It’s all Meaningless!

Ultimately everything points back to the wholly penetrating love of Jesus Christ. I am convicted with the belief that he came to earth humbling himself being both God and man to die as a living sacrifice for our sins! (John 3:16)

Today I’ve been exploring life and decision making, with a good friend who is at a point of great decision; he’s about to submit his university preferences coming to the closing end of his year 12. How do you decide with the large variety presented to high school graduates today? How does someone go from having no idea what they want to do with their life, to choosings a course that will set them up for life?

Well I,  as a Christian, believe in a God that has a plan and a purpose for each of us. I want my life to be a fulfilment of his purpose for me. The truth is that our decisions are best made out of a close, loving relationship with Jesus! I don’t know about you, but things have always gone the best when my focus is on God! When God is the focus of my work and interactions his power is released and I’m enabled to do things in his supernatural strength, rather than relying on my own human capabilities.

Paul put it in a way that clearly and perfectly exemplifies what we were discussing.

What is more, I consider everything a loss because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord, for whose sake I have lost all things. I consider them garbage, that I may gain Christ.

– Philippians 3:8 NIV

Everything is rubbish in comparison to a close relationship with Christ! His glory is my sole mission.


I believe that our sole purpose should be to grow closer to Jesus, subsequently becoming more like him. I hope that in everything I do he can be greatly glorified as my King and Creator.

Be men of love, men of courage…

Let us go forth to the earth sharing his Love! To live is Christ, and to die is gain! Philippians 1.21


Love God. Love People.

God’s Call for Us

Jesus changed the direction of my life, He made me new. Ever since then I’ve been passionate about seeing my relationship with God be more than words, but instead extend to my very existence. I believe that we are made to worship God, in every part of our lives: our work, our speech, our driving, our resting, our singing, everything. To me a life of sacrifice a life ‘sold out’ for Jesus is doing everything for his glory. As a christian captured by the love Christ gave me, I want to love God and love the people he’s put in my life and never stop telling the world how much I love my God. I can do all the greatest things for example, I could move mountains, I could preach the truth, I could become a martyr, but if I do not have love it is all meaningless (1 Corinthians 13, or The Song).


YesHEis are an awesome organisation of christians that are building tools and making stuff happen. Their goal is to break down the walls between us and sharing Jesus, so that we can share Jesus more. Now if someone is honestly just sharing the love and truth of Jesus I’m all in, so you beat I was sold when I heard about  the #goeverywhere campaign.  All I needed to see was the punch line, and I was hooked:


Love God.

Love People.


Its that simple, I love simple, thats probably why I love #goeverywhere. As christians we need to know the simple version of our testimony, of our mission. How do you expect a homeless person to understand you if you are throwing ‘Christianease’ and ‘big words’ into every sentence. Keep it simple.

#goeverywhere Campaign

So I’m pretty confident that yesHEis do Jesus loving stuff like this all the time, but right now they are focusing on a campaign to spread the simple yet profound love of Christ. Its awesome, for all the details check out They have an awesome story and I just love the Campaign video:

The Package

So heres my situation

I learnt about #goeverywhere, I loved it and I was telling everyone about it. Well obviously I was wearing the shirt a lot (and washing it a lot), but I made my mistake when I decided to wear it to the kids ministry stuff I was doing… It got destroyed.

Brendon to the rescue

Brendon one of the awesome guys that works at yesHEis wouldn’t let my situation go unresolved, I messaged him and laid out my situation. Then a couple of weeks latter, I get a package in the mail. New shirt, personal message and a mission:

tones of cards love god love people


I was excited about the T-shirt and the cards do look super cool, but I must admit when I saw that many cards I was a bit daunted by the challenge.

How on earth do I give away probably around 500, cards! All I can say is that now 3 days later I only have about 20 left.

I’m a youth leader at my local church so armed with a truckload of awesomeness (the cards) and a wearing the shirt, I am telling everyone how awesome God is and how this campaign is doing great stuff to empower us. I gave heaps out, and to people who got super excited like me, I gave a handful and together, we spread this simple truth throughout the youth program and further.

Because its not about us, its about God and God is love so Go. #goeverywhere
