Amazing Snippets from Scott

Meditate on these Guest Quotes to see the useful wisdom that might come from God’s voice and resonate with your heart and be implemented today on your journey.

  1. When whenever we depend on a role, or relationship, or a result to sustain us, it’s not going to last very long.
  2. Grace never leaves us, in fact, the closer we get to Jesus, the more we need his grace. It’s a surprisingly rare message in churches that I work with.
  3. When we put on Christ, God already sees us as a finished work. The unfortunate thing is that we have to still live in this broken world for a time so we still have to battle this old nature of false self because those are comfortable learned habits and behaviors.

Key Points Discussed:

  • Scott’s story of failure and restoration
  • Your identity in Christ
  • Tree of Lies book
  • Lies we tell ourselves – I need to produce to be worthy, I am worthless, I am unusable, I need … to be complete
  • Good Root, Good Fruit

Epiphany or Miracle Story

  • Scott’s “It’s Your Sin” vision while driving down the highway in Orlando. This was God’s response to Scott’s outburst of disappointment over why he was being kept from being happy.

Take-Away Wisdom that leads to action today:

  • Sit and meditate and ask: Where am I trying to find my worth in all matters? If it’s not in Jesus, then you are clinging to something giving you a false sense of self.
  • In response to this take-away advice, Scott offers the FREE discipleship resource at
