Bryan Babyack was originally born in New Jersey USA, but has spent the majority of his adult life in Australia. Currently he calls Sydney home, where he resides with his wife, Danielle.
When Bryan was in his early 20’s, a drug deal went wrong, and he almost lost his life. While he was flatlining in hospital and hovering between life and death, Bryan saw the light and met Jesus Christ face-to-face. Miraculously, he woke from a coma after three days and his life was changed forever.
Since then, Bryan has preached the Gospel as an ordained minister and pioneer of Urban Acts Outreach Ministries. He has also worked as a production manager, artist manager, DJ and producer for 1 Way FM in Canberra.
By God’s grace, Bryan has overcome many trials since coming to faith, including cancer and a life-threatening disease where he lost the use of his legs. Medical professionals said he would never walk again, but they were proven wrong!
Recently, Bryan shared a special 5-minute sermon with us during Sunday Morning Together, highlighting his passion for the Gospel and spreading the message of faith and hope. Read Bryan’s full message below:
‘In Ephesians 1:3 it says, Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places in Christ. Then in Philemon, it says, I pray that the sharing of your faith becomes effective from every good work in you, in Christ Jesus.
There’s a common thread in Scripture that we have to know who we are. And the way to know who we are, is to know who we are in Christ. And I wonder in my own life, what do I talk about? In Jude, it’s the brother of Jesus who says, I wanted to write to you about our common faith and the salvation we share. But I found it necessary to write to contend for our faith.
This doesn’t mean that we necessarily hold up picket signs and yell at people and tell them fire and brimstone. It also means that the words of our mouth and what we focus on is important. In verse 16, it says, the Lord comes with thousands of his holy ones and says, A lot of people are grumblers, walking according to their desires. Their mouths utter arrogant words, flattering people for their own advantage. But you, dear friends, remember what was predicted by the apostle of the Lord Jesus Christ. They told you in the end there will be scoffers walking according to their own ungodly desires. These people create divisions and are unbelievers, not having the spirit.
The Bible also talks about that if we are of the Spirit, then we talk of the Spirit. We walk of the spirit. So my challenge today is Proverbs. The power of life and death is in your tongue, and those who love it will eat its fruit. What are we saying?
It says clearly that we’ve been blessed with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly places. So let us draw upon those promises. But how do we do it? We have to read the Word. There’s no getting around it. You have to get the Word in you.
The Bible says that His Word is inscribed on our hearts. The law of the Lord is inscribed on our hearts. So what does that mean? We’ve got to get it in our minds. We’ve got to renew our minds. And the way we do that is getting into the Word of God.
In Ephesians 1:13, it says, After you heard the word of truth, the Gospel of salvation, you were sealed with the Holy Spirit of promise. Now, this is one promise. You guarantee your inheritance, the redemption of your purchased possession that obviously Jesus paid with His blood. But what about here? What about heaven on earth? What about living the life that Jesus said? I’ve come to give you life and life more abundant.
I suggest that when someone asks you how you’re doing, remember Ephesians, Philippians and Colossians. They all say whatever is good, whatever is worthy, whatever is pleasant, whatever is a good report; to meditate on these things. Concentrate on these things. The Bible says, Encourage each other with psalms, hymns and spiritual songs. Let us focus on the promises of the Lord.
Let us focus on being healed by the stripes of Jesus waiting for that manifestation. Thank you, Lord, that you fill me with your Holy Spirit. And remember when things happen, Philippians 4 says Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again. Rejoice. Let your gentleness be evident to all. Do not be anxious about anything. But in every situation, by prayer and petition, with Thanksgiving, present your request to God and the peace of God, which transcends all understanding, will guard your heart and your mind in Christ Jesus.
Finally, brothers and sisters, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable, if anything is excellent or praiseworthy, think about such things.
So, Father, we pray now in the name of Jesus, that you would set a guard at our lips and at our hearts, that our words would be salted with truth and grace. In Jesus’ mighty, mighty name. Amen.’
