[LiveSharp's Summer Vacation:]
Starting Monday, June 11th we will begin our summer vacation and we will stop our regular publishing schedule over the summer months. As opposed to every weekday, we will be publishing a “Post from the Past” or an original article every Monday and periodically we will stop by to share updates about our film we are producing this summer (Never Too Much), as well as quotes from our film.
We hope you all have a blessed summer; we urge you to use this time to grow in your relationship with the Lord and to share the Gospel fervently!
The purpose for LiveSharp.org:
The purpose of LiveSharp™ is to give you a place where you can come, learn, and share about living the Sharp life-style. The sharp life-style is one rooted in living against low expectations, but –frankly— going far beyond that. We’re not just rebelling, but taking a structured, narrowed, directed, and Sharp stand for Christ! So here at LiveSharp™, a team of contributors and I will assist you every week with posts that will encourage you in this walk, a walk focused on living Sharply for the glory of God!
This is a blog for those of us who have been called by God to get down and get dirty to glorify our Lord through every action we make. Yes, it’s a tough job. Some of you might have heard the slogan the US Marines commonly use – “The Few, the Proud, the Marines” – this is kind of the way it is for us. However, there is one huge difference to this example; yes, we should be proud of our God and express that by our actions. However, we didn’t choose or even have an option to be chosen by Him. He chose us, and our reaction to this should be a heart of humble thanksgiving and praise to Him. We are very blessed, and to put it into literal terms, “lucky”, to be part of this group of people chosen by God. We did nothing for God to choose us, but he chose us none the less! So we ought to praise His mighty and glorious Name forever and ever! But why? Why would He choose us? To glorify Him! 1 Corinthians 10:31 – “So whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” This is our mission and our mandate given to us by God. We are a special group of like-minded individuals learning how to live out our faith in a Sharp manner and our goal is to the take the Rebelutionary mindset to a whole new level. If you haven’t read the Harris brothers’ book, “Do Hard Things”, we urge you to read it before you start following this blog, because what the book stands for is exactly what this blog is going to be about except, like I said, we’re bringing it to a whole new level of Sharpness. This is a blog not for people who want to serve God, but for people who are serving God.
“For the word of God is living and active, sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing to the division of soul and of spirit, of joints and of marrow, and discerning the thoughts and intentions of the heart.” -Hebrews 4:12
