It’s amazing to me how it is so easy to communicate these days.
Who would have ever thought we could reach people we knew years ago and see how their lives turned out?
Or send an instant message to hundreds of people across the world?
We can e-mail, chat, skype, or text. We can poke, like, face-time, comment, reply, friend, wink or post…and of course, we can blog. All of these were either non-existent or have taken new meaning in the last few decades.
What did we ever do before the Internet?
It is humbling to have the means and freedom to share whatever we’d like in this country. I don’t take that lightly, and I want to grasp the chance before me. It isn’t just a neat way to communicate, but a great privilege and opportunity of purpose.
Of all the things I could focus on in my little corner of the blogosphere, it would be to share my love for the word of God, and my faith in Christ. The groundwork for this blog really started many years ago, as God began to develop a real joy for Bible Study within me. This is a small way to share some of it. Sometimes that will come from studies and devotions I have put together, and other times from the simple, everyday conversations and lessons I find along the way.
“May God give us a will to use our knowledge, whether it be little or great! May we beware of neglecting our opportunities, and of not making the best use of our privileges! Have we light? Then let us live fully up to our light. Do we know the truth? Then let us walk in the truth.” – J. C. Ryle
You are a big part of this. Your comments and insights will enhance this blog in ways that I could not do alone. As Iron sharpens iron, we grow in fellowship with one another, and in studying God’s word together. That’s what this blog is all about.
