four weeks earlier, my wife and I were expecting our second child, we thought our 2-year-old daughter was as healthy as could be, and we were planning our normal Christmas routine. Over the next four weeks, we had a miscarriage, we found out our daughter had a terminal brainstem tumor, and we woke up in the ICU on Christmas with her. This is not the Christmas we had planned just four weeks prior. But that day, I received the greatest gift I could ever imagine. The doctors deemed that my daughter was strong enough for us to hold that morning. And so Christmas morning, my daughter was able to get out of bed for the first time in 3 days, and I got to hold her in my arms. And a few days later, the doctors aligned their prognosis with God’s and told me that my daughter’s diagnosis was not terminal. 

    In 2019, I had pneumonia and was bedridden for all of our Christmas festivities. I was unable to enjoy most of our traditions. Again, my plans did not go the way I wanted. However, God showed me how blessed I truly was. I was able to wake up in my own home and not the ICU. My daughter got to run around and enjoy time with both sets of grandparents and all of her cousins. Even though I was sick, I could see how far God carried my family.

    This year, once again, Christmas is not what I imagined. Again, most of my plans did not come into fruition. Like most of you, I am unable to gather with family due to the pandemic. On top of that, my uncle, my dad’s older brother died this week from COVID-19. I do not know what unexpected perspective God is going to give me from this situation, but I do know He is with me. 

    Daily Battle Order: 

    Today, we celebrate Christmas. The day God sent His Son to walk among us, to show us what love is and to give us the greatest gifts, his example and our salvation. That way, all of us may be restored into a relationship with Him and can have eternal life. God is always with us and because Jesus took on human form and all of our sins, Jesus understands our hardships and struggles. As a result, we worship a God who is both always with us and can always identify with our situations, both good and bad.

  • Our Place in Jesus’ Story

    via TJC


    “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only Son, that whoever believes in him should not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but in order that the world might be saved through him. Whoever believes in him is not condemned, but whoever does not believe is condemned already, because he has not believed in the name of the only Son of God. And this is the judgment: the light has come into the world, and people loved the darkness rather than the light because their works were evil. For everyone who does wicked things hates the light and does not come to the light, lest his works should be exposed. But whoever does what is true comes to the light, so that it may be clearly seen that his works have been carried out in God.” - John 3:16-21[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    Yesterday we discussed Jesus as our rescuer. Today we are going to focus on us, those who need rescuing. Christmas is the time that we celebrate light coming into the world, but light is only meaningful in comparison to darkness. Jesus is that light, and we are that darkness. The apostle John had amazing clarity on this point. The verse above starts as the most familiar and memorized verse for Christians, but what follows is a humbling description of us and where we fit into this picture of darkness and light. We love the darkness because our works are evil, the scripture says, which is echoed by the psalms and the apostle Paul who teach: “None is righteous, no, not one; no one understands; no one seeks for God. All have turned aside; together they have become worthless; no one does good, not even one.” (Romans 3:9-12) This is the hopeless darkness of our lives without Christ, but that darkness need not be our destiny!

    Christ’s birth, the light coming into the world, is a sign of hope for a world in desperate need of a savior. I can picture intimately a time in my life that was as dark as the landscape without Christ. I did not believe I needed saving, and was blind to the truth that my life was falling apart. I had no career direction. I was angry and destructive in relationships. I was consumed with pornography as a replacement for intimacy. Worst of all, I was cynical about everything. I saw all the worst things in people, and assumed all the worst intentions. As cynical as I was though, I never turned that cynicism on myself. I never questioned my own goodness or my own intentions. Spiritually, I was dead. But then, light came into my world.

    In a moment of desperation I cried out to God, and Christ’s light shone in my darkness. I realized that I was the problem. I realized that I had wicked desires that lived in my heart. And I also realized that despite my wickedness and darkness, God loved me. He loved me enough to send His son to light up my darkness. He loved me enough that when I was least deserving of a savior, Christ died in my place. And though I still have wickedness in my heart, He loves me enough to be a lamp to my feet and to light my path.

