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!
Skeptics ask, "How can God exist when there is so much pain and suffering?" This is a tough question! Why does Jesus let Christians suffer for their witness? I will answer this question over the next three weeks.
Have you ever hooked up a light fixture or appliance in your home? This is what Jesus does when He saves us. He hardwires us into Himself by His Spirit.
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.
