Psalm 16:5

The LORD is the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup: thou maintainest my lot.

God's Warth is Coming... Are You Ready?

You had better listen to the words of Jesus, “Not everyone who says to me Lord, Lord, shall enter, but he that does the will of my father in heaven.” If ye by the Spirit do mortify the deeds of the flesh, ye shall live. If you live after the flesh, you’ll die! The cross does not give us a minor shift or two with regard to a few of our ethical and religious values. The cross radically disrupts the very center and citadel of your life from self to Christ. And if the cross has not done that, YOU’RE NOT A CHRISTIAN! My Friend face it, young rogue, you’re not a Christian until the cross has radically disrupted the very center and citadel of your life! And brought you from a life of commitment to serve self…What are the focal points of the reign of your self? If you’ve gone to the cross in union with Christ, it’s been shattered!"

Revealing the Creator's Handywork

The moon tonight.

"The creation of the material world, including our bodies with all five senses, was God's idea. He did not do it mainly as a temptation to idolatry, but mainly as a display of his glory. 'The heavens declare the glory of God" (Ps. 19:1). That is the purpose of a million species of animals and plants, and a million galaxies."

- John Piper, God is the Gospel, pg. 138
