I’ve been tapped. No ideas, no inspiration or wisdom to share. I would write, stare at the screen and start over, and over and over again. The product has not been worthy of this site.
I want to project proficiency and wisdom. To give you, the reader, a sense of awe in my abilities as a wordsmith. To show off my writing skills with the hope of attracting more followers. Just as important, I want to do it every day! But lately…nothing.
So I did what any red blooded Christian boy would do. I cried out to God. I asked Him to write it for me. I just wanted to bang on the keyboard as He gave me dictation. You know like the Apostle Paul, or Isaiah, or John on the Isle of Patmos. Just give me the idea, the title, the body and the conclusion. I would post it on this site and give Him half credit. Yeah that would work for me. But I continued to struggle and pray.
Then He answered me with these scriptures:
“And I, when I came to you, brothers, did not come proclaiming to you the testimony of God with lofty speech or wisdom. For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified. ” 1 Corinthians 2:1-2 ESV
So in reflection, I realize that I am not all that wise, or eloquent in word. I have no deep theology that will knock your spiritual socks off. What I do have though, is a great topic. the greatest actually.
So over the next several posts my subject will be Jesus and Him Crucified. It will be more like a journey though, a journey where I hope to find more intimacy with Him and you. I want to invite you along. I hope I’m up for the challenge.
