Announcing Fighter Verse Song Set 5 ::: The New CD is Here!

It’s done and ready for you to enjoy!

After more than a year of writing, recording, mixing and mastering – we’ve finally finished the fifth set of songs.

Here’s our sample video

Here’s the link to the Amazon page

Here’s the link to the downloadable songs

And here’s the official description:

The Fighter VersesTM Songs CD-Set 5 is comprised of word-for-word Bible passages (English Standard Version) set to music. These passages are specifically selected to help believers fight the fight of faith. The Fighter VersesTM Songs also coordinate with the five-year Fighter VersesTM Bible memory program from Children Desiring God.

This CD includes 33 songs (over an hour of music) from important and beloved Bible passages from 19 books of the Bible. The songs were creatively written and recorded to make Scripture memorization easy and fun.

Musical styles include folk, a cappella, jazz, blue grass, pop, gospel and family songs. Tunes are easy to learn, fun for kids and enjoyable to listen to on repeat.

The songs include passages from Romans 8 (Who shall separate us from the love of Christ?), Psalm 84 (A day in your courts is better than a thousand elsewhere), Numbers 23 (God is not man that he should lie), John 8 (If you abide in my word), and all of Psalm 34. Your children will memorize scripture without even trying-and so will you! Companion CDs for Sets 1, 3 and 4 are also available, as is the Extended Set 5 CD (the Sermon on the Mount).

And here’s a section of one of the reviews:

Just as wonderful as the other CDs in the series, Fighter Verse 5 makes hiding God’s Word in your heart a delight instead of a chore. I use it in the car while I’m driving my kids to activities…an awesome way to memorize Bible verses with little effort! The upbeat songs are both vocally and musically pleasing, with a variety of tempos and styles represented. I’d highly recommend it for anyone!

2-8 Application for Feb 25-26, 2017 :: Psalm 103:11-14


===

For seven weeks we’re memorizing Psalm 103. It’s a great psalm. Inspirational, God-glorifying, encouraging. I encourage you to accept the challenge.

This week’s verse starts at 1:41 in the video.

===

For as high as the heavens are above the earth, so great is his steadfast love toward those who fear him; as far as the east is from the west, so far does he remove our transgressions from us. As a father shows compassion to his children, so the LORD shows compassion to those who fear him. For he knows our frame; he remembers that we are dust.

Psalm 103:11-14

As far as the heavens are above the earth.
As far as the east is from the west.

That’s pretty far. It’s another way of saying “All the way”
That’s how much he loves us.
That’s how much he takes away our sin.

And how does much compassion does he have for us mere humans?
Compassion like a father.

This God, the one created the universe and is eternal and holy, He is not impersonal. He is not distant.

Worship this God.

For seven weeks we’re memorizing Psalm 103. It’s a great psalm. Inspirational, God-glorifying, encouraging. I encourage you to accept the challenge.

This week’s verse starts at 1:18 in the video.

===

The LORD is merciful and gracious, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love. He will not always chide, nor will he keep his anger forever. He does not deal with us according to our sins, nor repay us according to our iniquities.

Psalm 103:8-10

Here is mercy and grace.

We deserve his wrath – he is slow to anger and then not angry forever.
We are sinful and he does not treat us sinful
We have many iniquities and he doesn’t repay us.
We deserve bad and he gives us good.
He is abounding in steadfast love.

Jesus made a way. The Gospel made a way.

This is an infinitely important reason to bless the LORD.

Psalm 103:5-7

More reasons to bless the LORD:
He gives you satisfaction – so much so that you feel young and strong as an eagle.
He makes sure that righteousness and justice happen for oppressed people.
And he lets us know who he is and how we can be with him.

Thank the LORD. Worship the LORD. Bless the LORD!

2-5 Application for Feb 4-5, 2017 :: Psalm 103:1-4


===

For the next seven weeks we’re going to be memorizing Psalm 103. It’s a great psalm. Inspirational, God-glorifying, encouraging. I encourage you to accept the challenge.

