Do you ever wonder about why you do what you do? Why do you minister? Why, as a Christian, do you have a blog?
I've asked myself these questions many times, and almost ceased the small amount of blogging I do achieve.
Robert Murray M’Cheyne, on the 8th July,1836, wrote in his diary, "Since Tuesday have been laid up with illness. Set by once more for a season to feel my unprofitableness and cure my pride. When shall this self-choosing temper be healed? ‘Lord, I will preach, run, visit, wrestle,’ said I.
‘No, thou shalt lie in thy bed and suffer,’ said the Lord.
"Today missed some fine opportunities of speaking a word for Christ. The Lord saw I would have spoken as much for my own honor as His, and therefore shut my mouth. I see a man cannot be a faithful minister, until he preaches Christ for Christ’s sake – until he gives up striving to attract people to himself, and seeks only to attract them to Christ. Lord, give me this!”
Why am I blogging? Why are you? Are my opinions and yours so important or profound?
