My aim in this blog is to focus on God and his life transforming gospel of grace (Titus 2:11-14). Through the gospel or ‘great news’ about Jesus I have come to realise that life is about something far greater than me. The gospel helps me to recognise how much of my life has been self-centred: aiming for my comfort, having selfish motives even for things that seem good. The gospel shows me I am more ungrateful, self-centred and rebellious towards God than I ever realised. Yet at the same time the gospel shows me in Jesus I am loved, forgiven and accepted by God. Through turning and trusting in this gospel of Jesus, even the insignificant moments of my ordinary life are given new meaning, as I learn to live not for myself, but for the God who made me, died for me and rose again. I enjoy spending time with my family, reading, cycling, backyard soccer and cricket and watching the Parramatta Eels win grand finals (though it’s been awhile since this happened!) I also enjoy serving as a pastor at Maitland Evangelical Church . Thanks for reading my blog. Feel free to leave a comment or ask a question on any of the posts if you’d like to.
