I am inviting you to my new blog, The Path. As the president of BiblicalTraining.org, I thought I would start by inviting people committed to BiblicalTraining.org.
My overall concern in life is to encourage people to have an informed love of God. The blog will be dealing with issues broadly connected to this idea, known theologically as sanctification.
If you would not like to be included in this blog, please unsubscribe at the bottom of this post.
The name of the blog comes from the book I am working on, which is based on the imagery of the gate and the path in Matthew 7:13–14. My concern in the book is to help new believers begin their spiritual journey well. But when I preached on the topic, I realized that many people who were raised in the church did not understand even the basics of the Christian life. This blog will address those issues.
In Colossians 1:9-12, Paul prays that the Colossians may be filled with the knowledge of his will in all spiritual wisdom and understanding, in order that they may walk worthy of the Lord, fully pleasing to him, bearing fruit in every good work, and increasing in the knowledge of God.
If we are truly filled with an understanding of God, we will live a life worthy of the Lord, enabled to do so by the power of the Holy Spirit, and will show it in the fruit we bear. As a result, we will continue to increase in knowing God.
That's what this blog will be about. I imagine I will be blogging twice a week.
Hope to see you there.
