Back in 2016 I started to actually devote prayer, time and effort to this blog. One of the first posts I authored had to do with Graham Cooke, a modern day Prophet that is associated with the New Apostolic Reformation (NAR) movement and New Age Theology.
Here is a screen shot of the most popular posts on this blog as of this date.
And here is a screen shot on the growth of visitors to this blog since 2016, keeping in mind that September hasn’t ended yet and Oct, Nov and Dec are still forthcoming.
I am so thankful for the many brothers and sisters in the Lord that I have encountered so far while working on this blog. As you can see, it takes time and dedication to make your number of viewers grow but the rewards clearly outweigh the work involved. And, as I’m pretty sure we all agree, we’re always learning and I can honestly say, I think I have personally learned a lot more than what I have given out. There are so many of you that I am indebted to.
Most importantly, for me, this blog is a form of discipline as it keeps me in God’s Word and helps me to really think about what I am learning. Many times I am prompted by the Holy Spirit to write on a specific topic or sometimes, just a single verse. The words that I author are obviously from a layman’s perspective and subject to error, but what I find most uplifting from this whole experience is the growth in strength of my personal faith in God, which has a tendency to spill out into more areas of my life. Faith is trust and trusting God enhances the love that grows in our heart for God, or at least that is my experience, because He is faithful and merciful.
The Bible instructs us to build one another up, to be gentle and kind in our dealings with others, especially with those whom we encounter that may not share our faith. God also asks us to be humble and consider others above ourselves, especially as it pertains to fellow brothers and sisters in the Lord, to not project an attitude of superiority in knowledge or understanding. And He asks us to be very mindful of the words that we use so that nothing that we say reflects badly on our Lord.
Short story, committing to work on a Christian Apologetics blog is an excellent tool to strengthen your faith, learn discernment, self control and to become aware of God’s leading via His Holy Spirit. I can tell you in truth, many times I have ventured towards the keyboard to react to something I have seen or read and have been led to move away from the keyboard. There is wisdom in following the leading of the Holy Spirit, don’t ignore His guidance. Don’t assume liberties where they are not given.
Worthy is the Lamb! Blessings!
