Extended Morning Outline:

April 6 AM Lord's Supper

Serving God in the land of the idols

Judges 6

Destroying the idols

Committing to the fullest, and realizing that the there is no one to run interference--all that awaits us is the Cross

And our lives are already gone (Galatians 2:20)

Are you willing to fight? Are you willing to go forward?

TAKE ACTION TO DESTROY THE IDOLS IN YOUR LIFE!

Perhaps it is:

Canceling your overpriced TV service?

Ending your overpriced vacations?

Giving up your overcommitments?

Releasing your success dreams?

Letting your children, your grandchildren NOT be all you want them to be?

Expecting the church to be what you think it should rather than looking at Scripture?

Releasing your resentments from past disagreements?

The grace of God is this: He fellowships at a meal with Gideon before the action is complete

Let us take courage from this, and do likewise as we come to this meal together.

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…

Book: The Gospel Call and True Conversion

A quick note: This book, The Gospel Call and True Conversion, is currently available on Kindle for $4.99. This is the second in a series of 3, and the first, The Gospel’s Power and Message, is available for $2.99.The Gospel Call and True Conversion. The title of this book alone sounds intimidating, and adding that it’s written by one of the heavyweights of American Reformed Christianity, Paul Washer, does not lessen the intimidation factor. Washer is known to be a straightforward preacher—for good or for ill.What did I find in The Gospel call and True Conversion? I found some things to like:1. Paul Washer is passionate for the truth. He wants to know the truth. He wants to proclaim the truth. He wants the truth heard. He wants you to know the truth. This is good. It is good to see someone not try to base theology on popularity or as a response to modern events, but to base it clearly on truth. 2. There is a strong emphasis on the reality that true conversion (from the title) will resu…
