The other day I mentioned that I would be reading Piper’s book “50 Reasons why Jesus Came to Die” between Easter and Pentecost. You can get the scoop here.
To Cancel the Legal Demands of the Law Against Us
As crazy as it sounds I used to think that God would be pleased with my deeds. I was teaching and preaching the right thing, but living as though I could obtain God’s favor by my actions. I shared this part of my story earlier on the blog. You can catch it here. I am so thankful that God didn’t see fit to let me try and work my way to him only to be frustrated and without him in the end. Sorry to include two songs in a row, but as reminder of where I have come from and how I have been set free I sing, “Before the Throne of God Above” just about every day in my private worship. It was especially sweet today.
Shane and Shane: Before The Throne (Pages Album Version) has an MP3 from their Pages Album with the song on it. I don’t have it on my iphone. I just memorized it from our college group several years back and it has carried me through.
