Happy Birthday, Mackenzie!

Today is my oldest daughter's birthday.  As I often say on her birthday, she was born a little early and I am thankful for how God walked with us and provided for us during her two weeks in the NICU.  Here is a picture then and now. 


Happy 15th Birthday, Mackenzie!

Check back next week for post about what I learned through Mackenzie's birth.

What does it mean to be "in Christ?"

For 2017, the phrase I am focusing on is "in Christ."  Each week, I will post 1 verse that includes the phrase "in Christ". I look forward to growing in understanding of what it means to be "in Christ."
24 My love be with you all in Christ Jesus. Amen. (1 Corinthians 16:24)

Tweets and more tweets

Here are some of my favorite tweets from the last few weeks.  This is one of the blessings of social media where we can hear the gospel from people all over the world. If you like the tweet, go and follow the person on Twitter. 
The faith that saves you is the faith that sustains you because it is in the same object. @Byronyawn
Cheer up-you're a lot worse than you think you are & cheer up-God's Grace is a lot bigger than you think it is-Jack Miller via @DRStevewBrown
How do our passions for God grow? Not by being told that they're supposed to grow, but by marveling at what God has done for us. @jdgreear
All we needed when we first came to Jesus was his grace & Grace is all we need to grow in Christ. Grace liberates us. @JudWilhite
If, when we speak the word gospel, we mean anything other than or less than the person and work of Jesus, we need an adjustment. @ScottyWardSmith
What kind of reputation should a church have? One where people sneak in "to spy out our freedom we have in Christ Jesus," (Gal 2:4). @birdchadlouis

Gospel Playlist

This is a new feature replacing "Playing on the Radio", but will be similar because it will include music.  I will be sharing songs from my "Gospel Playlist" on my phone.

The gospel is good news.  It reminds us what Christ has DONE for us.  As I share, I hope it will be an encouragement to you today. 

Song today is: At the Cross by Chris Tomlin
