I have added a "Links" page to my blog. You can access it from the menu below the header image (for email subscribers, you'll need to go to the blog in a browser to do so). This page is, initially, some blogs where I have gone to "drink" lately (to borrow an expression from another). I know that, theologically, each of the authors and I may have some differences—but I find a bond among us that shares a love for God, a heart to lift Him up, and a desire to share with, and equip, and encourage, others in their walk (not to mention ourselves as we do).

My fear in sharing (and even in writing on my own blog) is that I will further clutter your already busy plates. I fear, because I have found the temptation so strong myself, the danger of becoming more theology minded than we are servant minded. I love talking about God. I love testifying about God. I love reading about God. God loves our worship and praise and testimony as well. But . . . Jesus also showed us the way, and while He taught about the Father, and discipled those He had with Him, He also walked and served among the lost and hurting—ministering to them the Father's love and power. Then, He could say, "If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father," and, "I have shown you many good works from the Father; for which of them are you going to stone me?," and, "If I am not doing the works of my Father, then do not believe me; but if I do them, even though you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and understand that the Father is in me and I am in the Father."

So, drink deep. Enjoy. I'll add to the new page as I am led, but please don't ever let it, or my blog, draw you from the end of our theology—to know Him more deeply (which requires a vibrant relationship with Him and not just reading about Him), and being His hands and feet in a broken world crying out for a reason to hope, a freedom from torment, and a knowledge of their true purpose and worth that is found only in Jesus and His cross.
