For from his fullness we have all received, grace upon grace. John 1:16

CIU's very own, Laura Story, singing "What a Savior." Happy Friday everyone!
“See, I lay a stone in Zion,
a chosen and precious cornerstone,
and the one who trusts in him
will never be put to shame.”

Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church on how Jesus died for our selfish ambition. "Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves." Philippians 2:3
Big Daddy Weave's "Redeemed" sheds a little light on Ephesians 1:7 which says: "In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace."
Have a great weekend everyone!
You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden. Nor do people light a lamp and put it under a basket, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:14-16)
Thanks, Jimmy Needham, for a reminder on this Friday of God's great faithfulness. "Because of the Lord’s great love we are not consumed, for his compassions never fail. They are new every morning; great is your faithfulness.
" (Lamentations 3:22-23)
