“Too many Christians are content with appearing to be a bit more moral than the people around them. But the difference between a true Christian and a non-Christian is not about subtle moral distinctions—it’s the difference between being alive and being dead!”

Francis Chan, You and Me Forever: Marriage in Light of Eternity

✞ Music “O The Blood” by Gateway Worship (feat Kari Jobe)

O the blood
Crimson love
Price of life’s demand
Shameful sin
Placed on Him
The Hope of every man

O the blood of Jesus washes me
O the blood of Jesus shed for me
What a sacrifice that saved my life
Yes, the blood, it is my victory

Savior Son
Holy One
Slain so I can live
See the Lamb
The great I Am
Who takes away my sin

O the blood of the Lamb
O the blood of the Lamb
O the blood of the Lamb
The precious blood of the Lamb
What a sacrifice
That saved my life
Yes, the blood, it is my victory

O what love
No greater love
Grace, how can it be
That in my sin
Yes, even then
He shed His blood for me.

I Don’t Think I’m Good Enough?!

“To make it quite practical I have a very simple test. After I have explained the way of Christ to somebody I say “Now, are you ready to say that you are a Christian?” And they hesitate. And then I say, “What’s the matter? Why are you hesitating?” And so often people say, “I don’t feel like I’m good enough yet. I don’t think I’m ready to say I’m a Christian now.” And at once I know that I have been wasting my breath. They are still thinking in terms of themselves. They have to do it. It sounds very modest to say, “Well, I don’t think I’ good enough,” but it’s a very denial of the faith. The very essence of the Christian faith is to say that He is good enough and I am in Him. As long as you go on thinking about yourself like that and saying, “I’m not good enough; Oh, I’m not good enough,” you are denying God – you are denying the gospel – you are denying the very essence of the faith and you will never be happy. You think you’re better at times and then again you will find you are not as good at other times than you thought you were. You will be up and down forever. How can I put it plainly? It doesn’t matter if you have almost entered into the depths of hell. It does not matter if you are guilty of murder as well as every other vile sin. It does not matter from the standpoint of being justified before God at all. You are no more hopeless than the most moral and respectable person in the world.”

“If we believe that Jesus of Nazareth is the only begotten Son of God and that He came into this world and went to the cross of Calvary and died for our sins and rose again in order to justify us and to give us life anew and prepare us for heaven-if you really believe that, there is only one inevitable deduction, namely that He is entitled to the whole of our lives, without any limit whatsoever.”

D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Studies in the Sermon on the Mount

New Beginnings

“You win over people just like you win over a dog. You see a dog passing down the street with an old bone in his mouth. You don’t grab the bone from him and tell him it’s not good for him. He’ll growl at you. It’s the only thing he has. But you throw a big fat lamb chop in front of him, and he’s going to drop that bone and pick up the lamb chop, his tail wagging to beat the band. And you’ve got a friend. Instead of going around grabbing bones from people… I’m going to throw them some lamb chops. Something with real meat and life in it. I’m going to tell them about New Beginnings.”

David Wilkerson, The Cross and the Switchblade

✞ Music “In The End” by FORTHANGEL

“In The End”

Get in and quickly close the door,
And we must keep silent.
The end is coming and we’re not safe yet.
My bones are shanking to the core
For fear of what they might know.
I hear them whispering,
I think I heard my name.

They wait under the city lights
Like shadows in the dark.
They’ve waited and their time has come to reign.

Forgive me for coming off angry,
Lie in the bed you made.
The fire will consume the earth and all that remain.
So many ignorant and evil minds search for a sign.

They worship the idols that they’re shown,
All the actors, the politicians.
Forgetting everything that matters,
The blind lead the fall.
They are guilty, they are wrong.
Losing sense of direction.
They had their chance but now it’s gone away withtime.

They live under the city lights
Like shadows in the dark.
They’ve waited and their time has come to reap.

Forgive me for coming off angry,
Lie in the bed you made.
The fire will consume the earth and all that remain.
So many ignorant evil minds search for a sign.

So shall it be that in the end the angels shall comeforth
And sever off the wicked ones;
The streets will flow with their blood.

