More than two years ago I began posting twice a week on A Disciple’s Notebook. Doing a blog had never been my desire or dream. One day while mowing my yard and considering some deep concerns I have about what I call “cultural Christianity,” the thought came strongly—and with surprise—“Do a website to encourage believers.” It is not an exaggeration to say that I was not even in kindergarten in my understanding about this sort of thing. I had no idea how to begin or what to do. The Lord would have to undertake to guide and equip me if this was His will. Was it He who impressed my heart that late summer day? I prayed, pondered, and waited until I was as sure as I could be that I was indeed to begin this venture into a totally new arena. Certain elements must come together if I was to proceed, and obviously they did by the Lord’s kindness and provision. One special gift was a talented brother in Christ who agreed to build the site for me. I decided what should go on the site and he put it together. Of course, this was after getting permission from the artists for the painting and music used. June 17, 2008 was my first posting.
Response by emails has been encouraging. I chose not to record how many hits come or where the hits originate. Any money from books or devotional videos goes into a ministry fund to help with ongoing ministry projects.
My desire is to honor the incomparable Lord Jesus by freely sharing His wonderful truth of love and grace as simply, purely, lovingly, and accurately as possible.
I will continue posting as long as I am able and pray readers will be deeply stirred and encouraged in sincere (simple) and pure devotion to Christ. In this day of many distractions we must learn to have a single eye for Jesus. In these times of hell’s assault, each one of us needs encouragement to stay faithful and true to Him who loves us with all that He is and who gave Himself for us. If these postings encourage you to love Jesus Christ more profoundly, enjoy Him more intimately, and follow Him more faithfully, then He will be glorified and I will be satisfied. It is a work of faith and a labor of love.
His bondservant, in the peace and joy of Christ’s love,
Jerry R. White, Jr.
