The Bible says in Ecclesiastes that there is a time for everything and my time has come to blog! I am honestly not sure what I am doing but I am always willing to try new things. I have written this first blog to state my mission for this endeavor in the form of goals.
The first goal I have for this blog is that it brings more glory to the Kingdom of God. I am confident that our Lord Jesus Christ can use anything to further His Kingdom and I do not plan on seeing the fruits of this ministry. I know that if I faithfully stick to my purpose the blog will breed a 100% success rate, for no wrong can come from the Truth.
My second goal is that it will create a wider community of believers. God calls everyone into community and clearly states in Genesis that it is not good for man to be alone and that "If one of you should wander from the truth, someone should bring him back" James 5:19. It is our duty to love and serve others faithfully. God demands us to share the Truth boldly and as we are told in other scripture the world will think us foolish for doing so.
Finally, blogs are an excellent way to fellowship and share ideas. I am hopeful that I will be challenged, proven wrong, and corrected. I enjoy learning from people who are more intelligent and are more mature than I. It is through conversation and debate that people, not only become more tolerant, but also learn.
For all of this is for His glory. I would not be where I am today without the love of Jesus Christ and community He has provided for me. Thanks be to God!
