The Biggest Loser

I watched part of The Biggest Loser last night on NBC. I really haven’t watched it more than a few minutes before last night. It’s a neat show, it’s amazing how much weight these guys are losing, but there was something really cool about the show. It’s sponsored by 24 Hour Fitness and the company I work for does a ton of business with them. Several of the weight lifting machines that I have designed were on the show last night. It’s a weird feeling when you see something on tv that you have spent months designing and building. It’s satisfying to know that all the computer time and shop time actually is helping someone make a positive change in their lifestyle.

However, I do struggle sometimes with wondering if all this work is making an eternal difference. I know Colossians 3:17, that whatever we do, we should do in the name of Jesus, but that doesn’t excuse not reaching out to others. I am probably too hard on myself at times, but I do want to remember that my main focus in life should be growing closer to Christ in order to bring Him Glory and reach others in His Name.


I am a former design engineer who now pastors Cornerstone Community Church in Galax, Virginia. I'm passionate about following Jesus and I love technology. I've been married to Jennifer for 28 years, and we have three adult children.
