The Living Bread is an expression of my faith in God and my passion in writing. It is also my way of using my skills and time (and sometimes money) for God.
When I discovered blogging in 2010, the first thing that came into my mind is to use it to express my faith. I was excited because I finally found a way to share the word of God and write.
As a Christian, I have this urge to share the Good News and His grace. And I express myself better in writing than verbal. So I thought this is it.
The first blog I created was The Living Bread.
Through this blog and my humble knowledge with the word of God, my purpose for my readers is to introduce Jesus Christ and His salvation to people who haven’t known Him yet, inspire fellow Christians, answer people who are seeking, and correct wrong perceptions and beliefs about Christianity. There will also times that I will try to defend my faith against those who are disproving it.
I’m not a pastor nor a Bible graduate or student. I’m just a regular member of a small Bible Baptist church in the Philippines. I tried to enroll on a Bible college before but I wasn’t able to continue because of my schedule. But I’m still looking forward to graduate on a Bible college someday.
What I’m about to share to you is from my reading, studying and my observation about Christianity, religion and spirituality. So this means, this blog is not a source of an expert information. This is more about making you think and inspire.
I would also like to share my other passion which is music. As we all know, music plays a big part in our ministry and even in other religion.
I also provide reviews and recommendations about books, movies, music and other Christian stuff that are cool and useful.
I want you to participate
I encourage you to comment on my posts and participate on discussions. Because I know you can add more on what I had shared. I also welcome corrections because that makes me do better next time. Through a healthy discussion, you will help me make this blog more useful and informative.
And of course, an encouragement will inspire me knowing that somebody was being blessed by my effort.
While writing this article, God made me realized that before I offered Him my skills through this blog, He gave me these skills first.
Through this blog, I learned web development, writing, social media, internet and affiliate marketing and a lot more. I learned all this by researching on how to improve and promote this blog. I never realized then that I could make a living with these skills. And now, I have a job that I love.
And that my friend is how God works.
It is no different when we thought that we are giving enough for Him. But in truth, He gave these things to us first. He gave first. And He loved first.
Share the Gospel
Every Christian were commanded to share the Gospel. For me, the Gospel is like a treasure. But unlimited. When you found a treasure, you tend to keep it to yourself. You will tell no one about your treasure because you don’t want somebody to steal it, not even take part, and put your life in danger.
But Jesus’ salvation is for all of us and God’s grace is unlimited. God’s grace is like a treasure but the more you share, the more you will have.
The Gospel is also something like a huge discovery that would change your life forever. When you discover something big that affects all humanity, you will not be able to keep it to yourself.
Well I discovered something big. Something out of this world. Something huge, bigger than life. Something beautiful.
And I want to share it with you.
