A New Personal Blog Called "Effectual Grace" Launches Today
I really love this reformation theology website. For more than 5 years I have had the joy and privilege of being a contributor here and it continues to be a tremendous blessing to serve in this way. I can say that this experience has shaped and honed me in ways I did not imagine when I first started writing here. There's something about making a written public statement and then getting comments and feedback from fellow travelers on the internet highway. Some of the unexpected benefits have been that it has made me think through things a whole lot more and to clarify things better. I must admit that there has also been times when I realized that my initial thoughts on a subject may not in fact have been as convincing or water tight an argument (biblically) as I thought. The comments I have received have really made me think, and that is a very good thing. I also hope the process has also made me a better writer. If the readers of this site have been blessed, I have been far far more. God (and John Hendryx who oversees and administrates everything at the site here as well as monergism.com) willing, I will continue to post things here with the same zeal and freshness as the first day I put fingers to the keyboard. As I say, I really love this site.
So in addition to this writing privilege here, today I am launching my own personal blog site called "Effectual Grace" where I can share more about what is currently impacting me as I grow in my walk with the Lord. Its a place where I can delve deeply into the Scriptures on a variety of subjects as well as share things that made me laugh or smile. Its where I will do a lot of my thinking "out loud" so to speak. I invite you to take the journey with me. Hopefully we can grow together at the effectualgrace.com blog. - John Samson
