Hi, I am here to write about The Word of God. That is right, Christ, as He is referred to in John 1:1 (NASB). “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Of course, I am sure that my life will spill over into my blogs, as well as my opinions. After all, the blog is entitled WordServant. The servant will seep through.
To be honest, as a believer in Christ, I sometimes feel as though we aren’t always transparent and real about where we are in our walks with Jesus. We don’t dig into what the Bible has to say about certain things, leaving the Scripture to our pastors to rightly divide for us on Sundays. We post Scriptural memes and check-in on social media so everyone knows we are at church; but do we set aside time in our daily lives to develop our relationship with Christ? How many of us find ourselves too busy to crack open our Bibles? We’ve all been there, right? I mean, I get it. Life gets crazy. I know mine has. There was a period in my faith where all I had was the ability to say that I believed and nothing else good to show for it.
Yet, the Great Commission tells us that we are to go and make disciples of all nations. “Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age." (Matthew 28:19-20 NASB). Years ago, that right there would have lost me. I don’t like crowds. I don’t enjoy talking to large groups of people. You know, the by-products of Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder. However, that is a cop-out. I can write. I can share the Gospel by way of blog.
In the last year, God has shown me that I can do more with what I have and be a better steward with my gifts and talents. That goes for my time, my studies and sharing them where others may benefit through their own faith being strengthened or by coming to a decision to follow Christ. So, if this is the first time you have ever heard of Jesus: He’s an awesome God who died and rose from the grave for all of us so that we may have eternal life. I would strongly recommend finding a church in your local community where you live and seeing about developing a relationship with Him!
To accept Him as the Lord of your life, well, all I did was decide to follow Him and pray something like:
“Jesus, I don’t know You, but I want to know You. Please come into my heart and life.”
Until Next Time
Blessings in Christ
