And this is how the WordPress blog began in July of 2011 …

Believing IN Christ Jesus through ALL things

Just getting started here on wordpress.com.  For the last seven plus years I have been blogging on Xanga at http://bwebbjr.xanga.com/ .  I am excited about getting a fresh start with a new blog here.

So often when we think of the word ‘believe’ we tend to think of matters of the mind … a mental agreement about something or someone.  And certainly that is a valid definition.

Without faith it is impossible to please God … but the word ‘faith’ is a noun.  What is the action verb for faith?  From what I see in Scripture, quite frequently the action verbs used for faith are trusting, believe and believing.  More than simply a mental ascent, believing also means living your life based on your faith IN Christ Jesus.

About bwebbjr

A grandfather, father, husband, man, and a child of God who is following Christ Jesus and working out his salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work IN me, both to will and to work for His good pleasure (Philippians 2:12-13). I dodged my first bullet with cancer when a cancerous polyp was removed in a sigmoid colectomy surgery in August 2007. Four years later, in the midst of a second colectomy surgery we discovered I had Stage IV metastatic colon cancer. Rather than colectomy surgery I had colostomy surgery, which now means the colostomy bag is a part of my everyday life ... with the emphasis on life. God has given us a peace beyond understanding as my wife and I have traveled this journey. By the grace of God I am blessed to be a 6 plus year cancer survivor aka warrior. In writing, I am often wrestling with my own personal struggles and beliefs and in the midst God leads me to a lesson He wants me to learn ... or sometimes He simply touches me in the revelation of Himself. My hope is that the result you see here might touch your heart and glorify God. And let me be clear ... I am not the only one with something to say. Please join in the conversation sharing your faith, your cancer experiences, etc. I would love to hear from you. Bernie
