Friday's Five

Friday's Five is a list of five important must see or must reads to kick off your weekend.  

God is answering our prayers of salvation for those deceived by "Isalmic Jihad".  Read this modern day Paul "like" conversion of a Jihadist.

The Bible Project is producing some great, free resources for the church. Because the medium they use is animation, you might assume (without watching it) that this is only for kids.  But it's really something that could profit us all. 

"Follow your heart" is a creed found it books, movies, and music. It sounds right, it feels right, therefore it must be right.  Jon Bloom's new book "Don't follow your Heart" challenges readers to reevaluate this statement in light of Scriptural truth. 

Cling to Christ is track 7 from the album, Sooner Count the Stars: Worshiping the Triune God by Sovereign Grace Music.

Job lost everything: his wealth, his health, and his ten children. All swept away in one satanic storm. Reduced to a heap of flesh, ashes, and tears—rebuked by friends and jeered by strangers—righteous Job wrestled over the purpose and presence of God in the midst of unbearable pain.
Originally published by Desiring God in 2008 as a 128-page hardcover book, JŌB retold the biblical story through the beautiful, compassionate poetry of John Piper and the stunning illustrations of Chris Koelle.
Out of print shortly after its release, the story of JŌB is now being reintroduced through a new adaptation of moving artwork, music, and poetry: JŌB is an independently produced full-length (45 min.) motion graphics animated movie.
Through John Piper's own gripping narration of the poem, music by J. Aaron Greene, original illustrations by Chris Koelle, animation by Danny McNight, and line production by Will Parker, we are invited to revel in God's sovereign and surprisingly joyful purposes in allowing exquisite suffering in the lives of his saints. This story of human suffering and the sovereignty of God is artfully brought to new life as a deeply moving resource especially for those experiencing great suffering and loss.
Eureka Baptist Church will show this movie free of charge on Sunday, January 24th @ 6 p.m .
