"God is pursuing with omnipotent passion a worldwide purpose of gathering joyful worshipers for Himself from every tribe and tongue and people and nation…Therefore let us bring our affections into line with His, and, for the sake of His name, let us renounce the quest for worldly comforts and join His global purpose."
    -- John Piper

    What good is it, my brothers, if a man claims to have faith but has no deeds? Can such faith save him? Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and daily food. If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well; keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about his physical needs, what good is it?

    In the same way, faith by itself, if it is not accompanied by action, is dead.

The 500 Mark

Sometime over night “Along the Way” exceeded 500 hits.  While this is a totally insignificant milestone for most of you, I am amazed.  I never started out writing anything with the belief that people would actually read it.  Yet, as I wrote, you read, and commented, and read some more.  So, to the few of you who drop by now and then, Thank you. 

It’s interesting that many of you have come by to understand “The Roman’s Road.”  I’m not sure if you looked for it as a Christ follower so that you could be armed to share the Gospel.  I don’t know if you were “seeking” God and someone told you to look at “The Roman’s Road”  What ever the case, I am glad you could find something here. 

I know that this whole tolerance discussion has cheesed a few of you off along the way, but I hope that from our discussion you continue to think about where God has you, and where He wants you to be.  In all of it, I hope that you continue to pursue obedience and holiness. 

I have no idea what’s next.  Maybe five or six posts on the life of Job?   Maybe not!   I’m really concerned about the emerging church, so I imagine you will read more from me on that topic in the coming weeks. 

I do know that I am going to start a “family blog” one of these days.  Probably after vacation the end of the month.  This is the perfect place to get the kids involved and keep the extended family and friends informed on what’s going on.  There will be pictures and some observations about parenting.

Again, thanks to all of you.  And for those of you who simply stop by to read, make a comment or two next time.  I would love to hear from you.  If you don’t have a blog of your own, think about starting one.  It is an amazing experience.  Finally, be sure to visit some of the other blogs and links on the left side of this page.  I guarantee you will find them to be insightful and entertaining.

God Bless.
