Jesus didn’t just surround himself with rough, cussing fishermen and Roman-collaborating tax collectors … he gave them a job description.
That’s right, the unwashed outsiders that most church folk would be muy uncomfortable even chatting with…? Jesus had some serious plans for them.
It would be easy to skip right from the calling of The Twelve to the task they were sent off to do… but in rushing through and skipping ahead, you’ll miss a few of the important bits.
That’s the beauty of expositional preaching — it gets you to slow down and appreciate the treasures you might have missed.
What treasures do you mean, exactly…?
I’m glad you asked.
Psalms of War: Prayers That Literally Kick Ass is a collection, from the book of Psalms, regarding how David rolled in prayer. I bet you haven’t heard these read, prayed, or sung in church against our formidable enemies — and therein lies the Church’s problem. We’re not using the spiritual weapons God gave us to waylay the powers of darkness. It might be time to dust them off and offer ‘em up if you’re truly concerned about the state of Christ’s Church and of our nation.
Also included in this book, Psalms of War, are reproductions of the author’s original art from his Biblical Badass Series of oil paintings.
This is a great gift for the prayer warriors. Real. Raw. Relevant.
