About Our Blog
Scripture teaches that words possess tremendous force like no other medium: God brings life to the universe through the command of a word (Gen 1), and He brings life to our souls through the mediation of His Word in Scripture (John 6:60-65). The words we speak to others can either build up or to burn down, to convict or to condemn, to create or to destroy (Jas 3:1-12).
Sadly, there has been a noticeable shortage of eloquent Christian writers today, which is partially attributed to our underestimation of the significance that words can have in moving hearts and reaching minds. Much work is needed to cultivate these untapped gifts, that many Christians in our church community possess, so that nurturing the church can reach to to far greater dimensions and that God gets the glory.
Words carry boundless potential, which is why over the course of this year, I haven’t been more convinced than ever that starting a blog would be an awesome ministry initiative that can bless many Christians through the harnessed power of words. We can use our words to encourage and to edify our readers; to share what God has done in our lives and to teach what God has taught us in His Word!
Consequently, this blog is made and managed by a group of volunteers who are part of Allelous Community Group in an attempt to contribute to the work of using written words to encourage and edify Christian disciples. The team is led by John Le who serves as a contributor and editor of the blog, and he is supported by a team of authors who post articles, book reviews, bible reflections and more.
