Matthew 25 43-46 (NASB)
“I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.'”

“God consistently honors those that take something that they should have loved, that should have been their security and their significance, and they put it on an alter and they kill it”
In his new book, “A Rooster Once Crowed: A Commentary on the Greatest Story Ever Told,” Atlanta-based author Bryant Cornett challenges his readers to action. “This is an opportunity to engage the material, make a decision about what you believe, and live that belief from this moment onward,”
“A Rooster Once Crowed” blends scripture and stories in a compelling,thoroughly readable analysis of biblical truths from Genesis to Revelation. Written for the believer and those “on the porch” in terms of their faith, Cornett premises his narrative with the account of Peter’s denials and the crowing rooster. “We are living in those precious few moments before the rooster’s first and second crow,” says Cornett. “A rooster once crowed is an opportunity to turn around, change course,reclaim our lives in Christ and run home. But that second crow is coming, and when it does, it will be too late to make that decision to believe—because then, we’ll know.” Cornett based his book upon a lesson he gave to Family Ties, a one-room Sunday school class at Peachtree Road United Methodist Church in Atlanta. He later uploaded the lesson’s audio online (it has been downloaded more than 8,000 times in 57 nations around the world.
Bryant Cornett grew up in a Southern Baptist church in Amarillo, Texas. After graduating from the Johns Hopkins University, he traveled to Vietnam, where he founded PiAsian Limited Partnership. He began his earnest pursuit of God in 2009. That led, in a not-so-straight path, to the seeds of “A Rooster Once Crowed.” A commercial real estate broker, Cornett resides in Atlanta with his wife,three children, a puppy named Cocoa Cola Cornett and a lizard named Leopard.
