What the Resurrection Means for Your Life Today

Today is the day Christians mark as Resurrection Sunday, in the belief that Jesus was raised from the dead after his crucifixion, death and burial.

We affirm, as the Scriptures tells us, that God raised Jesus from the dead as he had said would happen. (Matthew 28:6 “He is not here, for He has risen, just as He said. Come, see the place where He was lying.)

But what does that mean really and how does it relate to you today? Continue reading

Blog Anniversary Giveaway 2: The Case for the Resurrection

Screen Shot 2016-03-20 at 7.55.14 PMSince it is Holy Week, I thought this week’s blog anniversary giveaway ought to be resurrection focused.

So, here’s what I settled on. Gary Habermas’s message about the theological necessity and the historical truth of the resurrection of Jesus Christ is one message from my time at Liberty University I still remember fondly.

It’s true that without the resurrection of Jesus Christ, Christianity is “vain.” Yet, there are so many trying to tear down this truth. I want to you to be equipped friends.

So, if you want to win this book and be prepared to answer those skeptics comment here at the website, on my Facebook page, or Tweet me (@steakandabible). This drawing will close midnight on Resurrection Sunday (Easter).

 

Looking Back at 2013

Fewer than twelve hours remain in 2013, and like many others I am reflecting on the last year. There have been years I couldn’t wait to see end. But 2013 wasn’t one of those years.

There are 2013 memories and moments I’ll treasure forever (like visiting California for the first time!). Continue reading

November – a Time to Give Thanks

I can hardly believe it is November 11. It seems like just last week was August! Alas, there is a bite in the air and the holiday season, which always seems to fly faster than any other time of the year, is near at hand.

But it is still November and an excellent time to reflect and give thanks. I know many people on Facebook are listing something they are thankful for each day this month. Daily posts are a bit too much work, so I’m doing it a little differently. This list is not in order of importance, just in order of the way things popped into my brain. Continue reading

Two Great Sermons in Less Than an Hour

Got 40-50 minutes?

After listening to music on my commute for a couple of days, I settled on sermons for this morning’s drive. And in the 40-50 minute total drive time I was able to listen to two awesome ones that I know will challenge, convict and edify you if you can make the time for them. Both are proof that biblical preaching can be powerful even when it is brief. Continue reading
