my blog

For several weeks I have been thinking about starting a blog.  You may wonder why I need or want a blog, so I will try to summarize the point of this website.

The name of this blog comes from one of my favorite passages of Scripture, when Paul says in Philippians 1:20-21 – “…as it is my eager expectation and hope that I will not be at all ashamed, but that with full courage now as always Christ will be honored in my body, whether by life or by .  For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.”  My aim is to exhort you all whenever I update to live and die for the glory of Christ.  As God reveals His truth to me through His word and His work in my life, I hope I will be able to share that with you, to encourage you to deeper faith and joy in HIM!  (Colossians 3:16-17).  I hope that this page will glorify Christ as it encourages you in your faith and also encourages me as I document my convictions (it helps to see it in writing sometimes).

I also hope to update when a big event happens in my life that not everyone would necessarily know about.  But mainly, I pray that this blog will not be about me, but that even those details serve to point my readers to Christ.

Comments are welcome so I will know that people even read this! 🙂  I may occasionally utilize the comments section, but if you have a question or a comment to which you’d like me to respond, you will be better off sending me an email.  I will not promise a certain number of posts per week.  I will also tell you that if this blog distracts me or takes too much time to maintain, or if I feel that it is not serving its purpose, I will delete it immediately.

That said, I hope you will enjoy reading this blog as much as I will hopefully enjoy writing it!


About Joe Eaton

I praise God that my standing before Him has nothing to do with who I am or what I've done; it is found solely in the perfect life that Christ lived in my place, and His which atoned for my sin. "For our sake he made him to be sin who knew no sin, so that IN HIM we might become the righteousness of God"..."There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus."

    Welcome to the the world of blogging. It will be fun to read what God is teaching you. I have enjoyed blogging, but now need to figure out a way to combine my blogs into one sight. If you figure out a way for me to do that – let me know!

    Hey, Joe.

    I’m not much of a blog reader. However, I’ll try to poke my head in every once-in-a-while. I’ll be eager to catch a glimpse of what our great God is up to in your life and how that is impacting His wider body of believers.

    Peace, brother.
