Very Inspiring Blogger Award

Why is this still here? I have to find 15 deserving bloggers to nominate, and I just chose my last nominee.  — Updated 5 Sep 2012.

My Blog and Biltrix honored me with this award. Unfortunately, instead of doing this post right away after my nomination by My Blog, I procrastinated. Forgetting the nature of memes, I waited too long. Therefore, Biltrix also provided a nomination.

As it is, I am flattered to have received these nominations. Both My Blog and Biltrix are excellent, top-tier Christian blogs. If you have not visited these blogs you should.

Now for the RULES to follow when nominated for the Very Inspiring Blogger Award:

1. Display the award logo on your blog. Done

2. Link back to the person who nominated you. Done

3. State seven things about yourself. – As my About page states: This blog is not about me. So when I am asked to talk about myself, I find it awkward and somewhat contrary to the purpose of the blog. Therefore, I will speak to the purpose of the blog. Done (see below).

  • I Love my God. That is something that I realized less than a decade ago. It is better to become a Christian late than never to become one. Nonetheless, when I look back, there are so many thing I could have done I did not do and so many things I should not have done. So there is more I must ask my God to forgive.
  • I have two daughters. As I understand and have seen, when some have their first child, the realization of that responsibility draws them to God. I was a bit to cold for that. Instead, my lady raised my children as Christians, and it was the example of my children that led me to my God.
  • I am a grandfather. In a sense, a grandchild is a second chance. With the birth of that child, even the thickest head begins to understand that with our children we leave a legacy. What kind of world will we leave behind for our children? Will we leave a Christian nation that operates as a constitutional republic or a godless nation run by tyrannical regime?
  • I consider religion inseparable from politics. What we believe about God determines what we believe about the purpose of government.  If we believe in a God who loves each of us and in a God who gives each of us our rights, then and only then will we respect the rights of others.
  • I believe we can do nothing on our own worthy of boasting. As great as our accomplishments might seem, compared to our flaws and to what we must do, they amount to nothing. We cannot justify our existence. We cannot surmount death. We can only put our faith in The One who is perfect.

    Romans 5:1-5 Good News Translation (GNT)

    1 Now that we have been put right with God through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ.2 He has brought us by faith into this experience of God’s grace, in which we now live. And so we boast of the hope we have of sharing God’s glory!3 We also boast of our troubles, because we know that trouble produces endurance,4 endurance brings God’s approval, and his approval creates hope.5 This hope does not disappoint us, for God has poured out his love into our hearts by means of the Holy Spirit, who is God’s gift to us.

  • I believe man is innately evil, that we cannot through our own efforts perfect ourselves. If we must depend upon our own efforts, then we have no reason for hope. Our need for God is real. Only if there is a Creator who loves us do we have cause for hope.

    Psalm 39:7 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    And now, Lord, what do I wait for and expect? My hope and expectation are in You.

  • I believe that our salvation depends upon obeying God’s commandment to love Him and each other.

    Luke 10:27 Amplified Bible (AMP)

    And he replied, You must love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.

4. Nominate 15 other bloggers for this award and link to them. TBD

5. Notify those bloggers of the nomination and the award’s requirements.  Fifteen down and no longer counting.
