A Burden for Blogging: The Purpose of “Learning”

The burden of my heart is to help Christians go beyond reflective thoughts on the Christian life and to develop instead a strong sense of practical wisdom and knowledge that will strengthen and spur their dedication to the things of God.

I have taught thee in the way of wisdom; I have led thee in right paths. – Proverbs 4:11

There is a multiplicity of people in this world facing a myriad of circumstances in life. Such people could be facing an eternity without Christ having never received the forgiveness of their sins; others could be Christians who are faithful and resolute in their walk with God. Some people have experienced great tragedy and have begun to question the work of God in the life; others are new believers looking for a solid starting point from which to embark on their new Christian life. No matter who you are or where you’re at in life, God wants to speak to you through the Bible.

My desire is to address the “every man,” those people who, like me, need help when they’re hurt, direction when they’re disordered, and courage when accomplishment is within reach. As I continue on my journey of “learning the way of wisdom,” I wish to serve and to share the lessons I have learned as I’ve walked along this path for myself.

First things first: If you’ve never trusted the Lord Jesus Christ as your personal Savior, please read this vital information about how to have your sins forgiven.

If you have been born again: Allow me to encourage you as you take time to read this blog. Let these writings be a complement to your walk with God beyond mere casual reflection. These posts can assist you as you dive deeply into the powerful and practical truths of God’s Word. If you let Him, your life can be changed by the Lord in more ways than you can imagine. I’m not promising you a life of “health and wealth,” but I can assure you that applying God’s wisdom will lead to a life that will be lived for God’s greatest glory. May God bless you as you “learn the way of wisdom!”

For Christ,
Joe
