This is my first post, so be gentle.
I have to admit, the idea for doing a blog is not my own. Yes, I have toyed with the idea. I even started a personal blog that is hanging around the internet somewhere. But my good friend (and our Minister of Music) mentioned that it might be interesting. Within the next couple of weeks, I had a couple of people ask about “my blog”, or express interest in reading my blog, should I ever decide to start one. So, here we are.
Let me tell you my idea, and you tell me what you think, and what you might like to see in the future.
To start, I want to add some devotional thoughts, or even some further thoughts (and clarification) about my most recent sermon, or sermons. That means we’ll be talking quite a bit about Romans for a while! Hopefully you’ll find this helpful, and perhaps meaningful as you continue to study the word.
I also hope to mention some other thoughts that I have about things like missions, theology, the Bible, and other things I get asked about every now and then.
What that means is this: you can hold me accountable for the sermon article every week. You can ask and encourage other things during the week, and I’ll do my best to respond. Hopefully I will get into the habit of having a little inspiration of my own.
My goal is not to be a political commentator, a sports fan, a movie buff, or other things I don’t find related to my role as a pastor, and as a minister of the gospel. I also want to be a resource for you, the reader. I don’t want to add to the noise out there in the blogosphere.
My hope for you is that you are inspired to think more often about God, about your relationship with Him, about your relationships with others, and how your obedience is reflected in your daily walk with Him.
Thanks for reading, and I look forward to hearing from you.
