I have been listening to Revive Our Hearts with Nancy Leigh DeMoss since she came on the air nearly ten years ago. Wow! that’s a long time. In the past few years I have listened by podcast. This is ROH’s tenth year of ministry and they have been replaying some of the series women have found the most helpful and listened to the most. Tune in and have a listen, I promise, you will be blessed!
Yesterday Nancy began a brand new series that will take us up to the days just after Easter. It is called The Incomparable Christ. Last year Nancy read the book by J. Oswald Sanders in the days leading up to Easter. It was such a blessing to her that this year she is taking the book and using it as this new series.
I decided I wanted to get the book and use it in my quiet time, reading a chapter each day and following along on the broadcast with Nancy. I thought maybe some of you would want to do the same. You might even have the book already on your bookshelf, and just have never read it (whew, like many of mine) or not in a long time. I encourage you to get the book and tune into Revive Our Hearts in your area. If she is not on the radio in your area,(and she is not if you are in Denver), you can podcast like I do, or go straight to the website and listen each day.
Easter is about six weeks away yet. And I am not needing six weeks to get my house cleaned and decorated or a meal planned and prepared. But the inside of me probably needs every bit of six weeks to prepare! Taking part in this venture does make me a little nervous though because when I look at Jesus Christ I will find myself so lacking. I know there is a lot more of “Sherry” than of “Jesus” in my motives and thinking and desires. Even all the good stuff that I do that I think is so righteous and godly can not compare to Who He is. In fact it is down right ugly on the inside. I know I do not want to look at that ugliness and admit it is there. But, to look at it and then to Chris, and be transformed into His likeness, that I’m looking forward to!
I’m excited to share this and invite you to come along for the journey. By the time Easter arrives, we might all be transformed and have a deeper love in response to all the Christ is. Let me know if you decide to, we can pray for each other and encourage one another!
