Great is thy faithfulness

August 4, 2009

Bob Kauflin of Sovereign Grace Ministries has a great post today over at Worship Matters on the history behind the great hymn “Great is thy Faithfulness”.  It tells the story of believer who sought to daily walk with God, to be faithful in the details of his life and in doing so discovered the great faithfulness of a great God.  May God grant that each of us find this same daily walk with a great and faithful God.

In the beginning…….

The essence of biblical discipleship is thinking biblically so that we can act biblically. Right acting flows from right thinking.

The late Dr. James Montgomery Boice repeated this formula on his radio program, The Bible Study Hour. The program was described as a ministry designed to help us “think and act biblically”.

I have used it for many years in teaching youth and adults as a fine shorthand to define discipleship.

That being said we can move to the purpose of this blog. First and foremost it is an extension of my teaching ministry and personal walk with Christ.

Secondly, this will be a place where believers and unbelievers can look at the theological, political, sociological, philosophical issues of our day and culture, attempting to address them from a biblical mindset.

So I invite you to join with me on this journey of being “transformed by the renewing of our minds” so that instead of being conformed to the patterns of this world (in both our thinking and acting) we will instead approve – identify – God’s will, for ourselves, our culture, our world.
