Thank you for your constant encouragement and readership. This blog has (joyously) matured past its current state. I’ve been convicted about making some organizational changes to it as well.
So, beginning now, please find further writings over at: firstandsecondblog.wordpress.com
If you’re interested in what the change is all about, read on here: https://firstandsecondblog.wordpress.com/about-the-author/
When it comes down to it, all of my writing can be nestled under Matthew 22:37-39:
“‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.’ This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself’.”
First and Second is a blog that will better unify my faith writing. It is based on unifying in words that which the Lord daily has to work to unify in me and you: the two greatest commandments He gives.
Blog posts on First and Second will be labelled according to the command they primarily focus on. The lines between the commands will likely blur though, as well they should. They’re “alike” for a reason.
It is through the first command that we are able to righteously, humbly, and effectively complete the second command. Through the second command, we get to live out and demonstrate the first.
My prayer is that through this blog, all who know or are just now encountering Christ will be blessed by the unity of His every command and His gracious enabling us to fulfill that which seems impossible, but is possible in Him: true, genuine, unconditional love. Both for the Lord and for His people.
