COVID-19 is a practical virus. It's totally changed my family's lifestyle - and we don't even have it! The resurrection is practical too. It profoundly affects our daily lives.
COVID-19 is spreading fear around the world. Any sort of catastrophe makes people wonder, "Is this the end?" Paul reassures us human history won't end with a virus; it ends with a victory.
Formulating our faith is like playing Jenga. Some beliefs can safely be tapped, poked or removed for inspection; others cannot. Jesus' resurrection is the cornerstone of our faith. If we take it out, the whole tower falls!
Happy Father's Day! I hope you had a wonderful time with your kids. I also hope it wasn't the only time you spent with them lately. Even good, godly men can lose track of their families. Let that not happen to us!
Babe Ruth towers over the game of baseball. His legacy continues when new players are inducted into the Hall of Fame. In the same way, Stephen towers over church history. His legacy continues when new martyrs die for Jesus.
