NAME OF GOD: Elohenu Olam
Verse: For this God is our God for ever and ever; he will be our guide even to the end. - Psalm 48:14
Meaning: Our Everlasting God.
Elohenu Olam I confess that in my finite mind I have difficulties sometimes even grasping what my life may be like in five years, or ten. To comprehend a God who exists before time and will experience no end is beyond what I’m able to do. Forgive me for not fully appreciating your power, intellect and just who you are. The world is simply a pebble in your hand and yet I get so consumed by what I hear on the news or see at the workplace or experience in my relationships. A God who is Elohenu Olam is not easily overwhelmed because you have seen it all and will see it all. You know how it began and you know how each situation will end. You know that you will be there as the everlasting God. Forgive me for worrying rather than trusting in your wisdom and power.
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.
