What commitment do we ask people to make?
This question from Nick Martin is one I often hear: If sin is best viewed as the prevailing power that holds the world under evil, what value (if any) do you ascribe to leading an individual throug…

The Resurrection of Christ – Was it Real? – Pathways to Organization
During those 40 days, He appeared to various groups of disciples, proving beyond doubt to them that he had been raised from the dead by the power of God! Over two decades later, the Apostle Paul wrote that “He appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living” (1 Corinthians 15:6). But these are written that you may believe that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, and that by believing you may have life in His name.” John 20:30-31 If you are not sure about trusting God for your salvation or even where to start, this verse is all you need to know to have salvation: “That if you confess with your mouth, “Jesus is Lord,” and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.

The Courage to Worship
(Takes Body of Christ to a whole 'nother level, doesn't it?) I do not ask the question expecting every woman to be a size 6 nor do I envision every man to have a 6-pack, but perhaps if we were literally able to look our faith in the mirror as we do our bodies we would be inclined to take better care of it. ~John 6:35, New International VersionA Good Stretch I began the prayer earlier this week with the words of an old gospel hymn I heard almost every Sunday during the devotion period at the church I attended as a child:Father, I stretch my hands to Thee,No other help I know,If I withdraw myself from Thee,Ah! My face already soaked with tears all I could say was,"If God is all we've got, God is all we need"then I dropped to my knees.I had nothing else to give.For years, the muscles of my faith had been stretched.Believe and believe again.Trust and trust more.Obey and obey despite.But the muscle memory of faith reminded meJesus Christ is the same yesterday and today and forever.
