There's nothing that will fulfill you more than discovering how you fit into God's eternal plan to bless the world through His church. But to find our place in Jesus' church, we must understand what it is, how it works, and what it's meant to do in this world. We must come to see the church as God's great mystery, a new humanity united in one family around the faith and mission of the Messiah.

Whether you realize it or not, your entire life hangs on just one thing, one extraordinary event the Bible claims happened 2000 years ago: the resurrection of Jesus Christ. If it didn't actually happen - if it's just a story, a metaphor, a legend - then your life is utterly meaningless and there is no hope for any of us. But if it did happen, if Jesus really did conquer death and rise from the dead, then the God of the Bible exists, His Word is true, you have hope and purpose, and everything else in life "is just rock'n'roll!" Discover the top 5 reasons why I believe beyond a reasonable doubt that Jesus really did walk out of that tomb on Easter Sunday.

In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth. While that statement seems simple enough, issues surrounding the creation event - the HOW and the WHEN - have confused and divided Christians for millennia. However, while it's worth studying the various views, we must not forget that Genesis 1 was never primarily intended to answer those questions. It was written to tell us WHO created and WHY He did it. In this light, Genesis 1 fills us with life-changing peace, security, and personal significance!

Scripture: James 2:14-26

For centuries Christians have wrestled with the apparent contradiction between James and Paul. Are salvation and justification by faith alone (Rom 3:28, 4:5, Eph 2:8-9), or are works required (James 2:14,24)? The key is to recognize that Paul and James were talking about different things. Paul tells us how to be saved from the penalty of sin and how to be declared righteous by God: by grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone. James, in contrast, tells us how, already saved from hell, we save ourselves from loss of reward at the Judgment Seat of Christ and from a useless life on earth, and how we demonstrate to the world that we are, indeed, righteous: by following faith with good works. James 2 doesn't undermine our assurance of salvation; it convicts us to get busy doing good works!

True Religion - true devotion to God - is defined less by how much we know and more by how we apply what we know. God's Word unapplied is useless to us. But if we'll put our knowledge of His Word into practice by fleeing from what it prohibits and practicing what it commands, God will bless us and use us to make a lasting difference in this world.

It is human nature to shift blame. When life gets tough and we succumb to sin, it can be so tempting to blame God. But James will not allow it. God does not tempt us for God cannot be tempted by sin. Temptation comes not from God, but from within us, from the sinful desires that are innate to us. They lure us towards sin, and when we take the bait, sin reaps pain and destruction in our lives. But we can escape this pattern of sin and destruction IF we will take responsibility. Own up to your sin, or it will own you!

In this world, it's assumed that it is always better to be rich than poor, to have more rather than less. But God's kingdom operates according to a very different set of values, a set of values that are both counter-intuitive to our nature and counter-cultural in this world.

Joy in the midst of trials? At best that sounds like a paradox; at worst, ridiculous and insulting. And yet James commands us to choose joy when we suffer. Such a perspective is only possible when we see through the trials to the good that God can accomplish through them.

Money can be a great blessing or a destructive curse; it all depends on how you use it. To be blessed by your wealth, practice the spiritual disciplines of simplicity and sharing.

Most perceive Spiritual Disciplines as being primarily about our relationship with God...and this is for the most part true. Yet, among the disciplines, Service stands out as a faith-sharpener that is more horizontal than vertical. We are redeemed to serve God and we serve God by serving others (in and outside of the church) with godly motivations and using the power and gifts the Spirit provides. Such service strengthens our walk, glorifies God and winsomely draws unbelievers toward life in Christ.

Self-denial doesn't make God love us more. In fact, all acts of self-denial can quite easily become forms of self-righteousness that move us away from God. However, the physical hunger associated with fasting can also serve as a reminder of our deeper hunger and need for God. Fasting can, with a humble and dependent spirit, strengthen our will to take dominion over potentially addictive, destructive appetites, both physical and spiritual. Fasting can help draw us near to God - as our appetites are brought under control, we become more sensitive to our hunger for God.
