New ESV study Bible!!!

My best friend Kristi came last week for a quick a trip.  It was such a time of encouragement (and lots of laughter of coarse)!  But one of the highlights was when we went to buy the new ESV Study Bible.  We were so felt like Christmas...haha!  Anyway, the next morning we woke up early and went to Bean There (one of my FAVORITE coffeeshops...if you've never been get the Island Kiss iced) and started digging into our Bibles.  I know it sounds kinda silly to be so excited about a Bible, but I think what we are really excited about is that there has been a fresh passion and excitement for Gods Word that has infiltrated out hearts...and though the Bible is waaay cool and very helpful, we are most excited about going deeper into the glories of calvary as we read and study the Word!  We also started CJ Mahaney's new book, Worldliness, which is rocking our socks off :)  If you get the chance, pick it up, it is a very provoking book! 

"When someone sets his affections on the cross and the love of Christ, he crucifies the world as a dead and undesirable thing.  The baits of sin lose their attraction  and disappear.  Fill your affections with the cross of Christ and you will find no room for sin."  -John Owen 

Happy Monday!
