Well, it’s been some time since I posted anything on this blog.
As I mentioned in my last post, as far as I’m concerned, except for some minor editing and occasional changes to previous posts, I’ve pretty much left this blog alone. For the most part, I’ve been working on translating this blog into Japanese, which with my wife’s help has been moving right along.
However, in the past several weeks, one thought started coming to mind. I preached a message at my church, and one of the main things I challenged our people with was, “Is the gospel an integral part of your life? Or is it something that you heard once and responded to a long time ago, but now has little relevancy to your life?
The gospel is not supposed to be that way. It is supposed to be something that permeates your entire life, affecting the way you think and act each day.
Over the weeks since I gave that message, a strong conviction came over me that I needed to expand on that thought.
Thus my new venture: a new blog on the gospel. It will be very short, especially compared to this one. It’ll be 10 chapters plus the preface.
The format will be somewhat different from what I did with this blog. Basically it will be something like a Bible study. You read a passage at the beginning, I’ll give my thoughts on the passage, and then there will be questions for you to think about following that.
It’s something that can be used in a Bible study group, or just for your own personal study.
I’ve already published the preface and the first chapter and over the next several weeks, I’ll be publishing more chapters.
