Over these past several years I have spent time meditating on God’s word as well as re-evaluating and re-strengthening what I believe. Various circumstances and teachings I have come across have pushed me to look into the past. When I ran across the Free Grace vs the Lordship Salvation doctrine I decided to see what the early church believed and taught about salvation and grace. I read epistles and writings of the early church fathers. I spent time studying the attributes of God and their classical definitions. Books like “Knowing God” by J I Packer and “Knowledge of the Holy” by A W Tozer along with other works like “True Spirituality” and “The God Who is There” by Francis Schaeffer. What has become most amazing and compelling is the depth of God. I learned that we were created with a need to expand to grow and have a need for wonder that grinds us down if we try to find this here on earth but brings us higher when we realize that this appetite will only be met by God. The challenges we meet in life are designed by God to help us grow and to point us to Him. The consequences as well point us back to God by communicating the deficiency in this world and the stuff of this world.
16 So we do not lose heart. Though our outer nature is wasting away, our inner nature is being renewed day by day. 17 For this slight momentary affliction is preparing for us an eternal weight of glory beyond all comparison, 18 as we look not to the things that are seen but to the things that are unseen. For the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal. – 2 Corinthians 4:16-18
This website exists as a platform to more deeply explore God; who He is, what He is about and how He relates to His creation. To explore God’s revelation to His creation; the Bible and to find our needs met in the words of God. To look to Christ as the bread of life and waters that never fail and to drink and eat the words of God so that they permeate our thoughts and transform our heart.