    Daily Battle Order: 

    Men, I encourage you now in this season of light to reflect on the darkness that you came from. My story is not unique. We were all dead in sin before we were made alive in Christ. Seeing the whole landscape prepares us for battle, and it is a constant fight to stay focused on that light. But as God’s word tells us: The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it. Walk in the light!

  • Jesus is our Rescuer

    via TJC 

    “Now the tax collectors and sinners were all gathering around to hear Jesus. But the Pharisees and the teachers of the law muttered, “This man welcomes sinners and eats with them.” Then Jesus told them this parable: “Suppose one of you has a hundred sheep and loses one of them. Doesn’t he leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go after the lost sheep until he finds it? And when he finds it, he joyfully puts it on his shoulders and goes home. Then he calls his friends and neighbors together and says, ‘Rejoice with me; I have found my lost sheep.’ I tell you that in the same way there will be more rejoicing in heaven over one sinner who repents than over ninety-nine righteous persons who do not need to repent.”[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    Luke 15: 1 - 7 

    The greatest story ever told. Jesus is our Hope. He is our Rescuer. Christmas is the Season when we celebrate the birth of Jesus. God’s gift to us. So why then is Christmas sometimes overwhelming and depressing to a lot of people? Maybe we are short on money, maybe it is the stress of uncontrolled situations in our lives. Or is it that we are lacking something in our hearts? 

    At the age of 36, with a wife and 3 young children and a mortgage, my life was turned upside down when I was in a serious coal mining accident that changed my life in a split second. Myself and some other injured miners were left to fend for ourselves when the coal mining company stopped paying their bills and filed bankruptcy. Needless to say, I was left with major injuries and financial problems, and this experience in my life took the wind out of my sails. I became labeled as “Totally Disabled” and I lost my self worth as a man. 

    You see, I grew up in a Christian home and I knew about God and I had head knowledge of who Jesus was, but I really didn’t have them truly in my heart. In other words, God was on the back burner of my life, and I only went to Him or prayed to Him when I really needed something. Had I carried on this way, I would have missed heaven by 18 inches, the distance from head to my heart. But throughout these past 26 years, though the road had been very rocky and at times things looked very bleak for my family and me, Jesus was always with me. I found that these challenging times were designed to lead me to Him. It got me into His Word, it led me to men’s ministry, it led me to Him. Without these challenges, I would have never converted my knowledge into love.

    In Luke we learn - when the enemy throws everything it has at us, and it will, regardless of how many times, or how long we succumb to the pressures, Jesus comes after us again, and again, and again. No matter how many times you think is the limit of chances for someone, Christ sees you as his one lost sheep. When we find ourselves on the “Frontline” of Life, know Jesus is always right there with us, faithfully.  When you find yourself in doubt, facing fear of the unknown, remember Jesus is your Rescuer, looking to find you, pick you up, and place you on his shoulders. 

    Daily Battle Order: 

    How would you define your acceptance of the gift of Jesus as your rescuer? Examine any false messages that have been placed on you or issues you have faced from the world, and refocus on your value promised and paid for in Jesus Christ.

  • Reason for this Season


    via TJC


    “For a Child will be born to us, a Son will be given to us…”  “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only Son, so that everyone who believes in Him will not perish, but have eternal life.”  “Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow.” (Isaiah 9:6a; John 3:16; James 1:17 NASB)[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    In a normal year, thoughts of Christmas time often lead to thinking about gifts; both giving and receiving. Of course, the greatest gift of all is Jesus, born as the innocent babe in the manger, the ultimate gift and realization of God’s promise across the ages. However, 2020 has Not been a normal year. Even so, Jesus is still the reason for this season. 

    The Old Testament provides a foreshadowing from which devoted followers of God for many generations looked forward to their coming messiah. Soon after Jesus’ birth, distinguished foreigners visited, opening their treasures to present gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 

    A gift is something given freely from one party to another; if the recipient is required to pay, then it is no longer a gift. “For by grace you have been saved through faith; and this is not of yourselves, it is the gift of God; not a result of works, so that no one may boast. For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” Eph 2:8-10. This incredible gift, though free to us, was paid for by Christ Jesus.

