Hello, and welcome to the Layman’s Pen!
The aim of this blog is to present Gospel centered, Christ glorifying truths from a layman’s perspective. What’s a layman?
A layman is a non-ordained member of a Church congregation. A Joe Schmo, as it were, of a body of believers. But don’t be fooled. Just because the majority of congregants don’t hold a position of Church leadership we’re still Saints of God. And as Saints we’re obliged to do our best to present ourselves to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth (2 Timothy 2:15). To be the blessed one constantly meditating on and being sanctified by God’s revealed word (Psalm 1; John 17:17)
In Acts 17 the Berean Jews were called noble for examining the Scriptures to see if what the Apostle Paul presented to them was true. It is this tenacious dependency on Scripture and the binding revelations held within that I aim to cultivate. By submitting to His word through the enabling power of the Holy Spirit we will inevitably grow in deeper understanding and worshipful adoration of the triune God and what He has done for us.
Yours in Christ
