About Verse for Today

This blog is written by me, Randy Klynsma.  I’m the pastor of Northland Reformed Church in the Northland area of Kansas City, MO (northlandreformd.org).    As a rule, I try to keep my Verse for Today posts  under 300 words.

I am convinced that God has intended his Word to be read and meditated upon.  The words of Scripture are described in II Timothy 3:16,17

“All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness,  that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.

I believe what it says… that all scripture is profitable… when it is read and known and lived.

How did I get started with this blog?  Well, first off, over the last year or two I have been blessed by the BibleGateway.com’s ministry of sending out a Verse of the Day.   I’ve shared this with the congregation I pastor and encouraged them to also sign up, but I didn’t sense it was gaining much traction.

Then I thought, well, as I have the email address of everyone in the congregation, how hard would it be for me to forward these verses to them?   So I started simply cutting and pasting them and emailing them to our members.  A young lady in our congregation asked if I could include a few comments to explain the meaning of the verses I send.  So I did.  Later, someone said, you know instead of just sending these to us, you should also place them on a blog.  So here we are.

Presently, I send my post to email lists of the members of our congregation and friends of Northland Reformed.  I also post them as blogs here at WordPress and at Blogspot ( http://realreligion4you.blogspot.com/ ).  When I post them on the blogs they get auto-posted on Facebook and Twitter.

Any reader of these posts are welcome to forward, share or use them.

Best Regards,

Randy Klynsma
