Virtually all the writings have come about through my heart’s desire to draw near and know the heart of my Heavenly Father. This desire has been significantly aided by two Christian ministries:
- “Leading the Way (LTW),” is a Christian ministry with Dr. Michael Youssef entirely committed to passionately proclaiming uncompromising truth of God’s word.
- “Renewing Your Mind,” is a Christian ministry founded by Dr. R.C Sproul committed to faithfully presenting the unvarnished truth of Scripture .
There is only one way that you can know what your Heavenly Father is like, and that is in His Word. For it written, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God” – John 1:1… There is only one manifestation of what your Heavenly Father is like, and that is His Son the Lord Jesus Christ. For it is written, “The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us, and we have seen His glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth.” – John 1:14.
There is only one source from which you can understand how to relate to your Heavenly Father, and that is the Holy Bible. We learn from people in the Bible, we learn from examples, from their sins, failures, repentance and their godly lives. But if we ever just learn from people and miss comprehending the character of God, and what God wants us to know about Him in these stories then we miss everything.
At school, we often kept a notebook handy to take notes on the teacher’s lecture. How much more important is it for us not only to take notes, but also to discern when we see, listen, or read about what is been proclaimed about God, or what God is teaching us through people? When something is important, you write it down. For this reason, God gave us His living Word – The Holy Bible.
I don’t write theories, I don’t know how to do that. When I get to the word of God, God shines that light upon my life. In His light, I see light (Psalm 36:9) which shines right into my messy heart. “For the word of God is living and powerful and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.” – Hebrews 4:12… The cry of my heart is to tell of the great love of my Heavenly Father for as long as I live. I’m always encouraged by the following words song by Keith Green:
“I want to take Your word and shine it all around, but first, please help me just to live it Lord. And if I’m doing well, please help me to never seek a crown, except to give all the glory to You.“
By sharing all the writings, I trust God will and is able to use it all to bless, comfort, encourage and help minds to be transformed into the likeness of Christ. When Christ Jesus said (in Matthew 4:4), “Man shall not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out the mouth of God” He is saying that the word of God will:
- Feed your soul when you’re hungry
- Sustain you when you’re faint
- Lift you up when you’re down
- Give you power to say no to temptation
- Give you strength to stand alone if you must
- Carry you when no one else can
- Satisfy your deepest longing and desire.
To God alone be all honour and glory.
