There are so many trite things I could write about myself. I don’t really feel very profound at the moment and usually don’t at all. So, here is my weak-sauce attempt at providing the general public with an understanding of who I am.
First and foremost, I am a Christian.
Let me explain: I believe that the Bible is the inerrant Word of God and that the contained account of Jesus Christ is accurate in its entirety: Jesus Christ is, was, and will be eternally God. He was born as a 100% human baby to a virgin. He was 100% God during his 33 years on earth. He, therefore, lived a sinless life, was crucified as a substitutionary atonement for the sin of mankind, died, was buried, rose again after 3 days, and ascended into heaven (in His ressurected, glorified, PHYSICAL body) securing redemption from rebellion against God those whom the Father has given to Him. I believe that the Gospel of Jesus Christ has implications for daily living. It radically and fundamentally has changed my every day life from ethics and morality to diet and exercise.
Beyond that I am a husband.
This only needs explanation in todays culture, but you shan’t have it here regardless. I am married (you can catch my wife’s ridiculously well written blog here: Jovial Annette) to an amazing woman that God put in my life to make me both sane and nuts all at once… If you married your polar oposite then you know what I’m talking about.
As well as a father of 2 girls.
Lots of women in my house… I am outnumbered, outmatched, and out of my mind!
Incidentally, my wife and I also lead the Youth Ministry in our church.
This fantastically fun arraignment has been going on for the last 2 years. It has been beyond difficult and we wouldn’t trade a moment of it for any of this world’s pleasures!
I am, and do, all these things for free.
However, I engage with passion because of the great God I serve!
