Ricky’s Blog

Thank You For Blogging With Me

The purpose of this blog is to discuss current events covering a myriad of topics. I have always been a person who is interested in other people’s perspectives. In Numbers 22 of the Bible and referenced in 2 Peter, God caused a donkey to speak to a stubborn prophet. The King James version of the bible actually reads…”the dumb a– speaking in a man’s voice”… Because of that, I’ve come to the conclusion that God can use anyone or anything to speak a word to us. Therefore, I'm open to listen to anyone, although I may not believe all that is said.

Before I joined the staff of Covenant Church, I worked in the secular arena for almost nine years after graduating from college. Before, I ever heard the term marketplace ministry, ministry in the marketplace was and still is my aim. Many times individuals come to recognize that they have the calling of God on their lives and the only way they can see that calling expressed is being on staff at a church.
My objective graduating from college was to minister in whatever environment I found myself. Knowing that the anointing on my life was to pastor, I decided that I would covertly serve as a pastor to my co-workers. Over the course of the first few months on the job, they came to regard me as “the real christian” because of the way I carried myself. My credibility with the people caused them to share their personal problems ranging from family and relational issues to career challenges and internal fears. Over the course of time, I realized that I would be on the staff at Covenant Church, but the passion to minister to those in the marketplace has never waivered.
I submit to you that there is more than enough ministry right in your circle of influence even greater than the opportunity to preach in a church’s pulpit. Make it your aim, minister where you are and watch the Lord manifest His presence and power through you.

I have heard it said more times than I can count..."When we elect the President of the United States, we're not electing a Pastor but a Politician". Usually this statement is made to justify some moral flaw of the person the commentator wants to support. Government is not a man made idea but is an institution established by God Almighty according to the scripture. What is the role of Government according to the biblical standard? We get an idea by reading the Apostle Paul's commentary in Romans, Chapter 13. In verse 3, Paul writes, "For the authorities do not strike fear in people who are doing right, but in those who are doing wrong. Would you like to live without fear of the authorities? Do what is right, and they will honor you." We conclude from these comments that one of government's essential roles is to provide laws that allow for civil order in a society. The laws established are not designed to regulate the conduct of the one who abides by the law but for the one who breaks the law. If that be the case, then how can a person who is elected to make or administer law be a lawbreaker? This notion would be similar to the proverbial "fox guarding the hen house."
