NAME OF GOD: Elohim Kedoshim

Verse: Joshua said to the people, “You are not able to serve the Lord. He is a holy God; he is a jealous God. He will not forgive your rebellion and your sins. - Joshua 24:19

Meaning: Holy God.

Prayer: Confession

Elohim Kedoshim I confess that I know your desire is for me to be holy as you are holy and I seek that with my heart. But I also know that I have fallen short of that in the past, fall short of it in the present and will fall short of it in the future. In my finiteness I far too often sin – whether it be a sin of commission or a sin of omission, it still offends the beauty and purity of who you are. Forgive me for the worry, doubt, fear, anxiety, anger and even lack of love that is in my heart at times and cleanse me in your holiness.

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.
