Verse: This is the account of the heavens and the earth when they were created, in the day that the Lord (Jehovah) God made earth and heaven. - Genesis 2:4
Meaning: Lord, master and relational God
Jehovah thank you that you desire to be close to me. Thank you that you are not just a God who is high and lifted up but you are also a God who communes with the lowly and with those who are not of a high stature. Thank you for the goodness and depth of your heart which pours out love time and again in my life, for the grace of your patience which continues to show love even in the face of my many dismissals of you. I often walk in the midst of the beauty of your creation without giving you the praise and credit that is due you so please accept my heart of gratitude right now for all that you have made, and for your desire to know me fully and have me know you as well.
Rather than viewing the cross as an historical event that will take us to heaven, we ought to view it as a current event containing everything we need to bring heaven to bear on earth.
In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans carefully and pastorally applies the cross of Christ to life today. In three parts, he considers:
• What makes Christ unique; how Old Testament prophecy and typology looked ahead to Him; and how His humiliation, death and resurrection sets Him apart as Lord
• What was accomplished on the cross for us, how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives, and how it's a source of authority for us
• What is the power of the cross and the stability it provides, deliverance it offers, the power of its ongoing remembrance, and more
The cross is the hinge of history. How much more, then, is it the hinge of your life? It gained more for you than you may realize; do not make the grave error of overlooking it. As a thank you for your gift of any amount, we’ll get this brand new book, The Power of the Cross, out to you right away.
