What motivates us

This past weekend our men went on retreat and were blessed to be led by Pastor Bob Burrelli who pastors Grace Bible Church just outside Boston. Bob and I were at Dallas Seminary together and he went on to Cambridge and earned his Ph.D. in Old Testament. Bob is also a certified counselor with the National Association of Nouthetic Counselors, an adjunct faculty member of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, and an editor for the Journal of Modern Ministry. All that to say this: In the simple unfolding of God’s word, Bob led our men in a biblical study of what motivates us as he unpacked the doctrine of the heart. It was refreshing to look into God’s word as men and see the reality that it is not our circumstances but our heart that drives every aspect of our lives. Praise be to God for his gifted servants.
