The Gospel Prayer and Resources

Posted by Pastor J.D. on August 23, 2011

As we continue along in the GOSPEL series we want to make you aware of all the resources available which you can use in your personal and family devotional times. Here is the Gospel prayer if you have not yet had a chance to pick up a bookmark. I pray this prayer virtually every day and I encourage you to do the same.

We are also reading through the Gospel of John through this series. If you start now you can read through the entirety of the book almost twice before we finish the series.

Here is a helpful guide for those of you who may need some direction when starting a devotional time.

For more resources such as the latest weekend message, small group study guides, as well as a link to the first chapter of JD’s book go here.

  1. This is a shameful admission, but with the exception of THE HELP, it has been ages since I’ve picked up a book and could not seem to put it down (and yep…that includes the Bible)! But, I could not seem to put down JD’s book “Gospel” (or Chapter 1 rather – as the book in it’s entirety isn’t released until October 1, 2011). I can’t wait to purchase a copy. The words on the page SO resonated with my life and all of my futile attempts to live this Christian life and role of a aspiring pastor’s wife (and always feeling like I’ve failed miserably in the process). I can’t tell you how many times EACH day I questioned if I was good enough, saved enough, had faith enough, believed enough, read my Bible enough, taught my kids enough, forgave enough, GAVE enough, prayed enough, fellowshipped enough, loved enough….alway realizing that I ALWAYS came up short; and now realizing that I will ALWAYS come up short! I think (for the first time in my heathen and ‘Christian’ life) – I get it, I really get it: there is absolutely NOTHING that I can do to make God love me any more and nothing that I’ve done that will make Him me any less. I am learning what it means to really abide, truly REST in HIS love for me!

    Thanks JD and I’m looking forward to reading the rest of “GOSPEL”!

    [...] Further, the psalm continues that the blessed person meditates on the aforementioned law day and night. That seems to me to be the practical advice to help me delight in Christ – spend much time meditating on Him and what He accomplished for me. I will say that this approach has always helped and the practice of constantly thinking of Christ and His sacrifice does create in me a changed perspective and a joy (thanks, Gospel Prayer!). [...]
