Today marks the beginning of the Equipped for Life Blog site. The most effective blog sites have consistent entries and excellent content. I can promise neither! But I do want to provide a place for biblical observations about life and helpful resources to help others grow in Christ.
Information alone is insufficient to produce growth. There must be a heart that longs to know Christ. A. W. Tozer in his book, The Pursuit of God, wrote,
“…Too many…seem satisfied to teach the fundamentals of the faith year after year, strangely unaware that there is in their ministry no manifest Presence, nor anything unusual in their personal lives….
For it is not mere words that nourish the soul, but God Himself, and unless and until the hearers find God in personal experience they are not the better for having heard the truth. The Bible is not an end in itself, but a means to bring men to an intimate and satisfying knowledge of God, that they may enter into Him, that they may delight in His Presence, may taste and know the inner sweetness of the very God Himself in the core and center of their hearts.”
That is at the core of what I long for…for myself and for those I love. My prayer is that this site will help equip you in your pursuit of Christ. Glad you found me and I hope you will share this page with others. I look forward to hearing from you!
