The Christian walk is one that can only be done through obedience by the power of the Holy Spirit. It is not an easy one and to be honest, we fail daily. Part of our failure is due to ignorance. We believe ourselves to be in the right relationship with God due to negligent teaching from the pulpit. The other part is due to our lack of love to the God who first loved us. We may have accumulated knowledge and equate that with loving God. However, knowledge of someone is not the same as love to that person. In fact, our pursuit of knowledge for knowledge’s sake can become an idol. We must this day choose whom we will serve; ourselves or God. I want to invite you to join me as we look at scripture and other Christian works to see how we can apply them to our daily lives in devotion to Christ. In this launch episode, you will get to know me, my journey through theology, and how I arrived at the Reformed position. As well as the purpose of this podcast. It is my hope that this podcast will be edifying to you. Recommended books that will be referenced in this podcast: (Your preferred translation). Valley of Vision.
