Less Me // More Him

photo 2 (3)

There in the ground His body lay,
Light of the world by darkness slain;
Then bursting forth in glorious day,
Up from the grave He rose again!
And as He stands in victory,
Sin’s curse has lost its grip on me;
For I am His and He is mine—
Bought with the precious blood of Christ.

“In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

 

As we look forward to celebrating this glorious moment this Sunday on Easter, what does it look for sin’s curse to loose it’s grip on you and your life?

Less Guilt // More Jesus

photo 3 (1)

No guilt in life, no fear in death—
This is the pow’r of Christ in me;
From life’s first cry to final breath,
Jesus commands my destiny.
No pow’r of hell, no scheme of man,
Can ever pluck me from His hand;
Till He returns or calls me home—
Here in the pow’r of Christ I’ll stand.

“In Christ Alone”

What does it mean to stand in the power of Christ?

God’s Story // Your Story

This Holy Week, we would encourage you to spend time listening to God.  You could enter into this time of reflection with a daily scripture reading:

Stones // How Great

Luke 19:37-40 shares a bit of the “Palm Sunday” message by saying,

As he rode along, the crowds spread out their garments on the road ahead of him.37 When he reached the place where the road started down the Mount of Olives, all of his followers began to shout and sing as they walked along, praising God for all the wonderful miracles they had seen.

38 “Blessings on the King who comes in the name of the Lord!
    Peace in heaven, and glory in highest heaven!”[c]

39 But some of the Pharisees among the crowd said, “Teacher, rebuke your followers for saying things like that!”

40 He replied, “If they kept quiet, the stones along the road would burst into cheers!”

What would it look like if the STONES cried out in praise for Jesus?

Louie Giglio makes a mashup of natural sounds…this video is about 14 minutes, but if you want to skip ahead to the 9 minute mark, it’s pretty incredible. If you just want 2 minutes, skip ahead to to the 12 minute mark (the noises in the background are the sounds of stars and whales). Nature is worshipping our Creator! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7zWKm-LZWm4

Less Fear // More Love // Part 2

Processed with VSCOcam with f3 preset

 

“In Christ alone, Who took on flesh,
Fullness of God in helpless babe!
This gift of love and righteousness,
Scorned by the ones He came to save.
Till on that cross as Jesus died,
The wrath of God was satisfied;
For ev’ry sin on Him was laid—
Here in the death of Christ I live.”

“In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

Jesus took on all the sins of everyone who has ever lived, so that we may be freed from death. Is that truth a reality in your life?

Less Fear // More Love

Processed with VSCOcam with f2 preset

In Christ alone my hope is found;
He is my light, my strength, my song;
This cornerstone, this solid ground,
Firm through the fiercest drought and storm.
What heights of love, what depths of peace,
When fears are stilled, when strivings cease!
My comforter, my all in all—
Here in the love of Christ I stand.

“In Christ Alone” by Keith Getty & Stuart Townend

What does it mean that God is our comforter?
