Paul Washer – Dumnezeu L-a zdrobit pe Isus Hristos pentru a mântui pe păcătoşii nenorociţi

Pentru a fi un adevarat credincios, pentru a fi un copil al lui Dumnezeu Fiul Sfant al lui Dumnezeu a fost parasit de Tatal Sau iar apoi zdrobit de mania pedepsei Tatalui Sau Tu zici: “O, frate Paul, acum prea ai exagerat.”

Nu ati citit Isaia 53:10? “Domnul a gasit cu cale sa-L zdrobeasca.” Luati o piatra de 4-5 tone si puneti alta deasupra ei. Puneti un graunte de grau intre ele si vedeti ce iese la capatul celalalt. Ia un baraj inalt de peste 160.000 km si lat de mai bine de 160.000 km si lasa-l sa se despice in fata ta, iar in timp ce torentul de apa navaleste spre tine, spre a te-nvalui si a te distruge, deodata pamantul din fata ta se despica si inghite toata apa si nici macar o picatura nu-ti stropeste talpile.

Tot asa Hristos Si-a ridicat mana spre cer si a luat El mania lui Dumnezeu, paharul acela mare, si l-a baut tot. Cand a strigat: “S-a sfarsit!” El l-a intors cu susu-n jos si n-a mai cazut nicio picatura. El a baut mania lui Dumnezeu si a implinit dreptatea si a potolit mania si astfel Dumnezeu poate fi acum drept si totodata ierta pacatosul. Aceasta a facut El. Asta a facut El.
Puritanii au vorbit mult despre pocainta nu numai de pacate, ci si pocainta de faptele bune. Imi vei spune: ”Ce vrei sa spui?” Pocainta este, in adevaratul ei sens, pur si simplu aceasta: sa renunti la a mai incerca sa te justifici singur, pur si simplu renunti. Vezi ca absolut fiecare din faptele tale cele mai neprihanite nu sunt decat niste haine manjite si le detesti si le azvarli la podea si stai asa inaintea lui Dumnezeu si zici:”Daca nu faci ceva pentru mine, sunt condamnat.” Si crezi. Crezi. Te increzi.
In biserica mea de acasa e un diacon, – o biserica mica in mijlocul unui lan de porumb – si-l iubesc pe acest om. El umbla cu Dumnezeu de foarte multa vreme. Si el isi aminteste ca mi-a spus… Odata mi-a povestit despre convertirea lui. A zis: “Eram un om de treaba, ca oricare altul. Dar pastorul a spus ceva in dimineata aceea si mi-a rascolit inima. Si mam gandit: ”Ce inseamna sa crezi? Ce inseamna “a crede”? ” S-a suit in hambarul lui si se plimba de colo-colo pana ce – a zis el – in final s-a trezit ca statea cu talpile atarnand pe marginea hambarului. Statea acolo pur si simplu si mi-a zis: “Deodata, m-am luminat.” A zis asa: Doamne, ma voi increde, imi voi pune increderea exclusiv, numai in ceea ce a facut Fiul Tau pentru mine. Si daca insusi lucrul acela, daca ceea ce a facut El pentru mine nu este in stare sa ma salveze, atunci voi merge in iad, pentru ca eu nu ma voi increde in nimic altceva.

Daca predicatorul acesta ar muri chiar in clipa asta, s-ar duce in cer. Nu datorita anilor petrecuti prin jungle si prin muntii Anzi din Peru. Nu datorita pietatii, devotiunii sau studiului biblic. Nu datorita afilierii denominationale, botezului sau participarii la Cina Domnului. Daca as muri chiar acum, as merge in cer deoarece acum doua mii de ani, Fiul lui Dumnezeu Si-a varsat sangele pentru un astfel de nenorocit. Si aceasta este nadejdea mea, si nadajduiesc  … ca acest fir carmiziu este destul de tare sa ma tina atunci cand ma agat de el spre a sari in vesnicie. From

Video of the week – A graduation message: Make a difference with your life (John Piper from Passion 2000)

listen to the audio here.

Galatians 6:14

But may it never be that I would boast, except in the cross of our Lord Jesus Christ, through which the world has been crucified to me, and I to the world.

