Welcome! We are grateful that you have come to this site, and hope you are encouraged by it. The main reason for this blog is to allow pastors to write about the amazing gospel and how it affects everything in our lives. If you keep up with this blog, you could read posts that discuss current music or parenting or how the gospel influences work. Whatever the post may be, we commit to showing how the real gospel of Jesus affects our real lives.
Why “Gospel Ramblings?”
The Bible calls us to meditate (or “murmur”) on the Scriptures throughout the day. The apostle Paul says in 1 Corinthians 2:2, “For I decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified.” Therefore, we believe that the gospel (if understood correctly and embraced) affects our daily lives. As we meditate on the gospel, write about it and murmur to ourselves about the truth of God, we are changed in greater ways. That said, some people might think we’re merely “rambling on-and-on” because we just can’t stop talking about the glorious gospel. That is why we say “ramblings.” We recognize what many people feel or think about the gospel, but we hope to reveal that the gospel isn’t really a ramble after all. We know that the world around us (or maybe even other professing Christians) thinks we are just writing aimlessly and excessively on this blog, but we believe you can’t meditate too much on the gospel. We believe the real gospel affects real life and leads us straight to the throne of our infinitely wondrous God. We hope people see this clearly from the posts. All-in-all, we desire that these “ramblings” encourage you.
For a couple reasons. First, pastors are called to shepherd people, and no shepherd takes care of the sheep only one or two days a week. Our hope is that we can encourage people multiple times a week. Second, we hope people from various churches can be encouraged by gospel-centered pastors from other churches.
But there aren’t only pastors, right?
Correct. There are some people who are either pursuing full-time church ministry or are actively engaged in their local church while glorifying God in their vocation.
All-in-all, we hope you are edified. We desire that the real gospel be seen in greater splendor so that all of our real lives are affected, challenged and changed.
