I have had a great evening tonight. My family has been gone since Sunday, so my evenings have been fairly free. So, after I had a quick dinner (which I made myself), I have engaged myself with some work and writing some blogs.
One thing I have been working on is watching some videos that I will be posting in future weeks as part of my "Video Sunday" series. I have had a great time listening to some of my favorite preachers as they articulate some incredible truths of God's Word. For some reason, my heart is always drawn back to the message of the gospel.
As I have been watching and listening, I have come to realize how much I need the gospel each and everyday of my life. As a Christian, I need Jesus as much today as I did yesterday. Not because I need to be saved again. But because my heart tends to wander from Him. But His love always pulls me back! As I have been thinking about that, I came across this video and it was too good to wait. I had to share it tonight.
Someone has put together some great words from Matt Chandler & John Piper with the music of David Crowder centered in on how much God loves us. And I needed it! I needed the reminder of how much God loves and how His arm reaches and extends and moves and shakes me awake from my slumber. If you have the time, I hope you take it to watch this entire video. Maybe you need it as much as I did tonight!
(p.s., I have no idea how to get rid of that pop up ad about 10 sec into the video. I have heard that YouTube is now embedding all their videos with advertisements. Hopefully your ad blocker will catch it, if not, just click the x button on the top right of the advertisement)