You don’t have to know a lot of things for your life to make a lasting difference in the world. But you do have to know the few great things that matter, and then be willing to live for them and die for them. The people that make a durable difference in the world are not the people who have mastered many things, but who have been mastered by a few great things. If you want your life to count, if you want the ripple effect of the pebbles you drop to become waves that reach the ends of the earth and roll on for centuries and into eternity, you don’t have to have a high IQ or EQ; you don’t have to have to have good looks or riches; you don’t have to come from a fine family or a fine school. You have to know a few great, majestic, unchanging, obvious, simple, glorious things, and be set on fire by them.But I know that not everybody in this crowd wants your life to make a difference. There are hundreds of you – you don’t care whether you make a lasting difference for something great, you just want people to like you. If people would just like you, you’d be satisfied. Of if you could just have good job with a good wife and a couple good kids and a nice car and long weekends and a few good friends, a fun retirement, and quick and easy death and no hell – if you could have that (minus God) – you’d be satisfied. THAT is a tragedy in the making.Three weeks ago we got word at our church that Ruby Eliason and Laura Edwards had both been killed in Cameroon. Ruby was over 80. Single all her life, she poured it out for one great thing: To make Jesus Christ known among the unreached, the poor, and the sick. Laura was a widow, a medical doctor, pushing 80 years old, and serving at Ruby’s side in Cameroon. The brakes failed, the car went over the cliff, and they were both killed instantly. And I asked my people: was that a tragedy? Two lives, driven by one great vision, spent in unheralded service to the perishing poor for the glory of Jesus Christ—two decades after almost all their American counterparts have retired to throw their lives away on trifles in Florida or New Mexico. No. That is not a tragedy. That is a glory.I tell you what a tragedy is. I’ll read to you from Reader’s Digest (Feb. 2000, p. 98) what a tragedy is: „Bob and Penny… took early retirement from their jobs in the Northeast five years ago when he was 59 and she was 51. Now they live in Punta Gorda, Florida, where they cruise on their 30 foot trawler, play softball and collect shells.” The American Dream: come to the end of your life – your one and only life – and let the last great work before you give an account to your Creator, be „I collected shells. See my shells.” THAT is a tragedy. And people today are spending billions of dollars to persuade you to embrace that tragic dream. And I get forty minutes to plead with you: don’t buy it.Don’t waste your life. (TO SEE THE ENTIRE 38 MINUTE video click here)

Don’t waste your life. It is so short and so precious. I grew up in a home where my father spent himself as an evangelist to bring the gospel of Jesus Christ to the lost. He had one consuming vision: Preach the gospel. There was a plaque in our kitchen for all my growing up years. Now it hangs in our living room. I have looked at it almost daily for about 48 years. It says, „Only one life, twill soon be past. Only what’s done for Christ will last.”

it matters what (that) your kid reads

Did you ‘get’ the titles of the books these cute sisters are reading? As adults, we have come to know that reading the Bible is the best way to stay strong in our faith. However, we see many who struggle to „make themselves” read. So, it’s important to teach kids to like (if not love) to read.

What books will you recommend that your kids read? And how do you instill the love of reading in your kids? Here is a link on 10 ways to get kids excited about reading.(One example-Show your kids that reading will introduce them to new people, take them to faraway places, and let them travel through time. Start a family or neigborhood book group) If you click on #3 it will take you to a page where you can sign up for a free e-newsletter for Printable Worksheets and age specific Activities for the Family in the following age group ranges-    0-3     4-6     7-11     12-18.

Here’s how you can make reading a part of your kids’ everyday lives. by Cindy Bond

1. Show your kids that reading will introduce them to new people, take them to faraway places, and let them travel through time. Start a family or neigborhood book group.

2. Sign up your kids (and yourself) for a book club.

3. Print out these bookmarks and your kids will never lose their place again!

4. Make the connection between fact and fiction for your kids. If they loved Stellaluna, point them toward this quiz on bats.

5. Have your kids recommend their favorite books to friends and get their friends’ recommendations.

6. Turn your kids into supersleuths. After they read a book, they can create an unbreakable, crazy code.

7. Be sneaky! Take our kids on a „book nick.” It’s kind of like a picnic, only better!

8. Remember that practice makes perfect. Help your kids practice rhyming words, drawing lines and shapes, and moving their eyes and hands from left to right.

This picture reminds me of my own childhood… My dad had bookcases lining the walls of several rooms, he always had a book in his pocket in case he had to wait at an appointment, and even when he took us to the park to play he sat quietly on a bench and read. Like father, like daughter. He instilled the love of reading into me for which I am forever grateful. My favorite book? The wisest, the most interesting, historic, literary and redeeming book of all- the Bible!

