What is your one thing?
I have thought a lot about what this blog’s one thing should be. What is one message that I would like to get across to whoever happens to find my blog?
I am not a theologian so I would fail if I tried to argue doctrine and the like. I am not a social activist so I would be misguided if I blogged about social issues. And I am not a counselor so I could be dangerous if I constantly spouted advice.
What I am is a normal guy with a normal life who happened to have his life turned upside down by Jesus Christ. I don’t possess any unique skills or have any huge insight but I do long for other normal people who are yearning for a deeper relationship with Jesus to experience what I have experienced. You don’t have to be super spiritual, weird, or withdrawn to transform your life, you just have to be willing to let Christ transform you from the insight out.
My one thing is making growth in Christian spirituality a doable thing for people who think that it is beyond them. You do not have to be constantly frustrated in your spiritual life. Progress is feasible and incredibly rewarding. Christ wants to work on you where you are and what you are dealing with. Your faith does not have to look like your pastor’s, your parent’s, or your Bible Study teacher’s. If it did, you would not be the person you truly need to be.
Join me in discovering a new life that you have always thought was possible but considered out of reach. I can show you a few small things that I have learned that make a huge difference.
This is my one thing.
Well said, Scott. I agree with your “one thing” completely. It’s great that we’re “normal guys with a normal life,” because that’s who God generally uses to make a difference. David was a shepherd, Joseph was a slave and Moses was an exiled murderer. He uses “normal” people because, when he works through people who couldn’t possibly do it on their own, He receives the glory. May you be blessed in your adventure.
