According to my resume, I was ordained on May 14, 2005. That’s the date although it’s hard to remember. I used to recall times and dates and places very easily but as I grow older…you know how it goes. It’s hard to believe that it’s coming up on ten years. Wayne Grudem’s ‘Systematic Theology’ was a foundational book for prepping me for that day and has helped shape my theology because it is so grounded in the Word of God. I still read it and teach from it. Other books have come along the way to shape and sharpen my beliefs but a video that was shown on my ordination day came to mind this morning. It’s a video to a song by Wes King simply called ‘I Believe.’ The clip’s a little grainy but it’s certainly worth the watch. The opening line goes ‘I believe…because He made me believe.’ That simple statement is the foundation of my theology and the foundation to my new life in Christ. Enjoy.
