Edit: In the sermon, I mention that the word “Lord” (κύριος, otherwise translated “master”) is used eight times in 3:18-4:1, seven of which refer to Christ. That is not correct. I realized afterward that I miscounted. “Lord” is actually mentioned nine times, seven of which indeed refer to Christ (and one additional time if one includes the reference in 3:17).

You Don’t Have What It Takes (MRM Graduation Charge)

You Don’t Have What It Takes
Graduation charge
New Journey program at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission
December 28th, 2018


Kevin was one of my first client’s when I began working in the New Journey program at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission back in March. A little over 9 months later, he’s now also my first graduate — the first man to graduate who was assigned to me as his advocate.

As many of you know, as of November I’ve since moved on from employment at the Milwaukee Rescue Mission; I’m now working for my church, CrossWay. But I’ve been able to stay connected with Kevin, through my volunteer teaching at the Mission, and because Kevin attends CrossWay.

I’m incredibly proud of what Kevin has accomplished thus far, or more properly, the changes that God has worked in his life over the course of this past year. He’s an entirely new person today, even as God continues to do work in his life. I can look back at old habits that he has since identified and continues to change. He plans on pursuing education and job training, even as he’s already done, to further advance his career opportunities. And he is heavily invested in his church, with a deep appreciate for the role of the church in his life. Most importantly though, he places his faith in Christ.
