Chase Me Down
I always listen to the music my kids put before me, especially when it is ministering to them. This one, which captures the sentiments of Romans 7, is a rich blessing. Enjoy!
Small Book on God’s Attributes
I am enjoying this great little book on God’s attributes, a 4-part booklet that will refresh you as it summarizes the attributes of God into 4 categories that will help you make sense of how to relate to Him simply (amazing that He shares some of these capacities with us): https://www.amazon.com/Gods-Attributes-Lifes-Struggles-Gospel/dp/1596384158/
Trailer for an Upcoming Documentary
We have received the rights to show this movie to our church on the evening of July 23. Plan to join us for an important look at one church’s stand during COVID, which set a standard for understanding Christ, not Caesar, as head of the church. https://essentialchurchmovie.com/
Living for the Cause
Biblical Counselor Ernie Baker has written this great, short chapter on giving ourselves away for the cause of making disciples and those things that compete.
My Favorite Poem about the Gospel
O long and dark the stairs I trod
With trembling feet to find my God
Gaining a foothold bit by bit,
Then slipping back and losing it.
Never progressing; striving still
With weakening grasp and faltering will,
Bleeding to climb to God, while He
Serenely smiled, unnoting me.
Then came a certain time when I
Loosened my hold and fell thereby;
Down to the lowest step my fall,
As if I had not climbed at all.
Now when I lay despairing there,
Listen…a footfall on the stair,
On that same stair where I afraid,
Faltered and fell and lay dismayed.
And lo, when hope had ceased to be,
My God came down the stairs to me.
