Introducing Equipped for Life Blog site

Posted on Updated on

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!

    I’m very excited about your blog, David! I am a little more than half-way through Francis Chan’s “Basic: Fear God,” “Basic: Follow Jesus”, and “Basic: Holy Spirit” study, and I truly desire just the things you hope to accomplish here for your readers for myself … to truly fear God and trust Him, to truly follow Jesus … to grow in Him, and to listen to and obey the Holy Spirit … allowing Him full control in my life to accomplish the things that God would have me accomplish. I am certain that God will use you through this blog to speak to me and help me. Thanks so much for being obedient to every call of God in your life.

    I have never known you to speak anything but from the heart, and this is yet another gift from the One Who loves you best, and allows you to share that love with us. Muse on…look forward to them.
