Certainly not an exhaustive discussion on the topic but helpful steps in wisdom and understanding.

Brief intro into what this blog is about. When your car breaks do you take it to a salesperson or to a mechanic? And why a mechanic? Because the mechanic understands how the car works, how to diagnose it, and how to get fix it. I used to be a salesguy, I was a mile wide and an inch deep in my field. Salespeople are great for what they do but they are not mechanics.
Jesus is the life mechanic. He knows how life works so much so that He said, "I have come that you may have life" (John 10:10). He is under the hood of life. "For the mouth speaks out of that which fills the heart" (Matthew 12:34). And He is simple. "The kingdom of heaven is like a mustard seed" (Matthew 13:31).
I find life to be immensely difficult - both internally and externally. I like simple things. Jesus explains life in simple ways that work. That is the enormous goal of this blog - to be a vessel of the Holy Spirit in seeking to provide simple explanations for how life in Jesus works.
I constantly seek in the Lord to reduce my understanding of His ways to the easiest, digestible portions. I hope that this will be of benefit to you as you walk in your own journey...
Jim likes mechanics because, unlike sales guys, they know how things work. Jim seeks to provides simple explanations for how life in Jesus works.
A blog for CORE, Trexo, Trenchmen, and anyone else who is looking for simple explanations for life in Jesus.
