Music M̶o̶n̶d̶a̶y̶ err Thursday “Free” – Steven Curtis Chapman

Got busy and didn’t post a song on Monday but woke up this morning and God placed this old Steven Curtis Chapman song on my heart so I decided not to wait until next Monday to post it.

If you’re feeling beaten down by life I pray this song will come to mean as much to you as it always has to me.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Easter Sunday 2018 “Don’t Avoid the Intersection”

 

The Cross of Christ is the intersection of necessary judgement and undeserved grace. Those who turn to God here find the path to pure love and eternal life.

Whatever you do don’t live life trying to avoid the intersection.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Feb. 25th, 2018 “What Chapter Are You?”

I readily admit I’m an unnecessarily long chapter in God’s book of grace. If you care to judge me for it I have just one question “what chapter are you?”

Talon’s Point of the Day – Jan. 2nd, 2018 “Walk Anew in 2018”

19 You will say then, “Branches were broken off that I might be grafted in.” 20 Well said. Because of unbelief they were broken off, and you stand by faith. Do not be haughty, but fear. 21 For if God did not spare the natural branches, He may not spare you either. 22 Therefore consider the goodness and severity of God: on those who fell, severity; but toward you, goodness, if you continue in His goodness. Otherwise you also will be cut off. 

Please notice the last sentence Otherwise you also will be cut off. ”  This debate over whether or not we can “lose” salvation is simply unnecessary. The word is clear. Don’t wonder if you can “lose it”. Wonder what results in being “cut off if you don’t “continue in His goodness. (an act of choice) Keep in mind this was written specifically to believers about consequences on believers for rebellion.

As we enter this new year let us walk anew in truth, regardless of whether it is comforting or not. If we “continue in His goodness” we will find comfort in these verses. If we do not, we will find it most uncomfortable, which is exactly what we’ll need to be drawn back to Him in repentance.

Talon’s Point of the Day – Dec. 6th, 2017 Playing God

It is not he who proclaims God’s precepts who is playing God, but he who denies God’s precepts in favor of his own.

Keep this in mind the next time you hear someone accuse you, or another, of “playing God.”

One more thing….God isn’t playing

Music Monday “Even If” – Mercy Me

“I know you’re able and I know you can, Save through the fire with your mighty hand, but even if you don’t, my hope is you alone.”

If you’ve faced this in your walk with God rejoice! “Even if” you must force yourself. He’s growing your faith and showing trust in you as he showed in Job.

“Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see.” – Hebrews 11:1

Music Monday errr Tuesday – “Speechless” – Steven Curtis

I’ve probably posted this before but if I have I must post it again. There’s a line in this song that moves me to tears even to this day. It asks the very simple yet profound question “what kind of love could this be, that would trade heaven’s throne for a cross?” After all these years of walking with Christ I have yet to come up with an answer that satisfies this question for me. Instead, as I view my own sin through the lens of time, I see a love for me that is greater and deeper than I can possibly comprehend on this side of eternity. Please take the time to ask this question for yourself. As with me, it will probably leave you “speechless”
