"This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins."
(1 John 4:10)
(1 John 4:10)
"...it is with your heart that you believe and are justified, and it is with your mouth that you profess your faith and are saved."
Personal Note and Background.
A personal web site or blog is kind of an odd thing. On the one hand it provides an insight into the owner/author, showing their interests and some information about them. On the other hand it hopefully provides information that others may find helpful. That is my aim for this one. Like many people I have many interests. Foremost among them is that I am a "Believer." That is, I believe that for His own reasons, God created us, loves us and sent Jesus to make a relationship with him possible. Jesus' birth, life, death and resurrection pay the price for our sin so God can freely offer forgiveness and become our father if we simply believe and accept that. For that I am thankful and look forward to not only enjoying the privileges of being his son now but will be with him in eternity.
How does that fit with my other more "earthly" interests such as ham radio, backpacking, flying RC planes, etc. Well for me those activities are interesting and of value because they exploring and enjoying God's creation! He is the one who designed the earth and universe, including propagation, trees, the rules of physics, etc. So when I "play" with those things, I'm gaining insight into and increased appreciation for God, through his creation. It's not unlike when one admires an amazing painting, admit it or not, one is really admiring the artist!
Romans 1:19-20 in the Bible it says, "19 They know the truth about God because he has made it obvious to them. 20 For ever since the world was created, people have seen the earth and sky. Through everything God made, they can clearly see his invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature. So they have no excuse for not knowing God."
I hope what I record on this site is helpful in itself, but will also help you pause and think about the creator, architect, our Savior!
