Zechariah 4:6 (English Standard Version)
6Then he said to me, “This is the word of the LORD to Zerubbabel: Not by might, nor by power, but by my Spirit, says the LORD of hosts.
God has definitely grown me over the past two years. I love seeking the Lord in his Word and in prayer. His leading by the power of the Holy Spirit has stretched me as I yearn to grow to be like my Jesus.
Writing is one of my passions and I always want to keep writing. Savor the Savior has allowed me to post what the Lord has placed on my heart and share some of the evangelism experiences.
I really want to do more writing in the area of biblical application, devotional, bible study, and as the Lord leads. One goal I would like to set in my lifetime is to write one Christian book. The Lord is showing me in prayer and devotional times to dig deeper in prayer and personal bible devotions. Deeper interaction with the Lord leads to his guidance in growing to be more like Him.
I am thankful for Calvary Chapel movement in their passion for being led and empowered by the Holy Spirit. They have also a deep passion for deep study of the Bible(book by book, chapter by chapter, verse by verse, precept upon precept).
I love sharing with others my Christian faith and relationship with Jesus. Starting a new blog will allow me to write in a different format than journal my evangelism interactions with people.(I will post these interactions on my facebook Tractman fan page .)
Some of the great past Christian preachers and writers have influenced me deeply to blog and eventually bring these ideas from the blogs into a book.(Maybe more than one if the Lord allows). Some of these past Christian writers/preachers are A.W. Tozer, Leonard Ravenhill, and David Wilkerson. These three have had a deep prayer life and time in God’s Word. By these two factors men become Spirit-led men in proclaiming repentance and faith in the Lord.
Thank you to all for your readership, comments, encouragements, and prayers.
A new blog will be formed shortly. I will post here on Savor the Savior, Facebook and email on the new blog.

Places where Gospel tracts and Gospel of Johns’ distributed: Knoxville, Atlanta, Memphis and Tulsa airports. Several restaurants in Joplin. Northpark Mall(Joplin, Missouri). Wal-Mart. Gas stations. Friends. Airplanes. A chain bookstore in Joplin. Many other places in the Joplin area.
(The McDonald’s over the Will Rogers Turnpike in Oklahoma.) This place is above and across the highway in Oklahoma. If you live or been thru this area before, you know what I mean.
My primary purpose of Christmas break was to visit my parents, family, and friends. Yet, I always look for an opportunity to get the Gospel in any place the Lord allows.
