In the beginning Pastor Josh created a new blog. The blog was formless and void
and white space filled the screen. And the imagination of Pastor Josh was pondering
what might be.
And Pastor Josh said, “Let there be logoi, that is words, that proclaim
ὁ λόγος σὰρξ ἐγένετο, the Word made flesh, Christ Jesus.” He is the Word and Reason
of God, the only Son of the Father, by whom all things were made and are held
together. He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life, the only way to the Father. He gave
His life for the world, as the Lamb of God who takes away sin of the world. He took
His life up again, as the Resurrection and the Life. He gives peace and breathes the
Holy Spirit. He graciously calls sinners to be baptized, to be born of water and the
Spirit, and so enter into His gracious reign where there is forgiveness of sins, life,
and eternal salvation. He gives His name to be trusted in and called upon in prayer.
He promises to raise you from the dead on the last day. And Pastor Josh saw that
these words proclaiming Christ were kaloi logoi, that is good/noble/beautiful, for
they gave witness to the world’s Creator and Redeemer.
Then Pastor Josh said, “This blog shall be a place to proclaim these good words
concerning Jesus and the life that we have in Him. It shall be a place where we may
examine our culture and our lives in light the death and resurrection of Christ Jesus
and all of God’s Word, a place where questions may be addressed and answered, and
a place where we even may have some fun.”
So Pastor Josh invited the readers of his blog to submit questions and topics
that they would like Pastor Josh to address in light of Christ Jesus and all of Holy
Scripture. Pastor Josh promises to make a distinction in his blogging between the
good words of Holy Scripture and his own pious opinions on matters that Holy
Scripture does not address. Pastor Josh prays that this new blogging adventure will
be a beneficial and fun experience for his readers and himself.
And Pastor Josh looked at the new blog that he created, laughed, and said, “Thanks
be to God, I think it may actually be a good start!” Thus the first blog posting for
Kaloi Logoi: Good Words was finished and Pastor Josh rested from his labors while
enjoying the tasty fruits of another of his creations.
