Sermon Sound :: A Tough Row to Hoe

We are still in the process of setting up our new podcast along with our new website, but as of right now it is not functional. We have, however, uploaded the latest message from this past Sunday. If you are interested in it you can access it by using the media player on the front page of

The message is the first in our new series entitled “The Bible & The Bush”. This message in particular is entitled “A Tough Row to Hoe” and examines Christ’s declaration that we must count the cost of discipleship as we follow Him from Luke 14:25-35.

Micah is a husband to Tracy & a daddy to Grace, Kessed & Haddon. He’s Senior Pastor at Brainerd Baptist Church in Chattanooga, TN. Most of all, he’s a debtor to grace.

  1. I feel your pain! My goal was to start podcasting from January’s first services (and new series). Monday, I tried to listen to the audio CD… Nothing. I didn’t even know it was possible to record nothing, but we managed it!

  2. I just listened to The Bible and The Bush message. This message hits home for me. Perhaps that’s why I found your website. I’m not exactly sure how I found it. So be encouraged that your life is making a difference. I have been dealing with loving God more than my family, especially my children. I’m from California and I’m not very proud to say so. At 8 months of age I had meningitis and as a result I have epilepsy or seizures. I didn’t grow up in a Christian home. In fact life was too unbearable having seizures and an emotionally abusive father that in my seventh grade year I overdosed on my medication. I slept for 16 ours that night. While taking me to the hospital my dad said, “There goes $25.00 down the drain because you tried to kill yourself.” Shortly after that I went camping with my friend and her church. I accepted the Lord and got baptized. It wasn’t easy being a Christian in an unbelieving home, but God took care of me. I found my husband at a church in 2001. It was totally God’s timing because the seizures worsened that year. Before I got married I was having about 2 a month. Then it went up to about 4 a month. Then I got pregnant and was having about 14-21 a month still on medication. But I’m so grateful because my son turned out healthy. I was going to get surgery but the doctors tried one more medication and the seizures have been controlled for almost two years. I’m still taking medication and I had a second baby who is also healthy. I owe a lot to God. How could I ever withhold anything from God, especially that He also gave His only Son. I must do what He’s called us to do but it’s scary. I just have to trust Him and honor Him for all that He’s done. Thanks for the message though, it’s encouraging.
