NAME OF GOD: Elohim Chayim

Verse: This is how you will know that the living God (Elohim Chayim) is among you and that he will certainly drive out before you the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites and Jebusites. Joshua 3:10

Meaning: The Living God.

Prayer: Thanksgiving

Elohim Chayim thank you for being active and engaged in my everyday life. You are not a God who sits far off removed and distant having no say in what happens to me. Just as you drove out the Canaanites, Hittites, Hivites, Perizzites, Girgashites, Amorites and Jebusites from before the Israelites – you are alive and moving in the situations of my life as well. Thank you for your interest, care, concern and loving participation in me, through me and around me.

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.
