A fully Christian view of the Bible includes the idea of God’s self-revelation but, by setting it in a larger context, transforms it.
Precisely because the God who reveals Himself is the world’s lover and judge, rather than its absentee landlord, that self-revelation is always to be understood within the category of God’s mission to the world, God’s saving sovereignty let loose through Jesus and the Spirit and aimed at the healing and renewal of all creation. N.T. Wright, Scripture and the Authority of God
Here is a quick remix I threw together for a song I wrote a good while back. I’m still trying to write verses on this one, but I cannot manage to write anything that sticks.
Just wanted to keep the creative ball rolling…(115 plays)
Today’s creative effort features lots of nasty overdrive. We’ll call it “Bass Cannon in E.” The yell at the end was recorded on my Macbook mic…the clipping suits the song quite well!(81 plays)
Many great hymns I didn’t like in my early days, because I heard them sung in some dead prayer meeting with a dead song leader who did not expect anything, and a dead congregation in front of him who did not expect anything. Both would have been shocked if anything happened. They had a spirit of no expectation.
True worship that is pleasing to God creates within the human heart a spirit of expectation and insatiable longing. A.W. Tozer, The Purpose of Man
You do not find meekness and majesty united very much. The meekness was His humanity, and the majesty was His deity.
Our Lord Jesus Christ is majestic and meek. Before His foes, He stands in majesty; and before His friends, He bows in meekness. You can experience either side you want. If you choose not the meek side of Jesus, you will experience the majestic side of Jesus. A.W. Tozer, The Purpose of Man
Trying to spend a little time in unstructured creativity. Today’s snippet turned out to be a short electroacoustic adventure.(69 plays)
When we lose hope in ourselves, when the present becomes dark and the future black before us, when effort after effort has issued only in disheartening failure, and our sin looms big before our despairing eyes; when our hearts hate and despise themselves, and we remember that God is greater than our hearts and cannot abide the least iniquity; the Spirit whom He has sent to bring us to Him still labors with us, not in indifference or hatred, but in pitying love.
Yea, His love burns all the stronger because we so deeply need His help: He is yearning after us with jealous envy. B. B. Warfield, The Love of the Holy Ghost