    A gift given must be received to fulfill its purpose. Though given, for God’s gift to be meaningful for us, we must receive (or “unwrap”) it.

    Daily Battle Order: Take this time to think, “what is Christmas really about?” … Did you earn this gift (if so, then it is a wage and not a true gift)? Have you received this gift? As you unwrap God’s incredible gift, what does this gift mean to you and your family, especially in this unusual year? Wise men traveled from far and went through great efforts, to open their treasures and worship.

  • Immanuel

    via TJC


    “Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign: The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son, and will call him Immanuel.” Isaiah‬ ‭7:14‬ [expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    This week we are celebrating Christ mainly because it is the week which we celebrate His birth! To set the tone for the week, I want to focus on a few things from this scripture from Isaiah. I chose this verse specifically, because of one main reason, timing. 

    This is the first time we are presented with this word and the meaning behind it in the Bible. We are told God will send His son, calling Him Immanuel, meaning God with us. Most scholars believe that Isaiah was written around 740 BC. 740 BC! Over 700 years before Christ is actually born, we receive the prophecy that is to be fulfilled in Christ. Looking back to Genesis, God gives us foreshadowing that the seed of woman would be the victor over satan and sin. From the prophecy, the deliverance, and His miraculous existence on earth, the timing and alignment is almost impossible; you might even call it God-like. The entire system is a masterfully crafted gift. (More on that later this week)

    Christ has always been, He is, and always will be. The evidence and delivered promise is everywhere. This week, TJC really wants everyone to focus completely on Christ. Today we covered His roots and structure as Immanuel. The rest of this week, look forward to digging further into the fulfilled promise in Christ, how He lived, how we fit into that model, believers and non-believers alike, and ultimately the outlook of reigning with Him in His kingdom forever. 

    Daily Battle Order: 

    With everything negative going on in our worldly lives, TJC wants to bring you to rejoice and worship in the greater Kingdom that cannot be defeated. I challenge you this week to use each day, as we remind you of the intricacy of how He is interwoven into the very fabric of our existence, to worship Him for what He has done, what He is doing, and what He will do.

  • Consequences of Discipline

    via TJC

    “Discipline does not seem enjoyable at the time, but painful. Later on, however, it yields the fruit of peace and righteousness to those who have been trained by it.”  Hebrews 12:11[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    “My son, do not reject the discipline of the LORD Or loathe His reproof, For whom the LORD loves He reproves, Even as a “coach/father” corrects the son in whom he delights.”  Proverbs 3:11-12

    “Think about it: Just as a parent disciplines a child, the LORD your God disciplines you for your own good. ‘So obey the commands of the LORD your God by walking in his ways and fearing him.’”  Deuteronomy 8:5-6

    Years ago when I was working at the University of Alabama, I had the opportunity to have coffee with Coach Nick Saban. We were comparing football training and the military, and he shared a core philosophy that he shares with new recruits and permeates throughout his football team. He teaches young men that “you are going to have to make a decision in life. You have to choose the pain of discipline or the pain of disappointment”. 

    When you teach a young child to brush his teeth, it’s a discipline. Why? Because that discipline is far better than the disappointment of having cavities and dental issues for life.  We teach a young driver the discipline of walking around her car to make sure it’s ready, and putting on a belt. Why?  That discipline is better than the disappointment of being late as you ran over something hidden behind the car.  These kinds of decisions permeate our lives; investing versus overcharging credit cards, working out versus growing soft and weak impacting quality of life as you age. Time at work balanced with time with family. 

    There are consequences to all our decisions. Choosing discipline limits the many disappointments we might have to live with, for many years.  TJC  spent the last couple weeks diving into discipline, why? Because many of us have known disappointments that were the result of poor decisions and lack of discipline. 

    My list of personal disappointments is far too long, the worst is the disappointments I caused others due to my lack of discipline that led to divorce and hurting my family. 

