About Me

My name is Joseph Olivares and I’m 18. I’m from Santa Maria, California, born and raised, and just graduated from Pioneer Valley High School, but I’m actually going to be leaving and going all the way to Grand Rapids, Michigan, to attend Calvin College this Fall!

I love Jesus very much; I think it’s so amazing that although I deserve God’s wrath because of my sin, He has credited me with the perfect life of Jesus and likewise credited Jesus with my sinful, crappy life, so that the wrath that I deserved was poured out on Jesus at the Cross. Although I have some confusion about who I am and where I’m going, I’m convinced that because my God is so amazing, I am simply called to be nothing more than a match, which people will tend to pay no attention to, giving their attention instead to the flame which shines forth from the match, just as my life is simply to be a means of “shining” Jesus so that other people can also see how awesome He is. (Hence the blog name “Just a Match.”)
