Farewell for Now

To all those who have visited or subscribed to this weekly devotional study throughout the past 67-weeks, I say thank you!  I have certainly enjoyed sharing God’s word through this medium known as the blogosphere.  I have also enjoyed reading the added commentaries and insights from fellow believers and answering questions from those who are yet seeking the way, the truth, and the life.
Why do I say farewell…I will be redirecting my attention to writing a full-length Christian book.  As many of you know all too well, it takes time and research to exposit the depth of scripture and even more time to transition one’s thoughts to paper as led by the Holy Spirit.  Therefore, time being the keyword I must discontinue publishing my weekly devotions in order to dedicate that time to writing the book.
I am quite sure each of you understands that two priorities cannot occupy the same space and time – something has to give way.  One might even say why not simply base your weekly devotions on the current research for your book?  Well, and I say this with a humbled chuckle, why then would anyone want to get my book if it is already available online?  Therefore, for now I leave you, requesting your prayers for the Holy Spirit’s guidance in this endeavor.  
I like to think that the overarching message I have instilled in each of my writings is the dire need for every believer to go out and share the good news of Jesus Christ with the world.  This is our calling, our mission, our responsibility - that we would give our life over to Him who gave His life up for us in that He would continue to live through us and reach the world.  I encourage you to individually dig deep in God’s word and share what you have uncovered with others.
Jesus said, “Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to all creation.  (Mark 16:15-16/KJV)
The question here dear brother or sister is - will you go?

Have a blessed week and stay tuned in for updates on my future writings!
