Wikipedia says the word agape (pronounced “uh-gha-pay”) was used by early Christians to refer to the “self-sacrificing love of God for humanity, which they were committed to reciprocating and practicing towards God and among one another.” In modern times, it is often used to simply convey Godly love, whether it’s love for God, or Christian love for our fellow man.
I just thought it would be a neat domain name that would hopefully get the point across easily.
So what’s the site about?
Simply put, it’s my humble attempt to honor God using the gifts He’s given me. I’ve made my living on the web since 1998, and any success I’ve had has been to His glory and as a result of His blessing- not anything I’ve done. And since February of 2006, I’ve gotten back into the hobby of modeling, which has been not only a great source of relaxation for me, but has also helped me get to know quite a few people who I really believe God has had a purpose in me knowing.
I realized that through this hobby, and through the knowledge of the web He has blessed me with, I could share my love of the Lord and my love of modeling with people- Christians or not.
A little about me
This site is to God’s glory, not mine. For those curious, however, I am Jon Bius. Currently I am rejoicing in the Lord’s provision, working as a web developer and project manager for Biz Tools One in Fayetteville, NC. From March 1998 until March 25th, 2009, I worked in various roles for The Fayetteville Observer in Fayetteville, NC, my final role for nearly 4 years being Online General Manager. Prior to that, I was stationed at nearby Fort Bragg, where I was a Psychological Operation specialist with the 4th PSYOP Group. I moved here from Tallahassee, FL. I am married and have two college-age children. We attend Village Baptist Church. My favorite Bible verse is Jeremiah 29:11:
“For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.”
I urge you to seek God’s blessing in your life, because He has a special place for you in His Kingdom. In fact, He loves you so much that he sent His Son Jesus to die on the cross for your sins.
