Speaker: Grant Agler

A system designed to keep vehicles from straying into dangerous or off-limit areas
Bridges | Medians | Curves
Direct and Protect
Designed to minimize damage.
The highway isn’t the only place we need guardrails.
Culture doesn’t encourage guardrails | Culture is content with painted lines
Billy Graham Rule
Harvard Business Review
“So what’s an evolved male leader to do? In the simplest terms, become what we call a thoughtful caveman. Healthy, mature, self-aware men understand and accept their distinctly male neural architecture.”
Ephesians 5:15-17 (NIV)
Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is.
One thing leads to another.
Ephesians 5:18 (NIV)
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to…
If more than one person has told you you drink too much… you do.
Ephesians 5:18 (NIV)
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery.
Guardrails safeguard us from handing over control of our lives to someone or something else.
Ephesians 5:18 (NIV)
Do not get drunk on wine, which leads to debauchery. Instead, be filled with the Spirit.
Defensive living
Stepping away from what can harm you is a step toward the One who loves you.

Grant is our resident farmboy. He grew up in the cornfields of northwest Nebraska. He spent his early days living far from God. As Grant says, "I gave God the middle finger and didn't really care about faith at all." As a young man, he became convinced that God was real. He gave his life to Jesus and experienced God's amazing grace that previously made no sense to him. After experiencing that grace, Grant felt God calling him to teach the message of the gospel. Over the past 20 years, he has been preaching and teaching. Grant, his wife, Bethany, and their four children moved to Michigan in 2011, and he joined the 2|42 team in 2019. Grant is always good for a laugh, but more importantly, he explains biblical concepts in ways anyone can understand.
