Music Video: Whom Shall I Fear [God of Angel Armies] – Chris Tomlin

You hear me when I call
You are my morning song
Though darkness fills the night
It can not hide the Light
Whom Shall I Fear

You crush the enemy
Underneath my feet
You are my Sword and Sheild
Though troubles linger still
Whom Shall I Fear

I know who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of Angel Armies
Is always by my side
The one who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of Angel Armies
Is always by my side

My strength is in Your Name
For You alone can save
You will deliver me
Yours is the victory
Whom shall I fear
Whom Shall I Fear

I know who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of Angel Armies
Is always by my side
The one who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of Angel Armies
Is always by my side

And nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in Your hand
I’m holding on to Your promises
You are faithful
You are Faithful

And nothing formed against me shall stand
You hold the whole world in your hand
I am holding on to your promises
You are faithful
You Are Faithful
You Are Faithful

I know who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of Angel Armies
Is always by my side (x2)

I know who goes before me
I know who stands behind
The God of Angel Armies
Is always by my side
The one who reigns forever
He is a friend of mine
The God of Angel Armies
Is always by my side

The God
Of Angel Armies
Is always by my side

46.  Church of the Resurrection of Leawood, Kansas – Pastored by Adam Hamilton.  This church is a Methodist church that seems to steer far away from charismatic manifestations of the Spirit.  Their current sermon series is on revival and it doesn’t exactly talk about tongues.  The church uses this spiritual gifts test and it’s pretty tame.  There’s a sermon from 2002…

The One Thing That May Give Marriage Equality Activists Pause to Reconsider Their Position…

Zwinglius Redivivus

Joel Osteenk is on your side.  And WND as well as the HuffPo are reporting the ‘news’.  The HuffPo with its usual gleefulness and WND surprisingly non-commitally.

But here’s the thing- especially for Christians who support marriage equality.  Joel Osteen agrees with you.  Or perhaps more tellingly- you agree with Joel Osteen.  You. Agree, With. Osteen.

I hope that helps you sleep well tonight.

9 Lessons for New Christians . . . And Old Ones

It’s been a long time since I became a Christ follower (39+ years ago), but I still think about what I wish I had known back then. You see, my first years as a believer were not easy. My family was not a Christian family. I was in my early teens, wanting to be faithful to God but also seeking to fit in with my peers. My church loved me, but discipleship was not intentional. I wish someone had helped prepare me for the journey.

If I were writing a new believer’s guide today for people like me, I would include a simple “lessons learned” section with at least these lessons:

Do Not Be Surprised…This ‘n’ That (04 October 2013)

  • Here’s your weekly dose of adorable.

  • All that preaching and John MacArthur can sing, too.
  • Dr. Michael Kruger compiles the top ten books on the Bible’s authority.
