LOVE to the uttermost – Devotional Readings for Holy Week

free ebook from John Piper at desiringGod.org

Comprised of eight excerpts (plus one prologue reading) selected from John Piper’s extensive writing and preaching ministry, this new devotional was compiled and shaped for use in personal devotions or family and group settings.

As Pastor John explains, this one term — uttermost — is loaded with significance. When used of Jesus’s willing death for his friends, it means he endured unimaginable degrees of suffering to do so (John 13:1, NAS).

To love to the uttermost is to love freely, without reserve or limit, and without flaw or failure. As we watch his arrest and trial and death unfold for eight days, we gaze on a God-man who begrudges no pain or reproach on his pathway to redeem lost sinners. This is the man who “humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross” (Philippians 2:8).

“Fix your gaze steadily on him,” John Piper writes of Holy Week, “as he loves you to the uttermost.” To that end, you can download the free devotional — Love to the Uttermost — in three formats:

Fotografii ale celor mai inedite puncte ale Terrei de la NASA

Agenţia spaţială americană NASA a publicat o carte de excepţie, cu fotografii ale celor mai inedite puncte ale Terrei, văzute din spaţiu, pe care o oferă gratuit, în format electronic.

Foto: NASA„Această carte celebrează frumuseţea Pământului, manifestată în tiparele, formele, culorile şi texturile pământului, ale oceanelor, gheţurilor şi atmosferei,” anunţă NASA în descrierea cărţii care cuprinde 75 de imagini uluitoare realizate cu ajutorul sateliţilor Terra, Landsat 5, Landsat 7, EO-1 şi Aqua.

Datorită senzorilor cu care sunt dotaţi aceşti sateliţi, imaginile arată mai mult decât se poate vedea cu ochiul liber. Ele au fost realizate „mai degrabă pentru a satisface privirea observatorului decât pentru interpretarea lor ştiinţifică”, spun reprezentanţii NASA.

Cartea poate fi descărcată gratuit, în două variante: Earth As Art (format .pdf) şi Earth As Art (aplicaţie de iPad).

The iPad and iPhone band caroling for Christmas

…all things were created through him and for him. Colossians 1:16

Remember this from 2010?

think… the ingenuity of the iPhone and iPad.  Northpoint Community Church, which always encourages their tech guys to use their talents to the glory of God, showed us how you could use this new (for last year) tech to play Christmas carols. Make sure you listen to all 7 minutes, as there are a couple of pauses between the carols.
