Beginnings

This blog is going to be centered around the many quotes that portrayed the lives of godly men and women throughout the ages. I pray that you would be encouraged and strengthened with the strength, faith, and love that God has demonstrated through these people. Sinners they were (are), like us, but they have great insight, for all of us, on how to live wholly devoted lives for the sake of Christ. That is the main theme of this blog. To be encouraged and strengthened on how to live a life completely sold out for Jesus Christ, on fire for the Gospel. This verse pretty much sums up this blog:

"Therefore, since we are surrounded by so great a cloud of witnesses, let us also lay aside every weight, and sin which clings so closely, and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy that was set before Him endured the cross, despising the shame, and is seated at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider Him who endured from sinners such hostility against Himself, so that you may not grow weary or fainthearted."

Hebrews 12:1-3 (All scriptures taken from ESV version)

Soli Deo Gloria!!!!!!!
