In this first post let me explain the purpose of this blog. I believe the bible is God’s Word to humanity. I also believe it is first of all about Himself, His heart, His love and His grace towards us in Jesus Christ. In God revealing Himself to mankind, we are revealed for who we truly are (sinners) and our hearts are exposed (that God can transform and change!). And in God revealing Himself (and therefore who we are) ultimately in the person of Jesus Christ, the bible is secondly and specifically for God’s people (sinners turned saints!).
2 Timothy 3:16-17 says: “All Scripture is God-breathed and is useful for teaching, rebuking, correcting and training in righteousness, so that the man of God may be thoroughly equipped for every good work.” God’s Word (understood only properly with the help of the Holy Spirit: 1 John 2:26-27, 1 Corinthians 2) is ancient wisdom through which God still speaks freshly to our hearts and to modern-day issues by His Spirit. That is the purpose of this blog: to share God’s wisdom and show God’s heart through God’s Word, by His Spirit, speaking into modern-day issues as I feel led to write to or speak to. I hope what you read will encourage, penetrate and pierce your heart, drawing you into a real and/or richer fellowship of knowing His heart. God bless!
