1 Corinthians 12:4-7 Says; "There are different kinds of spiritual gifts, but the same Spirit is the source of them all. There are different kinds of service, but we serve the same Lord. God works in different ways, but it is the same God who does the work in all of us. A spiritual gift is given to each of us so we can help each other.
The Holy Spirit has gifted each believer for specific work in God's kingdom. Scripture explains this idea by comparison with a human body: each person has gifts and purposes that make the entire system function well. But if the big toe wants the job of the eyes, the whole being will lose balance. Each part is crucial, even though some are less noticeable than others. Truthfully, those with less apparent talents have an advantage because pride and self-sufficiency may be less of a temptation. Everyone can do something for Jesus. We can all play a part in Kingdom work. Jesus tells each one of us to "Go Ye Therefore"
We can all do something for Jesus, pass out a tract give someone a cd. This is a ministry anyone can get involved in by passing on our Lonesome Road cd's to a family member, friend or neighbor. It's called the Great Commission and can be found in Matthew chapter 28: 16-20. Then the eleven disciples went away into Galilee, into a mountain where Jesus had appointed them and when they saw him, they worshiped him: but some doubted. And Jesus came and spake unto them, saying, all power is given unto me in heaven and in earth. Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you always, even unto the end of the world.
In Mark's Gospel Jesus tells us Go Ye Therefore into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature. And in Luke's Gospel Jesus tells us Thus it is written, and thus it was necessary for the Christ to suffer and to rise from the dead the third day, and that repentance and remission of sins should be preached in His name to all nations, beginning at Jerusalem. And you are witnesses of these things. Behold, I send the Promise of My Father upon you; but tarry in the city of Jerusalem until you are endued with power from on high.
And we find that power in the book of Acts written in red. Jesus tells us that we can have this power in Acts Chapter 1:8 the Scripture tells us, But ye shall receive power, after that the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and ye shall be witnesses unto me both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth. In today's language this verse says to me, But you shall receive power, after the Holy Ghost is come upon you: and you shall be witnesses unto me (Jesus) in your city, and in your State, and in your Country, and to the uttermost parts of the world. The power of the Holy Spirit is ours for the asking, so ask God how he can use you. Just say "Here am I Lord, use Me." You'll be surprised if you will just ask. And yes that goes for Lonesome Road too! I have asked and God is sending us on the Road in 2019 along with Chaplain Darrell Spicer of Channel 21 Ministries and Dennis and Leslie McKay (The McKay Project). The McKay project will be ministering in testimony along with some of their great music.

I logged over 4 million miles as a truck driver from 1972 - 2007 and I have written a lot of it in my songs. God has taken me off the road and put me into full time ministry, but I still have a heart for all you drivers out there.
