Spring is in the air. When you live in Northern Indiana, two consecutive days above fifty degrees is interpreted as springtime. Granted, we may have a blizzard next week, but that’s beside the point. Spring is upon us this week and the perfect time to begin again by reducing my website to a blank page and starting over. Not that I need a reason to do what I’ve done many times before, but Spring is a season of renewal.
In case you don’t know me, I’ll begin with a brief introduction. My name is Jeremy Sarber. I was saved by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone for the glory of God alone when I was a young twenty-something. I was ordained for pastoral ministry at the age of twenty-six. I served as pastor of two churches, helped plant a third, and now work full-time as a funeral home chaplain, though I still have frequent opportunities to preach and teach the Bible in churches.
That’s my abridged autobiography, to which I should add that I’m a confessional Reformed Baptist. Read the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith, and you’ll have a fairly extensive understanding of my fundamental beliefs. But as long as we agree the world is broken, God exists, and Jesus died to save sinners, you won’t have any trouble following along. Even if we don’t share these convictions, I invite you to continue reading, listening, and please stay in touch. God willing, I can open Scripture to you as you’ve never heard before and offer insights that’ll bless you, if not lead you into abundant life.
As for anything else I could tell you about myself, consider it forthcoming. You’ll find it woven throughout everything else I may publish.
This is On Life & Scripture, casual yet compelling talk about God, salvation, and ourselves. All glory be to Christ.
