Why jprimus.com? (About this blog)

Welcome friends. I am glad you are here. I will briefly explain why I felt led to create this website. Around 2012 God challenged to find a way to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others. The problem is that all the people that I work with profess Jesus Christ as their Lord and Savior. That leaves only sales people and delivery people, many of which already have a relationship with the King of kings. Since I prefer staying at home most of the time, how can I tell people about the One who saves?

Before I disclose the obvious answer, I would like to give you a little background information. Back in 2015, a friend informed me of some vitamins and supplements that he and his wife had been taking which helped them out tremendously. As my family and I were previous owners of a health food store with two locations, I scrutinized the product and company a great deal. After my research and trial period was over (about six months) I discovered that both company and supplements were top-notch. You’re probably thinking, what do vitamins have to do with blogging? Well, an independent associate of the company gave me some great marketing tips on how to promote the supplements (to help others gain greater health while earning compensation) and one of the tips was to create a personal brand (marketing yourself to a group of people who share common goals) using social media, vlogging, and blogging. That was back in early 2017 and so here I am a year later finally launching this thing.

So am I disclosing parts of my life so that I can be used by God to win souls for Christ or to pay some extra bills? Yes. Ultimately, my goal is to encourage and equip believers in Christ to fulfill the Great Commission and their individual calling. This is summed up in a statement the Lord gave me in 2004, “help lead multitudes to freedom & teach them to lead other multitudes to freedom”. However, it would also be nice to use the skills I have obtained to help pay off student loans and such.

Friends, a wise man once told me to enjoy the journey. You and I are not at our final destinations yet. We have growing, teaching, helping, leading, and more growing to do. There is much to be done and if you can read this post, you are living and breathing, and you have a purpose to fulfill. Let us accept the journey we are on and do our very best. I look forward to assisting you on this journey we call life.

1 Therefore, since we also have such a large cloud of witnesses surrounding us, let us lay aside every hindrance and the sin that so easily ensnares us. Let us run with endurance the race that lies before us, 2 keeping our eyes on Jesus, the source and perfecter of our faith. For the joy that lay before him, he endured the cross, despising the shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God.

[Heb 12:1-2 CSB]