In the end the wicked shall fall,
In the end the wicked shall fall,
In the end the wicked shall fall,
In the end the wicked shall FALL!
In the end the wicked shall fall,
In the end the wicked shall fall,
In the end the wicked shall fall.

So many ignorant evil minds search for a sign.
So many ignorant evil minds search for a sign…

✞ Music “My Life Is An Offering by Sovereign Grace Music

“My Life Is An Offering”
[Based on Romans 12:1-2]

VERSE 1
This life is an altar
Where I want to offer
My soul, and my mind, and strength
Cleansed by Your mercy to live a life worthy
Of the One Who called my name

CHORUS
Jesus, be glorified
Jesus, be magnified
Let me be a pleasing sacrifice
Jesus, be glorified
Jesus, be magnified
Here on the altar
My life is an offering

VERSE 2
How could I not love You?
You authored my rescue
Raised me up from death to life
Your Spirit is in me, revealing Your glory
Oh what joy as I give my life

BRIDGE
I choose to lose my life, Lord
And find it in You

No Fear

Quote 4 2day title logo Blog

We are often hindered from giving up our treasures to the Lord out of fear for their safety; this is especially true when those treasures are loved relatives and friends. But we need have no such fears. Our Lord came not to destroy but to save. Everything is safe which we commit to Him, and nothing is really safe which is not so committed.
A. W. Tozer

Shadow Of The Beast

Shadow Of The Beast

by Steve Rebus

 

A tortured soul, wriggling with sin,

So much horror to know where to begin,

The black hands of Satan hold me from within.

Lord of my heart, Father to my soul,

Stop the firey darts, and take control,

Give me a new start and fill this black hole.

You hear my call, from the shadow of the beast,

No giants too tall, no longer a feast,

Your blood saves all; even the least. 

The eyes of my heart are now open,

Reading the words you had spoken,

Your light shines brighter through the broken.

I’m not sure if this is a poem or if it will turn into a song, but I thought I would share it with you anyway, hope you enjoy! 😀

Prince Of Darkness

My Thoughts 💭 

I am writing this post after being completely stunned by just listening to an Alice Cooper song that I spent most my adult years (aged 14-30) listening to, singing to and rocking out to, but had no idea what it meant! I simply can’t believe this and how I could ever miss it! 

This instantly brought me to the verse below and got me thinking just how thick the veil must be as I wore it for so long. I sit here in complete disbelief that I could have missed what the song is about and I knew every word. This is the first time I have heard this song as a Christian and it just stopped me in my tracks,

📖 Verse 4 2day ~ 2 Corinthians 4:3(NIV)

And even if our gospel is veiled, it is veiled to those who are perishing.


📓 Lyrics 4 2day!

Alice Cooper ~ Prince of Darkness Lyrics:

An angel fell one stormy night
From Heaven’s Glory
He split the earth to reign in Hell
He fears the light
He fears the truth
He fears what’s going to be
He spits on life
He spits on God
He spits up death for you and me

Prince of Darkness
Studies the world with hungry eyes
Prince of Darkness
Ready to baptize you in lies
Heart of evil, soul of blackness
Prince of Darkness

He saw that man was just a boy
With a baby’s mind
He swore damnation of God’s creation
He lives for hate
He lives for tears
He lives up to his name
He knew the light
He knew the one
Who was crucified in pain

Prince of Darkness
Studies the world with hungry eyes
Prince of Darkness
Ready to baptize you in lies
Heart of evil, soul of blackness
Prince of Darkness

He fears the light
He fears the truth
He fears what’s going to be
He spits on life
He spits on God
He spits up death for you and me

Prince of Darkness
Studies the world with hungry eyes
Prince of Darkness
Ready to baptize you in lies
Heart of evil, soul of blackness
Prince of Darkness

He smells the breath
Of sweet human sin
And deeply breathes it in
Prince of Darkness 

More Thoughts 💭 

I feel pretty silly revealing this to you but I felt I needed to share this, I have read this verse so many times just lately as I am praying for the salvation of my family, but  today I sit amazed how the word of God is right there in everything, and they simply can’t see it through the veil.

The irony is that I was fully sighted when I was blind to the truth, and now I am registered blind I can see! 😀
