Come with me?
Graceland is the refreshing place in our minds where we think upon all that is true about God and all that is true about us.
We are able to go there when we throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles and we turn toward Jesus, His kingdom, and His grace.
“Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinders and the sin that so easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us,2 fixing our eyes on Jesus, the pioneer and perfecter of faith. For the joy set before him he endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinners, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart” (Hebrews 12:1-3).
The God of the bible is passionate about redeeming all things for His glory. He is making all things new by his grace…not just a new heavens and new earth someday. He is doing that every day here and now on this planet and in our lives. This blog contains some of my daily glimpses into that in my own little sphere of life. I also offer services here that I hope will help others readily see and experience the Lord’s renewing work in their lives.
I write to remind myself that Jesus is renewing me, my life story, the people around me and even the world. I write about turning away from my own way of thinking and living (a wasteland) and turning toward and yielding to the Jesus, his grace, and his kingdom (Graceland thinking and living).
I write in order to give God the glory for what I see Him doing around me. I do have that dreaded “spiritual amnesia” and I need to read once again that Christ is renewing me, my life story, the people around me and even the world. He is transforming it all from a wasteland to Graceland.
