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!
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.
Happy Mother's Day! In the hustle and bustle of parenting, it's easy to forget what a blessing our children are. Jochebed and Hannah remind us to enjoy them as much as we can.
Christians are often portrayed as burying our heads in the sand to avoid the facts. Despite this, we are more open to considering the facts than anyone! Paul bases our belief in Jesus' resurrection on cold, hard facts.
I love doing puzzles. Nothing is worse than realizing you're missing a piece! The American church is missing the most important piece of all. We must center our lives and ministries on Jesus' resurrection.
