Who do you wanna be like?
“Know this, my beloved brothers: let every person be quick to hear, slow to speak, slow to anger; for the anger of man does not produce the righteousness of God. Therefore put away all filthiness and rampant wickedness and receive with meekness the implanted word, which is able to save your souls. But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing. If anyone thinks he is religious and does not bridle his tongue but deceives his heart, this person’s religion is worthless. Religion that is pure and undefiled before God the Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
James 1:19-27 ESV
Keeping in line with my theme this week in that imitation is the greatest form of flattery – we are going to be doing exercises that have been somewhat exclusive to red dawn for the first half and then for the second half we will have a special treat when it comes to imitation.

Announcing the presentation of 1 2 and 3 on the gobbler challenge prize – the point of this challenge was to have a Christmas gift for the winner and not just a patch or bragging rights but something that might help someone else… or provide a little humor as they try to use an empty gift card
Run flat called in to say hello to the pax during this
Prayer – put one hit in the middle and pray over him
The stats are over 70% in favor of Brad fighting a losing battle. Brad and Jodi have committed to bringing men in to an environment that will challenge them to get their life back in order so that they can be the men that they were designed to be. For some that’s a father and husband for others it’s a faithful employee. Whatever the call is the odds are stacked against them as the world would see it. We want to claim victory in the name of Jesus because it wasn’t for nothing that Charles bass ignored everybody that told him to leave Brad at the hospital and that Brad was just going to go back to his old ways. We want to claim victory in the name of Jesus because we know that Jesus has already won the fight and all Brad has to do is be faithful to the mission at crossroads. We claim victory because of the impact that we all know that Brad has had on and in our lives. We love you one hit!
Announcements – tree lighting this evening. Check slack
Crossroads cook out!!! Come love on those men! Give them your time!
Prayer – Jonathon green and Tim McCoy – ingleside presentation
Sloppy joe – honor band tryouts this morning at 1040
I hope y’all read to the end here. I’m honored to sign up to lead y’all any given morning. Most of the time I feel that I’m the donkey that the owner entered into the Kentucky derby simply to make him feel good about being around such amazing animals. I keep showing up because I’ve told at least one of you that I would the day before. Thank you all for continuing to push me to be better. Go be doers and not just hearers!
