Christian Life Daily (CLD) provides a platform to report on all of the amazing things God is doing that don’t seem to receive serious coverage from the mainstream media.
In addition to reporting on what God is doing, CLD seeks to provide practical resources that would be of value to everyday Christians.
These resources include reviews of books, movies, music, Bible studies, etc. as well as practical advice articles on living the Christian Life.
The scripture that inspires the work at Christian Life Daily is 2 Corinthians 2:14-17:
“But thanks be to God, who in Christ always leads us in triumphal procession, and through us spreads the fragrance of the knowledge of Him everywhere. For to God we are a sweet perfume of Christ among those who are being saved and among those who are perishing, to one a fragrance from death to death, to the other a fragrance from life to life. Who is sufficient for these things? For we are not, like so many, trading in God’s word merely for profit, but as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God we speak in Christ.”
The metaphor of the triumphal procession is a powerful image.
In ancient times, a victorious army would return home from war to a massive parade of celebration through the streets of the city. They would return home with great stories of their journey, of their trials and tribulations, and of the ultimate victory that was achieved. And there would be cheers and songs of joy and praise for the victory.
The goal of Christian Life Daily is to tell those stories and serve as the cheers and songs of joy and praise for the victories God is achieving all over the world. Our prayer is that this website will be a sweet perfume to spread the knowledge of Him.
But a triumphal procession is now truly a celebration without the crowds of people in attendance joining in the cheers and songs of joy and praise. We invite you, our audience, to join us in this mission of celebration by sharing the good news of what God is doing with your friends, family, church, and community, whether in person or on social media (link to join the Triumphal Procession page).
The final verse reminds the writers and staff here at CLD that while we are being paid for our work — and building (hopefully) a profitable website — our primary motivation is to serve “as men of sincerity, as commissioned by God, in the sight of God.”
