But I do not account my life of any value nor as precious to myself, if only I may finish my course and the ministry that I received from the Lord Jesus, to testify to the gospel of the grace of God.
Acts 20:24 (ESV)
Ah, blogging. Most often the ultimate expression of our pride and of our mentality of self-importance.
True . . . some blogs are of significant value to the world wide audience that they reach. These are rare treasures. I’m not suggesting that this is one such blog. I would, however, like to express the heart behind this addition of yet one more random, rambling blog online.
This space is dedicated to the community of Franklin Lakes Baptist Church. It is for our church family and for those who the LORD might see fit to bless through the ministry of our people. This blog is meant to serve, inform, encourage, and equip. It’s meant to challenge, change, inform, and give insight. We will (should) have multiple contributors and a variety of contributions.
In essence, this blog will be a mosaic of the life, theology, and ministry of Franklin Lakes Baptist Church. I pray that God will empower, inform, and control it’s content because, in all honest, I (we) have very little of our own insight and wisdom to share that’s of any significance and value save that which effectively testifies to the gospel of the grace of God.
