Just this morning I was pondering the concept of consistency. It is something I am not very good at as anyone who knows me can attest to. I'm the kind of person who starts off strong, with great ideas and enthusiasm, like a greyhound from the gate but halfway through the race, I slow down, lose interest and in too many cases simply quit altogether. This is not a good habit for a Christian to have. With this in mind I sought out my good friend, the teller of secrets, the pool of unending knowledge ~ Google! I found some interesting quotes regarding consistency from many famous people in all walks of life. The famous writer Oscar Wilde stated that "consistency is the hallmark of the unimaginative". Mahatma Gandhi noted that "constant development is the law of life, and a man who always tries to maintain his dogmas in order to appear consistent drives himself into a false position." The motivational speaker Tony Robbins had this to say about consistency " in essence, if we want to direct our lives we must take control of our consistent actions. It's not what we do once in awhile that shapes our lives, but what we do consistently."

On September 24th the New York City Church of Christ sent 18 disciples (6 from Staten Island and 12 from the Bronx) to Lagos, Nigeria to encourage our sister church there. It was an amazing experience from the moment we landed till the time we left 10 days later. We separated into three groups to best logistically serve the 9 regions of the church.
Some of the highlighting moments were spending time in all of the regions and preaching at the various midweeks, the Congregational Teaching Day on Saturday September 28th, The Independence Worship Sunday, The October 1st Independence Day outreach to the poor, training the staff on Working Effectively With Non-Full Time Staff and last but certainly not least going to visit disciples who lived in some of the remote areas of Lagos.

I finished this book a little over a week ago. It was a great read and at times I had trouble putting it down. It is a great testimony to how God can bring us from any depths of despair into peace with him. It is vital that people understand that God can reach them and that they have not fallen too far from Him. It is worth investing in a copy for yourself or a friend.
You can also find out more about the book on outskirtspress.com. It is available for purchase there, as well as amazon.com and bn.com.
