COLTON DIXON-THROUGH ALL OF IT
I’ve been reading Jud Wilhite’s new book Pursued and it’s about the story of Hosea in the Bible. He was a prophet and God told him to marry a prostitute! The story obviously talks about marriage, but it’s really a parallel to God’s relationship with his people. It’s about how he pursues us and loves us even when we’re not fully understanding or seeking him.
The book talks about how we take the wrong approach when we think we’ve done certain things FOR God. So HE should be obligated to do certain things for US, such as forgive US or dump a ton of blessings in OUR life. However, Jud Wilhite says “that’s like approaching God with a religious car salesman attitude.”
Colton Dixon was part of American Idol last season, and his new CD just released this week. He checked in with our show to talk about The Superbowl, the new American Idol judges and how God's been challenging him recently.

Talked with Dr. Elliot Shin MD today about The Operation Hope Medical Clinic in Las Vegas. They provide free medical care to families that need it. Here's the details.
I saw this from Rick Warren and it really challenged me:
In The Purpose Driven Life, he says: "Many who claim to believe the Bible from cover to cover have never actually read it from cover to cover! But if you will take just 15 minutes a day, you will read completely through it in a year. If you cut out one 30 minute television program per day, can read through the Bible twice in a year."
We probably don't feel excited about God's Word cause we're not reading it. We can't get excited about something we don't really know. Here's a couple ideas.
You can download the free You Version app and follow one of their free 1 year Bible reading plans.
In The Purpose Driven Life, Rick Warren said: “To be a healthy disciple of Christ, feeding on Gods Word must be your first priority. Jesus called it abiding. He said if you abide in my word then you are truly disciples of mine.”
It all comes back to figuring out what the ultimate authority is in your life. Cause it supersedes culture, tradition & emotion. It’s God’s word.
If the resolutions haven't worked out as planned, here's one way to adjust our strategy. Make God's Word our moral & spiritual authority. We can stand on that and navigate anything that life throws at us.

Francis Chan says, “I think the fear of God failing us leads us to cover for God. This means we ask for less, expect less, and are satisfied with less because we are afraid to ask more or expect more. I can’t imagine how much it pains God to see His children hold back from relationship with the Holy Spirit out of fear that He won’t come through. How much it grieves Him to watch His children ignore the promises He’s made throughout the Bible due to the fear that those promises won’t be kept.” (From his book: Forgotten God)
Last week at Passion Conference I heard Francis Chan talk about how the older he grows, the less he trusts people. The more he’s reminded about the evil in the world. But he said, "The longer I walk with God, the more I trust the words in the Bible. They are life changing.
