Hello Dear Reader,
It has been several years since I have had a blog. In recent months I have felt a yearning to get The Determined Christian up and running again, so here we are! In 2011, when I first set out to write for my fellow Christians, setting up a blog was fairly easy. Things have changed. I am older now, and the technology to do this is a lot newer. It will take me a while to get the hang of it, but with some help and patience I think I can do it.
My purpose here is to support and encourage my fellow Christians in their walk with Jesus. We live in precarious times and it is of utmost importance that we help each other to remember that God is still in charge, even if it doesn’t always seem like it. One thing I would like to make very clear – I am not here to convey the lollipops and posies side of Christianity. Being a Christian is real; it is raw, and it overflowing with radical truth. The core of our faith is that God sent His Son to shed His blood on the Cross to save us, not to condemn us.
“For God did not send His Son into the world to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.” John 3:17
For the record: Unbelievers are welcome here, but I am not here to debate them. I will let others, who are more qualified and patient take on that task. As this site builds and grows, I hope that the community that is formed here will be Christ-centered, real, fun, thoughtful and prayerful.
Again, thank you for stopping by. May God bless you this day and always with His peace and joy in your heart.
