Why is your blog called 3-D Lessons for Life?
The honest answer is that when I started blogging, I wanted to stay true to my teaching roots and title my blog “Lessons for Life,” but that was already taken. I added the “3-D” in front of it on a whim. My husband’s business is nicknamed 3-D, and it’s a phrase that we use often at Casa Dunbar.
When I moved my blog to wordpress.org, I had to decide if I wanted to change the name of this blog. I prayed about keeping 3-D Lessons for Life or tossing it for a new “revamped title.” As I thought about who I am and what this space on the web has become, the Lord impressed on me that the phrase “3-D” needed to stay.
God has called me to live a fully-dimensional faith. That’s the focus of my life and why I write here about life lessons. I want to pursue Christ with every fiber of my being.
Living a 3-D faith requires
- a commitment to growing intimacy with Christ
- a charge to affirm others and walk in community
- a call to reach out in love and live a life of service
This 3-fold focus was birthed in my heart through studying Paul’s prayer:
My response is to get down on my knees before the Father,
this magnificent Father who parcels out all heaven and earth.
I ask Him to strengthen you by His Spirit—
not a brute strength but a glorious inner strength—
that Christ will live in you as you open the door and invite him in.
And I ask Him that with both feet planted firmly on love,
you’ll be able to take in with all followers of Jesus
the extravagant dimensions of Christ’s love.
Reach out and experience the breadth!
Test its length! Plumb the depths! Rise to the heights!
Live full lives, full in the fullness of God.
Ephesians 3:14-19, MSG
