Rend Collective – The Art of Celebration Review

Get your skinny jeans on and dust off your TOMS – Rend Collective are back, and this time safety glasses won’t be required as the Experiment is complete. And the results are good! Rend are releasing their new album soon (fittingly for a Northern irish band it comes out on March 17th, St Patrick’s day)…

Kingdom: King

“’Get out of here, Satan,’ Jesus told him. ‘For the Scriptures say “You must worship the Lord your God; Serve only him.”’” Matthew 4:10  Let’s stick with Jesus’ temptation in the desert for some more thoughts. Satan tries to get Jesus to bow down and worship him in order to gain the world. But Jesus…

Bethel – Ascend

This song, Ascend, from Bethel Music’s Tides album has been stuck in my head over the past few days, especially the chorus that reminds us that it is with “Clean hands and pure hearts [that] we will see God”. Listen to it. Meditate on the words. Read Psalm 24 from which they are taken. Ask the…

Review: What Would Jesus Post – Brian Wassom

What would Jesus post by Brian Wassom is a short book about how we should use social media as Christians. It is quite a timely book, as it is almost impossible today to not have some sort of social media profile, yet there hasn’t been a lot of good thought as to how as Christians we should approach…

Kingdom: Bread

“Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted there by the devil. For forty days and forty nights he fasted and became very hungry. During that time the devil came and said to him, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become loaves of bread.” But…

Dancing with Delilah

Introducing a new author to you today – Erin Watson, a nursing student from Liberty University in Virginia who writes poems and biblical truths on her website sixthimpossiblethingsbeforebreakfast and who I met during the summer. Dancing With Delilah – a poem about friends who have wandered from the God they once claimed to love I’m watching…

Rend Collective – Build your Kingdom Here

Rend Collective Experiment are one of our favourite bands here at All4God (not that we would have any sort of Northern Irish bias…) and as we get our Kingdom series underway (read all the parts so far by clicking here: Kingdom Series) we figured it would be relevant to highlight the Rend song Build Your Kingdom…

To live is Christ Review

To live is Christ is a new book by Matt Chandler that works through the book of Philippians. Philippians is one of my personal favourites of Paul’s letters, and it is probably one of the most quoted books of the Bible, in particular Philippians 4:13 very frequently being used out of context. And with Matt…

Repentance

“In those days John the Baptist came to the Judean wilderness and began preaching. His message was, “Repent of your sins and turn to God, for the Kingdom of Heaven is near.”” Matthew 3:1-2 Before Jesus comes into His ministry, John the Baptist comes first, preparing the way. He comes preaching a message that the…

Kingdom: Here and now

The Kingdom of God. That’s what happens when we die, right? That’s all about heaven, not about earth, right? Wrong! Something we need to get clear, right at the start of our look at the Kingdom is the fact that this isn’t mere speculation about some future possibility but is a discussion about a present…
