My desire and motivation in creating this web site can be expressed by the following thoughts and verses.

What should we share as believers in the Lord Jesus Christ?  "We cannot but speak the things which we have seen and heard" (Acts 4:20)

In the 2nd book of Kings, four lepers were talking to each other and one said, "This is a day of good tidings and we hold our peace...now therefore come, that we may go and tell..."  (2 Kings 7:9

At the end of Matthew's gospel, the angel gave to the women at His tomb one of the greatest messages in all of recorded human history,

"He is not here: for He is risen, as He said. Come, see...go quickly, and tell" (Matthew 28:6,7).

The apostle Paul recorded in one of his divinely inspired letters, "(v.3) I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; (v.4) And that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the scriptures.  (v.19) If in this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. (v.20) But now is Christ risen...

(v.54) So when this corruptible shall have put on incorruption, and this mortal shall have put on immortality, then shall be brought to pass the saying that is written, 'Death is swallowed up in victory'. (v.55) O death, where is thy sting? O grave, where is thy victory? (v.57) But thanks be to God, which giveth us the victory through our Lord Jesus Christ" (1 Corinthians 15:3-4,19-20,54-55,57)

"Only fear the Lord, and serve Him in truth with all your heart; for consider how great things He hath done for you" (1 Samuel 12:24)

"(v.10) For a day in Thy courts is better than a thousand. I had rather be a doorkeeper in the house of my God, than to dwell in the tents of wickedness. (v.11) For the LORD God is a sun and shield: the LORD will give grace and glory: no good thing will He withhold from them that walk uprightly. (v.12) O LORD of hosts, blessed is the man that trusteth in Thee.  (Psalm 84:10-12)

 
(Some important verses in God's Word are in the book of Romans 1:3-4, 1:16, 3:23-24, 5:8, 6:23, 8:2, 10:17, 12:1-2, 13:11-12, 14:7-8, 15:5-6, 16:25)  The whole "Roman Road" unveils God's wonderful divine purpose for all of His Creation.

The aged Apostle Paul wrote to young Timothy, "that good thing which was committed unto thee...KEEP." (2 Timothy 1:14) Also, the prophet Joel could write the Word of the LORD, "Give ear, all ye inhabitants of the land. Hath this been in your days, or even in the days of your fathers? Tell ye your children of it, and let your children tell their children, and their children tell another generation." (Joel 1:2,3) Does this not speak to us in our day? "For whatsoever things were written aforetime were written for our learning, that we through patience and comfort of the scriptures might have hope." (Romans 15:4)

The idea of creating this web site is to make available, either directly, or by links, some useful material for the believer seeking to walk with God.  "A highway shall be there, and a Way, and it shall be called 'The Way of holiness'; the unclean shall not pass over it...wayfaring men, though fools, shall not err therein". 
(Isaiah 35:8) 
 
"One thing have I desired of the LORD, that will I seek after; that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to behold the beauty of the LORD...Teach me Thy way, O Lord, and lead me in a plain path."
(Psalm 27:4,11)
 
The Lord Jesus has said "I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life"
(John 14:6)
 
"Thus saith the LORD, 'Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls' "
(Jeremiah 6:16)
 
"What doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul"
(Deuteronomy 10:12)
 
The prophet Micah reminds us "He (God) hath shown thee...what is good, and what doth the LORD require of thee, but to do justly, and to love mercy, and to walk humbly with thy God?"
(Micah 6:8)
 
Finally, from Luke chapter 24:
 
(v.15) And it came to pass, that, while they communed together and reasoned, Jesus himself drew near, and went with them.
(v.26) "Ought not Christ to have suffered these things, and to enter into his glory?"
(v.27) And beginning at Moses and all the prophets, He expounded unto them in all the scriptures the things concerning Himself.
(v.28) And they drew nigh unto the village, whither they went: and he made as though he would have gone further.
(v.29) But they constrained him, saying, "Abide with us: for it is toward evening, and the day is far spent." And He went in to tarry with them.
(v.30) And it came to pass, as he sat at meat with them, he took bread, and blessed it, and brake, and gave to them.
(v.31) And their eyes were opened, and they knew him; and he vanished out of their sight.
(v.32) And they said one to another, "Did not our heart burn within us, while he talked with us by the way, and while he opened to us the scriptures?"
(v.33) And they rose up the same hour, and returned to Jerusalem, and found the eleven gathered together, and them that were with them,
(v.34) Saying, "The Lord is risen indeed, and hath appeared to Simon."
(v.35) And they told what things were done in the way, and how He was known of them in breaking of bread.
(v.45) Then opened He their understanding, that they might understand the scriptures.

For the LORD God is a sun and shield (Psalm 84:11)

From the rising of the sun unto the going down of the same the LORD's name is to be praised (Ps 113)
