• FAREWELL - pt1 - Farewell

    31 OCT. 2023 · In “Farewell”, Rodney shares some parting words to the New Vision Church congregation in San Antonio, Texas after almost 12 years of leading and pastoring the local church. Farewells are always an awkward mix of memories, emotions, and expressions of love. Rodney shares some words of encouragement and warning as the church transitions its leadership. He reminds them, so many today are in pursuit of titles. They believe that influence, and power comes from the title they have. But, real influence and power is given from the God and people they serve. The apostle Paul reminded the Philippians that they were slaves of Christ, and that every time he thought of them, he thanked God for them. “Unbroken remembrance results in unbroken thanksgiving.” The prayers that are offered up for them are filled with joy as he reflected on their partnership in ministry. Lastly, he was certain that God would continue and finish the good work he had started in them on the day of the Lord’s return. When Jesus returns we will all be amazed at the work that was accomplished for the glory of God’s great name and eternal fame forever.

  • I DIDN'T SHRINK - pt1 - I Didn't SHRINK

    25 OCT. 2023 · In “I Didn’t SHRINK”, Rodney shares that transitions in life can fill us with stress, and overwhelm us with all sorts of concerns. The people in the Bible were not any different. The apostle preparing to leave and transition his ministry after a long extended stay and residing in Ephesus for over three years in prepares to leave the Christian believers and church he started in the city of Ephesus. He reminds them of his care and love for them, and most importantly that he did not shrink back from telling them all God wanted them to know. Pastor and church elders have a heavy burden leading a church, but it is also wonderful blessing when called of God to lead his church. Church leaders should never shrink back from their responsibility to lead and share the one message of the gospel: repenting from sin, turning to God, and believing in faith in Jesus Christ. At the end of every minister’s time of leading a church, or ministry may they be able to say with a pure heart and clear conscious, “I Didn’t SHRINK.”

  • INTO YOUR HANDS - pt1 - Into Your Hands

    18 OCT. 2023 · In “Into Your Hands” Rodney shares that You will experience a time in your life when you will have to take a leap of faith requiring you to fully trust, and completely place your life into God’s hands. It can be a scary thing. It is a common experience. But if you trust God and place your life into his hands, it will be the act that moves God to do the miraculous in your life. Christians are to live by faith. You can trust that while God may be unseen, he is not unknown. Amazing things happen when we give up, and surrender completely, placing ourselves into God's hands, like Jesus did. If you want to see God do amazing things in your life, you must trust God, and place your life into his hands. Only by placing your life into God’s hands can you experience the miracle of a resurrection.

  • HERE COMES THE BRIDE - pt1 - Here Comes The Bride

    10 OCT. 2023 · In “Here Comes The Bride”, Rodney shares that with the events that have been transpiring in Israel, Some have wondered if this could be the beginning of the end times, and whether Psalm 83 could prophetically be playing out right in front of us. A more accurate assessment is we are not at the beginning of the end, but near the end of the end. The Marriage Supper in Revelation 19 is a beautiful picture of the uniting of the bride (The Church), and bridegroom (Jesus Christ). The waiting time of the Church for the arrival of Jesus is coming to an end. Are you ready? The Bride must prepare herself for the marriage supper. A bride’s preparation involves both her works, and the work of the Holy Spirit. There is a divine cooperation in the preparation of the wedding supper, between the bride and the Spirit. Everything the bride has need of is provided by the Holy Spirit. Blessed are those who are invited to the marriage supper. There is no greater invitation than to be invited to the wedding supper of the ages between Jesus Christ and his bride, the Church.

  • THE GIFT OF A LEGACY - pt1 - The Gift Of A Legacy

    28 SEP. 2023 · In “The Gift Of A Legacy”, Rodney shares that “The Gift of a Legacy” means more than just heirlooms, financial inheritance, or the passing of real estate to your heirs. How much thought do you give to leaving “The Gift of a Legacy”? You can leave an heirloom, but it can be stored away, and never appreciated or used. You can leave money, but it can be spent quickly or lost in foolish ways. You can leave a house, but it will eventually need repairs, and might be sold. So, I ask you, what is the gift of a legacy you will leave? “The Gift of a Legacy” will outlast all the aforementioned gifts. The Gift of a Legacy allows you to change the life of the next generation and generations to come. An advantage to being a Christian is that we live for a purpose. “How do you want to be remembered? Your God-given purpose gives an answer to this question. The Gift of a Legacy allows you to change the world for a generation and for generations to follow. Don’t wait until the end to decide you need to think about your legacy. Start thinking today about how you want to be remembered, and what you will pass to the next generation.

