31 Days with the Savior: Introduction

19736_27745_5

Gentle Reader,

Welcome to 31 Days 2014!

For the last few weeks I’ve been trying to come up with a good topic. I thought I might write about organizing, but, to be perfectly honest, my best tip in that area is: Clean up after yourself. I thought I might write about chronic illness, but The Detox Diaries covered that. I thought I might do a series on speaking the truth, but I worried that I’d wind up using this blog to deal with issues rather than go to people directly.

What to do? What to do?

Last Thursday night as I flipped through my Bible, searching for comforting words to share with my husband who just suffered the loss of his grandmother, it hit me.

Jesus.

His words, His actions, His person. All of Scripture is centered around the Lord and expresses His holiness, His majesty. It also expresses His great mercy in redemption. There is no figure in all of history so magnetic. There is none more important.

Starting tomorrow, we will be enjoying 31 days with the Savior. We’ll look at moments both beloved and obscure during His years of earthly ministry. We’ll consider how He has always been, and how He always will be, the True and Righteous King. We’ll look at His role and presence in creation. We’ll look forward to His return.

Let us begin this by loving the Lord, and let us end this by loving Him more.

My journey to faith. (15)