===

Bless the LORD, O my soul, and all that is within me, bless his holy name! Bless the LORD, O my soul, and forget not all his benefits, who forgives all your iniquity, who heals all your diseases, who redeems your life from the pit, who crowns you with steadfast love and mercy

Psalm 103:1-4

We begin with a plea from a person to his own soul to bless the LORD. This will be repeated throughout the Psalm.

He gives many reasons to bless God:
Two of them remove the curse –
He forgives sins
He heals all diseases

And two of them are eternal blessings
He redeems you from the pit of the curse
He crowns you with his steadfast love and mercy.

Here is a God who is worthy of blessing.

Will you join with the Psalmist by encouraging your own heart to bless the LORD?

2-4 Application for Jan 28-29, 2017 :: Romans 15:1-2

===

We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.

Romans 15:1-2

Compared to other humans, you are strong in some ways. There are people who are weak compared to you with respect to certain attributes.

How do you act towards them?

Do you try to please yourself, or that weak person?

And with respect to those attributes where you are weak in comparison, how do you want the stronger people to act?

You want them to build you up and support you and give you encouragement and guidance.

Go therefore and do likewise.

2-3 Application for Jan 21-22, 2017 :: Psalm 16:11

===

You make known to me the path of life; in your presence there is fullness of joy; at your right hand are pleasures forevermore.

Psalm 16:11

God is not a joy-killer. God is not a pain delighter. God is not a stodgy rule-maker.

He puts on the road to life.
He wants to have joy. Not a little joy but full joy.
He doesn’t want us to have fleeting good feelings. He wants us to have pleasures forevermore.

Take it. Take his gift. Go into his presence. Go to his right hand.

He has made a way through His Son.

2-2 Application for Jan 14-15, 2017 :: Romans 10:13-15

===

For “everyone who calls on the name of the Lord will be saved.” How then will they call on him in whom they have not believed? And how are they to believe in him of whom they have never heard? And how are they to hear without someone preaching? And how are they to preach unless they are sent? As it is written, “How beautiful are the feet of those who preach the good news!”

Romans 10:13-15

This passage has the Gospel order backwards on purpose – as if to say “how can we get to our goal?”

Let’s look at it forward:
There must be senders to send preachers
Preachers must be sent to make sure the people hear.
The people must hear so they can believe.
They must believe so they will call on him.
They must call on him they will be saved.

And we want people to be saved. So we must send preachers.

And you – will you call on the name of the Lord?

2-1 Application for Jan 7-8, 2017 :: Isaiah 40:8

===

The grass withers, the flower fades, but the word of our God will stand forever.

Isaiah 40:8

Nothing is permanent. Nothing lasts forever. Even beautiful things that God has created, like flowers.

But God’s word, and all the truth about Him, and all the promises for us. They last forever.

One million years from now, God’s word will stand.

===

You prepare a table before me in the presence of my enemies; you anoint my head with oil; my cup overflows. Surely goodness and mercy shall follow me all the days of my life, and I shall dwell in the house of the LORD forever.

Psalm 23:5-6

Forever is an important word. Good things that we experience for a short time are not like the gifts you can enjoy your whole life. But even more precious are the blessings that God has in store for us throughout eternity.

And what is our eternal gift? To live in the house of the LORD. Forever.

If you are in Christ, if the LORD is your shepherd, your cup overflows and you have a table prepared for you.

Praise God. Thank him. All the days of your life.

1-48 Application for Dec 25-26, 2016 :: Psalm 23:3-4

===

He restores my soul. He leads me in paths of righteousness for his name’s sake.

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff, they comfort me.

Psalm 23:3-4

If you are a child of God, He is with you. So you don’t have to fear the days ahead, even if things are very dark. He will lead you with his strength and righteousness.

And his leadership will show you how to act more according to his will.

Your tendency used to be to run from God and his will, but he has changed you. Thank God.
