I am a Christian, a follower of Jesus Christ.
That fact is foundational to who I am, how I think about things, and what I do with my time and life. Most importantly, for this blog, I write as a Christian, so my goal is to infuse everything I write with the Christian faith.
Christ is my Lord and his word is my authority. And, make no mistake, his word claims authority over everything. Consider these texts:
- Colossians 3:17: “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus….”
- Colossians 3:23-24: “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, 24 since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.”
- 2 Corinthians 10:5: “We… take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.“
- 1 Corinthians 10:31: “So whether you eat or drink or whatever you do, do it all for the glory of God.“
This is my foundation. As I write this blog, regardless of the topic I write about, I will seek to apply God’s word.
