A man may say that the success of his life can be measured by the wealth he has accumulated, or the position he has achieved. He may say to the world; I have prospered from you because I have great ambition and a fire in my belly! But, if a man lacks wisdom he will be without direction. Without direction he will be without hope, the much sought after compass point of life. It may be that all that he has will soon be lost because there is no direction, nor hope in his life.

Ironically, when a man has lost everything he has deemed important in his life, he may see a clearer path of direction because of a new found hope in his life! The Bible teaches that abundant life is not found in the riches of this world, but rather the relationships we have in life, beginning with the greatest relationship of all, a personal relationship with Jesus Christ:

Matthew 16:26

For what profit is it to a man if he gains the whole world, and loses his own soul? Or what will a man give in exchange for his soul?


At the Rescue Mission where I work, this story is told over and over again. There is great hope when we walk through valleys if we understand that there is always a mountain at the end of the valley which leads to the mountain top!

About AOCI

The AOCI exists as a fellowship of Spirit-filled Evangelical and Jewish Clergy for the purpose of: 1) Exalting God 2) Fellowshiping and 3) Divine Networking.

We do NOT advise, nor do we seek, to bring members out of their current denomination or ministerial association. We seek to have a platform to UNITE the Clergy of the world in ways that can benefit not only the Kingdom of God, but also the men and women who faithfully serve their communities, one another, and God.
