NAME OF GOD: Elohe Chaseddi (Psalms 59:10)
Verse: My God in His lovingkindness will meet me; God will let me look triumphantly upon my foes. - Psalm 59:10
Meaning: The God of My Mercy.
Elohe Chaseddi, you know how I am formed. You remember that I am dust. In your lovingkindness, you show mercy. From everlasting to everlasting, your love is with those who fear you, and your righteousness with their children’s children – with those who keep your covenant. Elohe Chaseddi, you showed favor to your people and you have restored the many from captivity. You have forgiven my iniquity and covered all of my sin. In your mercy, you have withdrawn your fury and turned away from your burning anger. Surely your salvation is near to those who fear you that your glory may dwell in our hearts and in our land. Your lovingkindness and truth have met together. Righteousness and peace have kissed each other, and for that I praise your name.
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.
