Psalm 63 (Listen)

A Psalm of David, when he was in the wilderness of Judah.

63:1   O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;    my soul thirsts for you;  my flesh faints for you,    as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.  So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary,    beholding your power and glory.  Because your steadfast love is better than life,    my lips will praise you.  So I will bless you as long as I live;    in your name I will lift up my hands.

  My soul will be satisfied as with fat and rich food,    and my mouth will praise you with joyful lips,  when I remember you upon my bed,    and meditate on you in the watches of the night;  for you have been my help,    and in the shadow of your wings I will sing for joy.  My soul clings to you;    your right hand upholds me.

  But those who seek to destroy my life    shall go down into the depths of the earth;10   they shall be given over to the power of the sword;    they shall be a portion for jackals.11   But the king shall rejoice in God;    all who swear by him shall exult,    for the mouths of liars will be stopped.

Discipleship Training
Gospel Transformation by World Harvest Mission
I heard a lot about Gospel Transformation through the grapevine but I finally got my hands on it a few weeks ago. It’s a 36 week inductive study focusing in on the gospel and our ongoing need for it no matter how long you’ve been a Christian. A few brothers of mine are going to start up soon. After flipping through the contents, it’s probably one of the best discipleship resources out there.
Sonship by World Harvest Mission
I haven’t really gotten a chance to go through this one yet, but it looks very promising. In addition, they have a one week Sonship Retreat as well as phone mentoring as well.
Gospel Centered Living
This is a shorter adaptation of Gospel Transformation. We went through this a few years ago and was very helpful in shaping our understanding of the gospel and our mission.
Matthias Media
I went to a conference by 9Marks and was introduced to ministry from Australia called Matthias Media. I was open to a whole new world! Well, not really. Back in my Boston days, there was a Korean couple from Australia who trained us in leading growth groups. Now I know they were trained by Matthias Media materials back in their university days. Anyway, their gospel resources are solid and they are constantly pumping out new tools and resources.

Gospel Presentations
John 3:16
Here’s Pastor Ken’s attempt to summarize the gospel using John 3:16
Two Ways to Live
A concise summary of the gospel that tells the whole story of God’s redemptive plan from beginning to end. There are tracts for adults and children and its translated in many languages including Chinese.
The Big Story
James Choung is coming out with a new book, True Story: A Christianity Worth Believing In. Instead of going through a tract, which would roll the eyes of many skeptics, James whips out a piece of scrap paper and starts drawing. He starts with human longings and how it points to creation and from there, tells the story of God’s rescue mission. I like the holistic element and how the gospel not only saves and transforms individuals, but also how the gospel transforms society and the world we live in.
How Can I Know God?
This isn’t a gospel tract or a tool, but a great article by Tim Keller called, How Can I Know God?