Race and the Christian – An Evening with John Piper and Tim Keller

From Desiring God – An Evening with John Piper and Tim Keller
Moderated by Anthony Bradley – Sponsored by Crossway and hosted by Redeemer Presbyterian Church in NYC
Published on May 15, 2012 by 

Wednesday night, March 28, John Piper and Tim Keller teamed up in New York City for a conversation, moderated by Anthony Bradley, about the gospel and race, based on John Piper’s book ‘Bloodlines‘. See link below video for free download of this book:

from , John Piper :

Bloodlines is one of the most autobiographical books I have written. It tells my story from racism to the path of redemption. I preached on the theme of Bloodlines yesterday to mark Martin Luther King weekend. The title of the message was “From Bloodlines to Bloodline.” I argued that God is calling his people to move from the alienation of many bloodlines to the reconciliation of the single bloodline that began on the cross of Christ.

I urged my people to read the book. Not because I care about selling books, but because I want them to know my story, to be aware to the global relevance of the issue, and to feel the hope that comes from the power of the gospel.

In making the book available in a PDF version online for free we are trying to remove every obstacle that might keep you from that experience.

John Wesley – a Hymn and (interesting) Directions on How To Sing

Hymn: Thou Hidden Love of God

Wesley, John (1703 – 1791)
John Wesley

John Wesley (Photo credit: Wikipedia)

Thou hidden love of God, whose height,
Whose depth unfathom’d no man knows,
I see from far thy beauteous light,
Inly I sigh for thy repose;
My heart is pain’d, nor can it be
At rest, till it finds rest in thee.
Thy secret voice invites me still,
The sweetness of thy yoke to prove:
And fain I would: but tho’ my will
Seem fix’d, yet wide my passions rove;
Yet hindrances strew all the way;
I aim at thee, yet from thee stray.
‘Tis mercy all, that thou hast brought
My mind to seek her peace in thee;
Yet while I seek, but find thee not,
No peace my wand’ring soul shall see;
O when shall all my wand’rings end,
And all my steps to thee-ward tend!
Is there a thing beneath the sun
That strives with thee my heart to share?
Ah! tear it thence, and reign alone,
The Lord of ev’ry motion there;
Then shall my heart from earth be free,
When it hath found repose in thee.
O hide this self from me, that I
No more, but Christ in me may live;
My vile affections crucify,
Nor let one darling lust survive;
In all things nothing may I see,
Nothing desire or seek but thee.
O Love, thy sov’reign aid impart,
To save me from low-thoughted care:
Chase this self-will thro’ all my heart,
Thro’ all its latent mazes there:
Make me thy duteous child, that I
Ceaseless may Abba, Father, cry!
Ah no! ne’er will I backward turn:
Thine wholly, thine alone I am!
Thrice happy he who views with scorn
Earth’s toys, for thee his constant flame;
O help that I may never move
From the blest footsteps of thy love!
Each moment draw from earth away
My heart that lowly waits thy call:
Speak to my inmost soul, and say,
I am thy love, thy God, thy all!
To feel thy power, to hear thy voice,
To taste thy love, be all my choice.

I. Learn these tunes before you learn any others; afterwards learn as many as you please.II. Sing them exactly as they are printed here, without altering or mending them at all; and if you have learned to sing them otherwise, unlearn it as soon as you can.III. Sing all. See that you join with the congregation as frequently as you can. Let not a single degree of weakness or weariness hinder you. If it is a cross to you, take it up, and you will find it a blessing.

IV. Sing lustily and with good courage. Beware of singing as if you were half dead, or half asleep; but lift up your voice with strength. Be no more afraid of your voice now, nor more ashamed of its being heard, then when you sung the songs of Satan.

V. Sing modestly. Do not bawl, so as to be heard above or distinct from the rest of the congregation, that you may not destroy the harmony; but strive to unite your voices together, so as to make one clear melodious sound.

VI. Sing in time. Whatever time is sung be sure to keep with it. Do not run before nor stay behind it; but attend close to the leading voices, and move therewith as exactly as you can; and take care not to sing to slow. This drawling way naturally steals on all who are lazy; and it is high time to drive it out from us, and sing all our tunes just as quick as we did at first.

VII. Above all sing spiritually. Have an eye to God in every word you sing. Aim at pleasing him more than yourself, or any other creature. In order to do this attend strictly to the sense of what you sing, and see that your heart is not carried away with the sound, but offered to God continually; so shall your singing be such as the Lord will approve here, and reward you when he cometh in the clouds of heaven.From John Wesley’s Select Hymns, 1761
