NAME OF GOD: El Emunah

Verse: Know therefore that the Lord your God is God; he is the faithful God (El Emunah), keeping his covenant of love to a thousand generations of those who love him and keep his commandments. - Deuteronomy 7:9

Meaning: The Faithful God.

Prayer: Adoration

El Emunah your faithfulness convinces me that nothing can ever separate me from your love. Death nor life, fear nor worry – not even the powers of hell can separate me from you because you are faithful. I honor and adore you for the faithfulness that you show me even when I am unfaithful to you. I praise you for keeping your covenant of love not only to me, but also to a thousand generations of those who love you and seek you with all of their hearts, minds and souls. I praise El Emunah for the faithfulness that you revealed in writing and recording your Word for my instruction so that through endurance and the encouragement of your Scripture, I might have hope.

The Power of the Cross: Putting it to Work in Your Life

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.
