So, I have this fear of writing “Sermon Warp-Up” and two weeks ago, I made “March” into “Mach” instead. Oops.

Morning Extended Look:

Chapter 1: March 23: Over the Sea!

1.1. Scripture intro

Deuteronomy 30:11-20

These chapters contain Moses' final words. We should consider these as we move forward into life.

Highway? Use the concept of a major sign telling you where to take an exit and then reminder signs on the path--mileage and motion.

1.2. Intro

Life and death, blessing and cursing--

For the people of Israel, it was about the Land and the Promise. It was about deliverance from Egyptians and the presence of God in their midst

1.3. Once you know, you must act

Go with a parents see all type of story here.

Heaven and Earth--there is no place away from witnesses.

1.4. Serving the Lord

The first line of covenant living is serving God, and only God, and no other gods.

1.5. Serving Others

The second line of covenant life is service to others.

1.6. Live Righteously

The third aspect of covenant life is just this: live righteously in obedience to God.

Look at the idea of the comprehensive law, that is in our hearts and mouths

Probably worth a mention on those who will wear Scripture or Facebook it but will not live it.

1.7. Stop stalling

TODAY!

Would you join me in ending our procrastination?

We know what needs to be done--you know what needs to be done.

So often, we act like we need to understand a little better, we know but we are afraid to act.

Stop living in fear and stalling.

Stop living in obstinate ways.

1.8. Stop Looking for Signs

And stop procrastinating and covering it up with faith-y- fluffy words. You do not need someone to ascend to heaven or come down (again!) to bring the Word.

You have it.

Do it. God has given you a sign, and He has given you reminders!!

1.9. Conclusion

For us, it is about deliverance from sin. It is about protection from eternity and salvation from sin, hell, and our own fallen nature.

Book: By the Waters of Babylon

Worship. It is what the church does as we strive to honor God with our lips and our lives. And then, many churches argue about worship. I have about a half-dozen books on my shelf about worship, but adding Scott Aniol’s By the Waters of Babylon to the shelf has been excellent.

First of all, Aniol’s work is not based on solving a musical debate. While that branch of worship is often the most troublesome in the local church, By the Waters of Babylon takes a broader view. The starting point is the place of the church. That place is a parallel of Psalm 137, where the people of God, Israel, found themselves in a strange land. The people of God, again, find themselves in a strange land.
Second, in summary, the book works logically to the text of Scripture, primarily Psalm 137 but well-filled with other passages. Then it works outward from how the text addresses the problems submitted in the first chapter into how worship, specifically corporate worship, should look in the 21st century Weste…

Book Review: The Heart Mender by @andyandrews (Andy Andrews)

The Heart Mender: A Story of Second ChancesEver read a book that you just kind of wish is true?  That's my take on The Heart Mender by Andy Andrews.  It's a charming story of love and forgiveness, and it's woven into the historical setting of World War II America.  For the narrative alone, the book is worth the read, but the message it contains is well worth absorbing as well.However, let's drop back a minute.  This book was originally published under the title Island of Saints.  I read Island of Saints and enjoyed it greatly.  Now, Andrews has released it under a new title, with a few minor changes.  All of this is explained in the Author's Note at the beginning, but should be noted for purchaser's sake.  If you read Island of Saints, you're rereading when you read The Heart Mender.  Now, go ahead and reread it.  It will not hurt you one bit.Overall, the story is well-paced.  There are points where I'd like more detail, both in the history and the geog…
