The Resurrection

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the story at the heart of the Bible, at the heart of the Gospel, and at the heart of what it means to be a Christian. Read about this miraculous event in the Gospel according to Matthew. Then, in the First Letter to the Corinthians, the Apostle Paul explains how the Christian faith rises or falls with the resurrection. These readings are from a Bible translation called "The Voice," published by Thomas Nelson. It's a modern language translation that presents scripture as story.

Gathering Together

Going to church has gotten a bad wrap the last few years. Why? Because Satan has been vigorously assaulting God’s work in an effort to destroy it from the inside and out. But don’t give up on church. The church was left behind by the risen Jesus to represent Him in the world. So let’s get back to attending, improving and supporting our churches, and do what He said. When empowered by the Holy Spirit, the church can change our world, including the lives of those closest to us. Here are 101 reasons to be there next Sunday.

Increase Your Bible IQ

You leave church one Sunday thinking about the Bible, which your pastor said is a guide in all of life. If that’s true, you wonder: Is my dress too revealing for a Christian woman? Can the Bible help me set limits for my teenage daughter? What about my sister who is having trouble with her out-of-control son? Does the Bible say anything about her approach to raising him?

A Prayer Life

Life can be hectic, challenging, hurried and sometimes overwhelming. There’s one certain path to peace: Prayer. It’s the vital heart of your relationship with God. You need to talk to God and He wants to listen and answer. Find a quiet refuge and spend time opening your heart to God. In prayer, you will be standing at the King’s throne to praise, worship and petition. Four women writers offer insights into prayer. Why should you pray? How can you get started?

Mary in a Martha World

Most of us are like one or the other of two sisters—Martha and Mary. Martha thought the way to fulfillment was serving a perfect Julia Child meal in a spotless house decorated by a trendy designer.

All Mary wants to do is live well, love well and be loved by her Lord. Who are you?