  • CHRIST-LEADERS - pt1 - Christ-Leaders

    20 SEP. 2023 · In “Christ-Leaders”, Rodney shares that in the Kingdom of God, God has called us to live, and strive for a life of compound growth, expansion, and fruitfulness. Christ-Leaders think, “How can I multiply the Kingdom?” Living things are thriving things. In the church, we’ve done well at calling people to follow, but we’ve done a horrible job at calling people to lead. The call to simply follow demands less, so it produces less. Churches that have a deficit of leadership produce less fruit, talents, growth, increase, ministry, and salvations. Many of us have come to think that being a follower is passive. But, Jesus recruited followers who developed into being leaders. Be the leader God has called you to be. Take initiative, by trusting that you are fully equipped, and empowered to handle whatever opportunity comes your way. A Christ-leader is not just interested in reaching this generation, but the next generation to come. You need to be not only a Christ-follower, but a Christ-leader.

  • LOVE ME - pt1 - Love Me

    13 SEP. 2023 · In “Love Me”, Rodney shares that churches often speak of, and reminded us to love God, and love others. Additionally, we want you to know that God loves you. While not always addressed, you also need to be encouraged to love yourself. Having a healthy self-identity is not easy when you live in a world that constantly works against you having a healthy view of yourself. We need to develop a biblically healthy view of ourselves. Often how you feel about yourself influences how you think God thinks about you. However, what God thinks and feels about you is very likely different than what you think and feel about yourself. Reading God’s word will give you a balanced look at yourself. It is a necessity to “love me” if we are to love God, and love others in the manner we have been commanded to love, and the standard by which we will be judged. You need to love God, love others, love his church, and love yourself. God loves you! Isn’t it time you, love you, too. Start today – make a decision, begin to “Love Me”.

  • OUR LEGACY - pt1 - The Next Generation

    8 SEP. 2023 · In “Our Legacy – The Next Generation”, Rodney shares that stewarding the responsibility of parenthood, and our Christian responsibilities of passing our faith onto our children is a high calling. Our legacy is only one generation away from extinction. Faith is built and passed on by scripture, tradition, reason, and experience. One generation is to pass on their faith, knowledge, and experience to the next generation, and the next generation is to pass on their faith, knowledge, and experience to their following generations. When the next generation is shown, learns, and experiences a faith in God that is alive, it allows them to “set their hope in God.” The stories and works of God in the past, become the stories and works of God in their present, and they set their hope in the future that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob, and their parents becomes their personal God.

  • PHILEMON - pt1- PHILEMON - A Story of Forgiveness, Restoration, & Reconciliation

    29 AGO. 2023 · In “Philemon – A Story of Forgiveness, Restoration, & Reconciliation”, Rodney shares that true faith is expressed in actions, not just words. True faith is more than just intellectual ascent or emotional stirrings, faith should produce the fruits of righteousness. Far too often, the church has requested too little of people who call Jesus, Lord. Much of the churches anemic condition is it has not been challenged to live up to the life Christ Jesus has called Christians to live. The story of Philemon and Onesimus is a challenge to every Christian to live kindly, and be useful for the Lord. Expressions of kindness, generosity, and usefulness flow from our love for one another. Love is always personal. Imagine a church filled with kind and useful people. When it is people are filled with joy. The apostle Paul is confident the grace of Christ shown in Philemon will prevail, and go above and beyond what is required because that is what love does. On some level we are like Onesimus, and in Christ, we are called to live and act like Philemon and Paul. Most importantly, because of the work of Jesus we have been made right with God, and can effectively live kindly and be useful to Him.

  • TIMING - SET UP OR SETBACK TO SUCCESS- pt1 - Timing - Set Up Or Setback To Success

    23 AGO. 2023 · In “Timing – Set Up or Setback to Success”, Rodney shares that To experience success in life, business, relationships, or even your spiritual walk, understanding and embracing the truth about this contributing factor is essential, “Timing, Timing, Timing”! Think of the millions of decisions you have made over your lifetime. How many do you wish you could change, or do over? How many of those negative outcomes might have been different if you had better timing? Concerning your leadership, success in life, ministry, or business you must be willing to wait, and know when to act. Learning the importance of timing will help you make the right decision at the right time. Much success can be attributed to being at the right place, with the right people, at the right time. The opportunity of a lifetime must be seized in the lifetime of the opportunity. Today is the right time to master timing. This could be the difference between your unfulfilled dreams, and seeing God’s will unfold in your life. Right timing will create an environment for miracles and God’s moments in your life. Today is the right time to take your next step to living the life God wants you to live this side of eternity.
