Me with some of my new friends from the book signing in Dallas
Earlier this year I went on tour with my new book, The Good Life. Each night, I gave a talk that tried to answer the question, “What does it mean to live the good life?” In Chattanooga, TN, we recorded the message and I’ve posted it above. The book released on October 1, 2012 and you can purchase it here. To learn more about the book you can click here. You can purchase The Good Life album here. Are you living the good life?
Most of you know me as a rapper and performer, but the truth is, at heart I’ve always been a preacher.
For as long as I’ve been making music, my deepest desire has been to proclaim the Gospel and declare the goodness and glory of Jesus Christ. By God’s grace I’ve had the opportunity to use music to do that on a public stage. I’ve loved every second of it and I’ve tried to do it with excellence. Over the years, I’ve sensed God calling me and equipping me not just to make music, but also to preach and to write.
That’s why last year I wrote The Good Life, a book that dives deeper into the message behind my record of the same title. It’s also why I announced last fall that I wouldn’t be traveling quite as much as I have been. I want to learn how to be a faithful pastor, and that can only really happen in the context of a local church. So I’m taking the time to invest in learning from godly pastors at my church in Washington, DC. Lord willing, as I serve on staff at my church, I’ll also be able to develop more of the tools I need to serve long term in local ministry.
I’m trusting God that good days are ahead, and don’t worry – you’ll be hearing a lot more from me, from writing to music to teaching and preaching. I’m grateful for all your support along the way, and I invite you to join me on the road ahead.
Here’s the audio from a recent sermon I preached on Psalm 142. All of us go through difficult times, but the psalm shows us that even in the worst times we can find everything that we need in God. The four points are:
I. God is Our Friend in Times of Trouble
II. God is Our Protection in Times of Trouble
III. God is Our Treasure in Times of Trouble
IV. God is Our Deliverer in Times of Trouble
Here’s a sermon I preached a couple months ago on Matthew 12:36. I pray it’s an encouragement to you
My first time seeing my book at Barnes & Noble. Pretty cool. I’m praying those who read it are encouraged (Taken with Instagram)
