Inadequate in Myself

We are not adequate to think anything as coming from ourselves, but our adequacy comes from God (2 Corinthians 3:5)

The grace of God! We often think of it solely in terms of justification and the transformation that takes place at that moment, but it encompasses all that we are and do. Apart from that grace we are nothing and can do nothing.

As I undertake the task of blogging, I do so mindful of the fact that in myself I have nothing to share. Any gifts I possess, any thoughts I express; all are the product of my relationship with God and the indwelling power of the Holy Spirit.

The blogs here will sometimes involve reflections on theological or philosophical matters. Sometimes I will include elements from life and family (not that those first two can ever really be separated). But mostly, I think what goes on here will be a chance for me to fellowship with friends and family and to further catch a glimpse of how BIG God is and how sufficient His grace is to every aspect of my life.

Blessings!

Welcome to the Blogosphere, Tim. Just so we are clear, this blog is not endorsed by SWBTS, right? Just kidding, Doc. Have fun blogging. I know I sure have.

You're not going to be one of those "once-in-a-blue-moon" bloggers, are you? I hate that! Beware, blogging can be almost as addictive as Facebook!

I have had so much trouble posting responses to your comments - we'll see if this works.

I hope to be both consistent an clear in my blogging. If I fail in either being concise or clear, please let me know.

The "Dr." is for intimidation purposes only :-). Please, continue to call me Tim.

Thanks for checking in!