    More important is that we focus on the future. We have an incredibly difficult mission ahead of us in 2021.  This past year was a period of realization; no one anticipated what 2020 would reveal about all of us. It has prepared us for greater assignments in the kingdom as we choose to focus on discipline. 

    TJC is now moving into a celebration of Christmas and recapping the lessons and adventure of 2020.

    Daily Battle Order:

    You know where you chose an easy route instead of the “ancient path” of discipline. Write down those choices and the disappointment you have  faced and the discipline you should have chosen. Share that list with “Dad” over coffee and ask Him for His feedback and guidance closing that chapter, and how to move forward. Take a big red marker and write the name of Jesus over these disappointments and what God has shared.  Fold that up and put it in an envelope marked 2020 and put it in your bible.  We will be back to see how God has used them very soon.

  • The Discipline of Silence

    via TJC

    "Whoever restrains his words has knowledge, and he who has a cool spirit is a man of understanding. Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent."

    Proverbs 17: 27-28[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    “The longer I reject silence and solitude based on being "more productive"; doing some other work, laboring in some other part of the vineyard of the Kingdom of God, the more I actually prolong my growth in the grace and knowledge of the Lord Jesus.” - Alex Early

    I’ve learned that without silence there is no realization of a whole relationship with Jesus… not to mention, it’s very beneficial to your well-being to know when to shut up.

    Of all the examples of obedience and discipline that I can cite, the one of silence is the hardest to cite in a personal anecdote. Those who practice this amazing “gift” do not exactly shout from the rooftops “Hey, look at me! I’m serving God in my silence!” But there is one person from my past who stands out like a beacon in this area.

    My Mom’s Mom; we called her “Granny.” She served God as a Nurse in local health care facilities for most of her life. She was a Sunday School Teacher (small group leader for all you non-boomers), a preacher’s wife, a lover of Christ, and the chief cook and bottle washer to a huge, rowdy Irish family. 

    Don’t get me wrong; I loved, respected, and revered my Grandfather as a true Kingdom man and a resolute preacher of the Gospel. But my Granny was the one individual who, to me, was more like Jesus than any person I’ve ever known. Why? That’s hard to explain. She was a quiet person. When she prayed, she was incredibly humble and there was as much listening as there was talking. 

    I remember as a teenager sitting in her living room one evening complaining about not getting something I felt like I “deserved” and how unfair it seemed. As usual, she quietly took it in. Then she put her hand on top of mine, looked me in the eye, and said, “You know what you need to do?. You need to find somebody who’s in worse shape than you. You need to find a way to help them.” I didn’t get it at the time. Looking back, that was one of hundreds of “nuggets” she would dispense over the years to many grateful souls. 

    People saw Jesus in Granny and many times she had only said a few words to them. Silence is a learned discipline, and God had shown her its power and allowed her to use it for His glory.

    For God alone my soul waits in silence; from him comes my salvation. Psalm 62:1

    Daily Battle Order:

    Our creed says it best: “I will discipline my heart, eyes and tongue to be steadfast and faithful to the calling on my life. Pray that the discipline of silence becomes a part of your armor as you do daily battle and as you share the Gospel with a lost and dying world.

  • Discipline of True Fellowship

    via TJC

    But if we walk in the light, as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another, and the blood of Jesus, his Son, purifies us from all sin.” John 1:7[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    The above passage states that when we walk together in the light and fellowship with one another, Jesus Christ purifies us from all sin. I believe it means that if we discipline ourselves by having others around us to help keep us from sin, we can win the battle more than if we fought it alone.

    Men we do life together in the eye of our one true Father in Heaven. He created us to do something more than sit in the back and watch the world walk by us. We have a mission to make all things true in God’s eyes. We are here on this earth to save lives. The catch to saving lives is that we cannot do this alone. We may be able to save one, two, three and so on so forth lives, but who will help save our own lives? 

    True fellowship with one another is a key aspect of our Kingdom Men lives. We do life together, not separate, and not only when we feel like it. No, every day of our lives we must break bread. We need to converse through the good times and even more so in the bad times. We grow stronger together as a unit. I have seen men who are great leaders but still have no one else to hold them accountable for their actions. I have seen great leaders who have fallen on their own sword because they did not have that brother who really got into his behind about his decisions he has made. Many men do not have that true discipline in their fellowship to keep them from straying away from God’s true path for them.

