NAME OF GOD: Elohei Chasdi
Verse: O my strength, I will sing praises to You; For God is my stronghold, the God (Elohim) who shows me lovingkindness (Chasdi). - Psalm 59:17
Meaning: God of my kindness, goodness and faithfulness.
Elohei Chasdi, you are my stronghold and the God who shows me lovingkindness. I confess that I do not always look to you as my stronghold but rather attempt to solve my problems on my own. Forgive me for neglecting to make you the focal point when I am facing various trials or heartache. Forgive me for when I have turned to other means to try and find comfort instead of turning to your faithful kindness and goodness.
Rather than viewing the cross as an historical event that will take us to heaven, we ought to view it as a current event containing everything we need to bring heaven to bear on earth.
In The Power of the Cross, Tony Evans carefully and pastorally applies the cross of Christ to life today. In three parts, he considers:
• What makes Christ unique; how Old Testament prophecy and typology looked ahead to Him; and how His humiliation, death and resurrection sets Him apart as Lord
• What was accomplished on the cross for us, how it is to be the centerpiece of our lives, and how it's a source of authority for us
• What is the power of the cross and the stability it provides, deliverance it offers, the power of its ongoing remembrance, and more
The cross is the hinge of history. How much more, then, is it the hinge of your life? It gained more for you than you may realize; do not make the grave error of overlooking it. As a thank you for your gift of any amount, we’ll get this brand new book, The Power of the Cross, out to you right away.
