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!"

The Authority of the Risen Christ

I wish that I could say something or paint some picture that would cause you to realize that if all the authority of all the armies and all the governments of the world were put in a balance, and on the other side were put the authority of the risen Christ, they would go up like air. All authority on earth and in heaven has been given to Him - all of it. The risen Christ has the authority and the right to tell every man and woman in this room what to do, what to say, and what to feel, and what to think every second of your life, no objections! Absolute authority, for He is God! - and we dare not quibble with Him.

- John Piper, Worship the Risen Christ
