My post of July 13, 2009, entitled “How to Become a Christian” was the 1,000th post on Cerulean Sanctum. I’ve been blogging under that title since September 2003, though I had a previous blog for a few years before CS (The Boiled Frog Blog) that focused on cultural meltdowns. I find it amazing that I have been blogging in one form or another since 2000.
I saved yesterday’s post for the 1,000th because I felt the Lord telling me for weeks that it was needed. I have not seen many good evangelistic presentations in the Godblogosphere, a truly tragic lack. Plus my time away allowed me to consider the wording of a Christ-glorifying apologetic.
While I don’t normally request links, I would like to ask a favor. If you have a blog and find “How to Become a Christian” to be a worthy presentation of the Gospel, would you please link to it? I feel a pressing need to see more people come to Christ. And though I would prefer that a presentation of the Gospel happens in person, if it cannot, my prayer would be that this post would help point others in the direction of the Kingdom of God.
The best way to link to the post in a way that grabs Google’s attention is to embed the link in a proper context, such as this:
“If you are searching for truth, for real love, or for freedom from the past, here is a link that details how to become a Christian.”
By linking as I did on that keyphrase, it will help those who are using search engines to find how to become a Christian.
The Latest Update
As many of you know, I stepped away from Cerulean Sanctum for a couple weeks while recovering from surgery. The surgery itself went about as smoothly as could be imagined, but the recovery has not been without its pains. I was told I would not be back to normal for yet another month. Today, I have my follow-up visit with the surgeon. My prayer is that he fixed the problems and that my recovery is progressing as planned.
This was a very common surgery. No life threatening condition, just an annoying one that was only going to become more problematic as time went on. My surprise was that I needed it in two spots, not just one, so the recovery will be longer than I anticipated.
As a freelancer, any time I take off means no income, so getting back to work has been a pressing need. I started back yesterday, but I have much catching up to do. Things may be a bit sparse here over the next month as I attempt to get back on top of work responsibilities, even as I heal.
Thank you for all your prayers of support and for healing. Cerulean Sanctum has a great band of regular readers, and I appreciate every one of you. As long as you keep reading, I’ll keep writing!
