The Series Essays
(The order is… oldest descending to newest… but, all have been edited, to one degree or another, as I grow in grace and knowledge in Christ. Newer writing can be found with essays on the Writings Page… Site Blog… GJ Off-site Blog)
Some of the essays are written in the format of a question or statement followed by scripture for answer or support.
Some are written with scripture references, which are listed in order in their entirety at the end of the essay. I often get more out of reading the scriptures as listed on their own than my own commentary… thus, the essays were written as so.
The essays are… just how I see it when I wrote them… I’m still learning… subject to correction… checkout the scriptures in context to verify for yourself.
These essays are subject to updates. As I continue to study, I come across scripture that makes sense in context of an essay… so… sometimes I’ll add it to an updated version.
17 Iron sharpeneth iron; so a man sharpeneth the countenance of his friend. Proverbs 27
15 And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. 16 Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. Colossians 3
26 What is the outcome then, brethren? When you assemble, each one has a psalm, has a teaching, has a revelation, has a tongue, has an interpretation. Let all things be done for edification. (NASB) 1 Corinthians 14
27 For, lo, they that are far from thee shall perish: thou hast destroyed all them that go a whoring from thee. 28 But it is good for me to draw near to God: I have put my trust in the Lord God, that I may declare all thy works. Psalm 73:27-28
