Keeping our gaze Godward
A song I have on repeat
A worshipful companion to Acts and a song I have on repeat: Sovereign Grace’s “Let Your Kingdom Come.” It’s found on the Valley of Vision Album, which also features, “Only Jesus.” “O Great God,” “The Precious Blood,” and “In the Valley” and… just get the whole thing (Great stocking stuffer): https://open.spotify.com/album/7FbTaYTAVhDXENXeZ0k9ts?si=QS8RaQwBQrGqOMYohodyAA

Best Book on Sovereign Grace
If you want to dig deeper on the topic of God’s sovereignty in salvation, while I have read many, David Clotfelter’s book, Sinners in the Hands of a Good God offers the most compelling and helpful explanation of God’s love for us in choosing us to be His bride, and the certainty with which His eternal purposes for us will come to pass in Christ. I challenge you to put it down once you have picked it up. Get it here: https://www.amazon.com/-/es/David-Clotfelter/dp/0802481604
Great to do, even if you don't do it daily — do it at least once

Christmas Gift for men
Ok, this is a bonus and just for fun: if you are looking for a Christmas gift for the men in your lives, can I recommend cologne from https://gentlemansnod.com? Personally crafted and sold by a friend (the manufacturer and owner), his collection is AWESOME. I personally like Cosecha Catalana 2022 and Ernest (both named after people in history whose stories have something to do with the smell). They have tons of other shaving and grooming things men will love.
