Behold, I stand at the door and knock;
if anyone hears my voice and opens the door,
I will come in to him and will dine with him,
and he with me.
He who overcomes, I will grant to him to sit down with me
on my throne, as I also overcame
and sat down with my Father on His throne.
~Revelation 3:20-21, New American Standard Bible~
2013 is coming to a close and many bloggers are engaged in goal setting. Christian Apologia is no exception. The theme for 2014 is Revelation 3:20-21. There are two aspects of this theme. The first is regarding the nature of bringing the truth and light to many whose hearts are failing them. The second is to provide assurance that once we have opened our hearts and minds to Christ and make the commitment to follow him, we receive a blessing to sit with him in an exalted state. 2014 is a personal commitment to dedication (or for some – a re-dedication to the simple message that Jesus Christ is the Savior of all humanity). How then is this going to be accomplished at Christian Apologia? Here is are the goals and new vision for this particular blog:
Focus on the simple message as established within the confines of the Old and New Testament where one comes to an understanding of who Jesus Christ is and what his ministry is all about. To accomplish this, Christian Apologia is going to publish practical short devotions for inspiration and reflection, based on the readings of the Old and New Testament scriptures. These devotions help facilitate discussion and encourage daily reading through the word of God in order to receive personal inspiration for that day.
Provide commentary on cultural issues from a fresh Christian perspective and with a sound Biblical Response.
Inspiring articles that focus on Spiritual maturation where the eight principles of the Beatitudes are taught (Matthew 5) for those new to the Christian Faith, or refreshing for those who have long been committed Christians.
Biblical studies and scriptural expository teachings from a fresh and new perspective in a post-modern society. Meaning, finding relevance from the scriptures that address and answer the questions of today.
Preaching the Gospel of Jesus Christ and giving an answer to the hope that lies within each one of us individually.
The hope of Christian Apologia is to engage in the discussion of our times from a Christian Perspective and provide adequate, sound responses from what the scriptures reveal. We do know that the days are growing shorter and darker and the coming of Christ is soon at hand. We are still called to preach, called to teach, and called to make disciples as the word goes forth and is preached to every person.
