2 Timothy 2:15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who does not need to be ashamed and who correctly handles the word of truth.


No more shortcuts to the decisions of my life. I will do my best to understand the weighty matters of my world.  It is my job to understand.  I must make well-thought-out and knowledgeable assessments of what is before me every day. My daily life starts with coffee and writing.  Sometimes, this combination results in deep and provocative ideas.  At other times it is just stating the obvious.

Most of my epistles are from my daily research of God’s Word and come with the satisfaction of personal understanding. The Bible has been studied, dissected, clarified, commented on, taught, defended, and remarked upon by smarter Saints than I. With the availability of so much information, it is easier to accept someone else’s opinion or conclusion than to make my own. The desperate need today is not for more intelligence or more of the gifted. I do not need those who would speak and write with great eloquence to make my case for me.  I need to write what is revealed to me. I will not be satisfied by the status quo or take anything at face value. I dig deep that I am not ashamed. I dig deep so that I may handle God’s revelation might be imprinted upon my heart. Please don’t take my word for it, don’t let others tell you the code of scripture, dig for yourself.
