Give Me One Good Reason I Ought to Go to Church

“Why do I need to belong to a church? Why shouldn’t I just believe in Jesus and live a good life? Church can be a real pain, you know.”

Yes, church can be a real pain. All human relationships can be. Jesus’ command that we “love one another” (John 13:34-35) would not be much of a command if there were no good reasons not to love another. When we love one another in spite of how unlovable we are at times, we are loving others the way Jesus loves us. He loves us even though we are sinners, even though we betray his love.

The Messianic Secret

The Messianic Secret

Have you ever wondered why Jesus never preached Jesus? He went about doing good, the Bible tells us. He healed the sick and cast out demons and taught large crowds around the countryside and smaller groups in the synagogues. But he carefully avoided declaring that he was the Messiah. In fact, he went out of his way to keep his identity as Messiah a secret.

A man with leprosy came to him and begged him on his knees, If you are willing, you can make me clean.

Abraham - The Real Story, video message

As a boy I heard the story of Abraham recounted at least once a week, and it usually went something like this: “God told Abraham to go, and he went. He didn’t ask questions; he didn’t hesitate; he just packed up and left everything he knew—country, family—and went. That’s how all of us should obey God. When God says ‘jump,’ you don’t ask ‘how high?’ – you just jump.”

Finding Meaning in Tragedy

Scripture tells us that God can be trusted to take good care of those who put their faith in him. But the Bible makes no bones about the fact that it takes faith, because the actual path of human life, even for the faithful, as we know so well, is regularly filled with trouble, trial and pain.

Trusting God With the Problem of Sin

“OK, I understand that the blood of Christ covers all sin. And I understand that there is nothing I can add to the equation. But here’s my question: If God, for Christ’s sake, has completely forgiven me for all my sins, past, present and future, then what is to stop me from just going out and sinning all I want? I mean, is the law meaningless for Christians? Does God now condone sin? Doesn’t he want me to stop sinning?”

These questions are important. Let’s go through them one at a time, and see if any more crop up along the way.

Where Was God?

If God loves people, why does he wipe them out? We can’t help but ask that after a disaster such as the devastating earthquake and tsunami that hit northern Japan. What kind of God would kill so many thousands of people and ruin the lives of millions of others in a single stroke?

Lazarus and the Rich Man: A Tale of Unbelief

Have you ever heard that God is incapable of reaching those who do not become believers before they die? It’s a cruel and destructive doctrine, and its so-called “proof” is a single verse in the parable known as Lazarus and the Rich Man. But like all of Scripture, the parable of Lazarus and the Rich Man falls within a particular context and needs to be understood in that context.

Insights Into Solitude

A sheep and its shepherdA personal walk through the 23rd Psalm offers reflection into a Christian's need to take time to be alone with God.

Psalm 23, one of the most beloved passages of Scripture, begins with the simple truth and assurance, The Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. (New Revised Standard Version throughout) What could be more comforting than to know that our spiritual provision and safety depend not on who we are, but on who God is?
