Kingdom Man and Some News

I am currently reading Kingdom Man by Tony Evans. The book is based on the Biblical alignment of true manhood as God designed it. It empowers men to live like Christ.

So far, its been a really good book. One that's extremely difficult to put down once I start. I'll definitely be posting more about it, but I would like to share a few lines from the book that I have highlighted. 

  • God doesn't always call the equipped, He always equips the called.
  • Being a kingdom man involves exercising authority and responsibility along with wisdom and compassion. A kingdom man intentionally aligns his life, choices, thoughts, and actions under the lordship of Jesus Christ.
  • Biblical manhood is when a man not only understands and embraces, but also fully lives out, the principles and truths in God's Word.
  • A kingdom man serves in a kingdom. God is the King. Christ is the head, the leader. He has asked us to stand fast. He has asked us to give our undivided allegiance to Christ's command through His headship over our lives, regardless of the cost. It is our responsibility as men to see to it that those under our care-those who depend on us and those within our realm of influence- have every opportunity possible for protection, provision, and safety. If we don't give that to them, not only will they end up suffering, but others will suffer, too.
  • Being a kingdom man is about more than just being a great athlete, a great businessman, a successful community leader, or a wealthy individual. Being a kingdom man invloves being the hero who aligns himself under the headship and authority of Jesus Christ so he can fully access the power and authority of Jesus Christ to positively influence and impact everything and everyone within his realm.

There will be more to come about this book as I read, take notes, and live it out.

On a second note, shout out to my brother William "Young Noah" Bohannon on the upcoming release of his music video and album coming out next year. You can read more about it here.

On a third note, I have been listening to "Hallelujah Anyhow" by gospel music legend Thomas Whitfield all week. I hope it encourages you like, it does me. Listen here.

On a fourth note, my mentor and brother Kevin "KC" Conley posted a new instructional video on YouTube for beginning and advanced musicians. Watch it here.

Lastly, my church music department is gearing up for our Annual Thanksgiving Musical. You are most welcome to worship the LORD with us. It's this Sunday at Community Fellowship Church in Dalton, GA at 3:00 PM.

The Synth Sounds

I am excited to share that my first jazz project is nearing completion. (Also why this is my first post this month).

Other than piano, you can definitely expect to hear sounds of 1980's and 1990's-era synthesizers filtered throughout the upcoming album.

I admire the newer sounds we have today, but none of them quite replicate the original, synth-led sounds of 80's and 90's music.

In my opinion, 80's and 90's sounds present the perfect crossover of analog and digital mixes that were limitless in use and expression.

It is no wonder that modern synthesizers today still draw inspiration from 80's and 90's technology. It was simply some of the most innovative audio machinery ever created.

No shame here. Expect 80's and 90's vibes to come your way in my upcoming project.

Stay Tuned!!!

CFC Youth Day

CFC Youth Day was nothing short of remarkable.

Children, teenagers, young adults (my generation) sang, danced, praised, and worshiped God with passion, love, joy, energy, and sincerity.

We led, both, the 8:00 AM and 10:00 AM services and the LORD ministered through us in His own powerful way.

I am very grateful to have preached at the 10:00 AM service. (Came from 2 Timothy 1:7).

Something amazing happens when we move ourselves out of the way and allow the LORD to communicate His Word through us. He does for us what we cannot do for ourselves. And when you summarize the meaning He brings to life, you realize that all the of the glory belongs to Him.

The reality of God's presence gives life, and everything we involve ourselves in, brand new meaning.

God's awesomeness was displayed in a monumental way today. A flame was kindled in our youth and the church as a whole.

Today was special.

Big thanks to everyone who helped make today such a great success, you know who you are!


The Audacity of Hope

Last week I completed The Audacity of Hope by President Barack Obama in 2006.

In The Audacity of Hope, Mr. Obama shares some of his experiences as a citizen and politician while also laying out policy-driven solutions to improve the lives of Americans.

Granted The Audacity of Hope was written before Mr. Obama's first presidential election in 2008, his thorough understanding of the Nation's issues are impressive and difficult to overlook.

Mr. Obama, in an academic prose, but down-to-earth tonality, hits on national issues relative to our political system, constitutional interpretation, economics, military policy, education, and community development.

I found The Audacity of Hope to be one of the better books I have ever read on American politics and public affairs. Regardless of your politics, this is a good read with the capabilities to expand anyone's understanding of politics and government.

In fact, much of the information contained in The Audacity of Hope is still rele…
