The Essence of Reflection

Psalm 16:7 (NET): I will praise the Lord who guides me; yes, during the night I reflect and learn.

The Lord has given me so much that has overwhelmed me with excitement and filled me with wonder and awe. I feel obligated to share. So I write to share what has been shared with me.

I am constructively dissatisfied with much of what I see, hear, and read in the church. We are in dire need of sober reflection. So I write in order to be constructive.

The wonderful news of what God is doing to redeem all creation is being exchanged for self-help and life skill lessons. And it breaks my heart. And so, I write.

To know the Lord as He has made Himself known is the goal of bible study, with the result that we would respond appropriately in worship. Sadly, too many are simply looking for biblical principles. So I write to make Him known.

Getting meaning from our bible is both an art and a science. As a science it can be learned. As an art, the more you practice the science, the better you get. I write to make known the science and encourage the art.

Jesus offered one sacrifice for sin for all time. As a result there is no other way to atone for sin. There is nothing else you can do to improve yourself in God’s eyes than where stand in Christ. I write then, that you may be free. Free from sin, free from guilt, free from the law.

Galatians 5:1 (NAS): It was for freedom that Christ set us free; therefore keep standing firm and do not be subject again to a yoke of slavery.
