I have started this blog as a means of sharing what I glean from God’s Word during my personal study times.   It is born out of a strong belief that the Word of God contains all that people need to not only live a life that is pleasing to God – but also to live life to the very full – as God always meant for it to be lived.   I believe that the Bible contains everything we need to have the very best possible life (2 Pet 1:3-4).  The issue isn’t what God said, the issue is my understanding of what God said.

As a pastor, my heart beats for God’s people.  Making disciples is a passion which has always run deep within me.  It seems that the Body of Christ is not only barren of real disciples – but Christians everywhere seem to be crying out for some type of understanding about the big questions we all wrestle with:  ‘What is the meaning of Life?”  “What is my purpose?”  “How can I find happiness?”   It is those types of questions that I fully believe are answered in detail in God’s Word.  It is right at our fingertips – we just fail to see it and understand.

That is why I’m starting this blog.  I’m inviting the people who attend the church where I pastor (livingwordfellowship.net) to begin to enter the Word of God on a daily basis with me.  Starting in Jan 2012 we will be reading a chapter of the Bible every day – and I will share some insights from a reading a couple of times per week.   Even if you do not attend LWF – you are invited to participate online with us!  All you need is a Bible and some commitment.

One of the jobs of the Holy Spirit is to help us make sense of these timeless Truths.   So I will be praying that He will help us understand, reveal the secrets and Truth contained in His Word, as well as help us learn to apply these words to our every day lives.  I trust you will be praying the same.

So… welcome!   May this journey both enrich you and empower you to be all that God has created you to be!
