For those of you who don’t know me, I am the youngest of four children and grew up near Columbus Ohio. I graduated from Baptist Bible College in Clarks Summit Pennsylvania and I now pastor Maranatha Bible Church in Van Buren, Ohio. I also am a member and certified biblical counselor in the Association of Certified Biblical Counselors. What I post here is a result of my own time with God and how God is challenging me. Some of what I write is from my study for Sunday, at other times it comes from my personal time with Him or from experience gained as a biblical counselor. In one sense, this is an extension of my pulpit ministry. In another, it is an attempt to be transparent and open with my Savior. I want to be a help for the whole body. But please don’t let this be about me. It is all truly about God and our relationship to Him and His Word. Please interact with the Word. Interact with God. Interact with each other. By all of us interacting with God’s Word, we can challenge each other by being “iron sharpening iron”.
Keeping it Balanced is all about bringing glory to God through challenging us all to think, act and speak biblically. His word has given us all we need for life and godliness. Let’s allow the Spirit of God to use the Word of God to burn the image of the Son of God upon us. Give God the glory. He alone is deserving of praise.
This site is dedicated to bringing God glory. It is my desire to share truths from God’s Word that will impact the lives of others. It is my hope that people will read these posts, share their thoughts, be challenged to live more faithfully and the ultimate hope is that some will come to God by faith in Jesus.
God may you be honored and praised by all that is said here.