    I have a cohort team that has been built on true fellowship. I have stated to my brothers that this journey will not be easy and will be the hardest they have ever faced. If you are willing to go into battle with me, then strap up and let's move as one. The reason I say this to my men is because I want true Bulldogs around me. I want men who can truly live life together and hold not only me accountable but others. 

    This band of brothers has helped me through a lot in the past year in a half. I have gone through so much loss and depression. I originally believed I could handle it myself with God alone, but I still needed to speak with my brothers who could help me through the pain and suffering. They could just be there for me to just listen and not speak. I used to fear speaking with other men because of how some would judge or even spread my testimonies to others that did not need to hear it causing chaos for me. But God has chosen the right people in my life that I can call true brothers who have talked to the right people in certain situations and also got in my behind when I have fallen into pornography's hole again. They have truly pushed me to be a better man of God and not a man of the world. 

    Put your listening caps on gents. Tomorrow we will speak on an art that some of us are not good at and this is what pushes men from brotherhoods. We will dive into the training of the Discipline of Silence. Bulk-up it’s going to be a bumpy ride!

    Daily Battle Order:

    Look into your life and see if you have that discipline around you. If you have that true fellowship to help you stay the course towards God’s will. If you don’t then reach out to us, and we can help you through that journey towards True Fellowship and Brotherhood. Make a change in your life and don’t be afraid of being held accountable because we want you to hold us accountable as well.[/expander_maker]

  • United, We Stand. Divided, We Fall.

    via TJC

    He said to them, “You are from below; I am from above. You are of this world; I am not of this world. John 8:23

    ….my kingdom is from another place. John 18:36[expander_maker id="2" more="Read more" less="Read less"]

    But He (Jesus), knowing their thoughts, said to them: “Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation, and a house divided against a house falls.

    Division is nothing new in this world and nothing new in our country. The Revolutionary War and more dramatically The Civil War attested to this division. At TJC’s Battlefield Trainings, these words hit home from our Gettysburg training.   Consider this excerpt from “The Gettysburg Address… It is rather for us, the living, we here be dedicated to the great task remaining before us that, from these honored dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they here, gave the last full measure of devotion that we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain;

    Stepping up and taking action is an act of supreme courage and we have seen that too in the history of our country. Do we have issues currently offering deep divisions in our country? YES. Are we willing to hang together as Benjamin Franklin was quoted or will  hang separately?

    One of my brothers in TJC told me, “ When I traveled away from the United States, I realized that we Americans are one people. In foreign countries, we can't hide our unique American identity. Foreigners recognize the way we sit, our nonverbal cues, and our gregarious confidence. “

    I thought about his statement and then I thought about our Kingdom as Believers. 

    Just as we can’t hide who we are as Americans, we really cannot hide who we are as Believers in Jesus Christ. Our Supreme act of courage now is to lead by our repentance and give testimony as God Himself heals our land, our divisions and restores what we have allowed the enemy to steal from us.

    But our citizenship is in heaven, and from it we await a Savior, the Lord Jesus Christ, who will transform our lowly body to be like his glorious body, by the power that enables him even to subject all things to himself. Philippians 3:20-21

    We cannot allow a divided house to be a divided nation any longer. We must take actions to fulfill a mandate from another president; that  “we here highly resolve these dead shall not have died in vain”. Or to put it another way, “And if it seems evil to you to serve the Lord, choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve, whether the gods which your fathers served that were on the other side of the River, or the gods of the Amorites, in whose land you dwell. But as for me and my house, we will serve the Lord.”

    Joshua 24:15

    Daily Battle Order:

    I am a Kingdom Man. I am called to break down barriers and free others from strongholds. I am a Peacemaker. My armor is Truth, Righteousness, Grace and Humility. I will stand in the gap for my neighbor and defend social justice for the marginalized.  TJC Creed excerpt
