The title of this post is a question that I have asked myself a thousand times in the past couple years. The truth is blogging has often been more of a burden than a joy. However, I have thought much about blogging and my motivation for it. I have shifted a couple times over the years, but never really stuck to a particular 'goal' in blogging. With that being said, this blog is either going to be more intentional (and I hope better) or it will be shut down.
So why should I blog? Let me give you three quick reasons for my continued blogging.
First I think "if" I blog it must be for the glory of God. All things are to be for His glory and this includes blogging. If I am motivated by anything else I have missed the point of this blog.
Second I want to blog for the good of the church. Specifically I want to blog for the good of Cypress Lake Baptist Church where God has so graciously allowed me to pastor. Secondarily I hope that my blogging will benefit the people of God throughout the world as well.
Third, I realize this is my blog. Therefore it will reflect me. It will reflect many of my own personal thoughts. It will reflect some of my personal life. I have purposefully not made this my primary focus, but it will come out nevertheless.
With these three thoughts being said, I would like to give this blog a name that better captures my desires. Any suggestions?
