” but made Himself of no reputation,” Philippians 2:7

“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2

“I blog anonymously because , (as a personal view-point), it’s not about me, it’s about Jesus and His great love for you.”

My parents didn’t go to church, so I did not have Christian upbringing.

I’m not sure if that is entirely a bad thing, though it’s far from ideal but I don’t have any carryover resentment from being forced to go to church when I didn’t want to.

I accepted Jesus Christ as my Savior when I was a young boy because friends invited me to go to church with them. I was taught about heaven and hell and my need for salvation because of sin, and how Jesus sacrificial death on the cross had paid for my sin.I also learned that Jesus willingly laid down His life because he loved us and wanted to make a way to restore the relationships between mankind and Holy God.

As time went on my church went through changes, and so did I.

Childhood was visited by tragedy and heart ache when my father died in an accident when I was 11.

After a few years, I started going back to church. I was about sixteen and had way more zeal than brains.

I had to learn from the Bible that God is love because that was not clearly taught in church.

When I learned that God is love and that He showed the full measure of His love for us on the cross when He paid for our sins, I found out what this means, “we love Him because He first loved us.”

I married my high school sweetheart and we started a family. As my two sons grew I became deeply concerned that they also would come to know that God is love.

I also realized that I needed to protect them from the negative influence of unloving churches and teaching, and that mankind is most often a poor reflection of God’s love.

I knew my sons would grow to resent a God who was mis-represented as mean, unmerciful ,and unloving.

I also needed that assurance of a loving God in my life if I was going to be a good husband and father.

We have attended many different kinds of Churches and different denominations. I have attended Baptist, Presbyterian, Free Methodist, Nazarene and non denominational churches, all in a life long quest for peace ,fulfillment, and a genuine intimate relationship with God through Jesus Christ, His Son.

I have found that the greatest need for the church and the world is for Christians everywhere to love God with all our heart and all our soul and all our mind, and all our strength.

In short, we need a revival of our grasp of the love of God.

We have been given the most amazing reason to love God; God Came Down in the personage of Jesus Christ and offered Himself as sacrifice for our sins for all who will believe and accept Him as savior.

He personally paid the debt we owed Him and I am astounded by such an overwhelming act of amazing love.

Christ is the best thing about life to me. I hope to be able to share Him with everyone.

Things I Try to Always Keep In Mind When Writing

I try to Gospelize everything I write about and give Jesus Christ His rightful place of preeminence in all theology and themes.

I emphasize Christ’s divinity.

I use Biblical Order of Importance. I call this Biblical Emphasis. God is love shown through Christ His Son, and the Bible, redemption, all that is contained in the Bible comprises God’s love letter to mankind.

I strive to speak the truth in love.

I believe God’s love is the Supreme Apologetic and that Christ is,”Our First Love.” Revelation 1:5

And I strive to put every concept in condensed form and simplify as much as possible without loosing meaning or purpose.

It is my goal to encourage others to join together with Christ’s purpose to reach the world for Him, and to be an on-line community for the Great Commandment,(Love one another), and the Great Commission,(Preach the Gospel and make disciples).

I will repost blogs and link media that are exemplify Christ’s rightful place of honor as our Lord and our God.

“He who speaks on his own does so to gain honor for himself, but he who works for the honor of the one who sent him is a man of truth; there is nothing false about him.”

 John 7:18

“For I resolved to know nothing while I was with you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” 1 Corinthians 2:2

My hope is that you find direction ,encouragement, edification , faith ,hope and Love, and that you are inspired to know and love God,…

“For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son,that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.

John 3:16

You can know Him. Only believe.

He paid our debt in full because He first loved us.

Our Lord and God is Christ, our message is His Gospel, and our context is God’s Love.
