Welcome to my blog. My name is Nahomi.
I am Philip’s wife and mother of three children. I work outside the home as well, writing user manuals and online Help for software applications.
Studying the Bible is our number 1 passion.
Today we worship with a Reformed Baptist Church in Auckland. But over the years, we have been a part of many denominations.
We had a yearning to be part of a church where the Bible was preached faithfully. We were not uncommitted nomads but determined settlers. But for reasons beyond our control (usually a job transfer), we have had to pack our bags and move. Now looking back, we cannot find even one stop as having been useless. Everywhere we went, we immersed ourselves in the study of the word of God from the perspective of the church in which we found ourselves.
Being introduced to Reformed theology is one of the best things that has happened to us. It has allowed the word to throw light into many a dark crevice in our understanding. But because of our background, I suspect that we are able to delight in it more than some who have grown up in its shade. We are also able to enjoy and understand God’s people from non-reformed circles as well.
We do not expect to find a church under the sun that is perfect in theology and practice in every way. It is true that in choosing a local church, one must exercise utmost care with much prayer, looking for a church where the Spirit of God is at work, where the teaching is sound. As far as our experience goes, every such church has blind spots too. God knows, we ourselves are far from perfect in our understanding.
We yearn for the day when all of God’s people will stand together, without these labels, before the Lamb who purchased us at Calvary.
He (Jesus). . . says, “Surely I am coming quickly.”
Amen. Even so, come, Lord Jesus!
The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you all. Amen.
