Another blog?

Yes, another blog.

Another blog to take up space on the world wide web. Everyone is trying to be heard these days, and here is one more voice.

I like to journal. Not only for the sake of reading it in the future, or for others to see it, but also for my own personal benefit that I receive from it. In putting thoughts into words, they become concrete and clear. Writing helps me to think. As long as I am going to be writing, why not share what I write? Others might be able to benefit.

I hope that thoughts I write here will help you (and me!) understand the riches of God's glory more and to appreciate Him more.

After all, that is the goal of God in salvation! Thrice in Ephesians 1 does Paul say that redemption is for the purpose of "the praise of the glory of his grace." Ephesians 2 tells us that it was nothing but sovereign grace that reached down and made dead sinners alive. I think a climax of sorts is reached in verse 7.

So that in the ages to come He might show the surpassing riches of His grace in kindness toward us in Christ Jesus. (Ephesians 2:7)

I have been saved by grace for the purpose of displaying the rich kindness of God for all eternity. I have been saved to display the riches of God's glory and grace. This I will do for an eternity.

I am impatient and I want to start that now. I want to make the riches of the glory of His grace known and trusted and cherished and treasured. I hope this blog will assist in doing so.
