While believing in Jesus gives hope, Christianity is not based on hope or blind faith. It's based on evidence. As an eyewitness to many of Jesus' miracles, the apostle John reminds us that the supernatural feats of Jesus are not just random acts of kindness meant to help and inspire people. They are signs that give evidence for who Jesus is.
When we look back at the life of Jesus, it’s very clear that people who were nothing like Jesus, liked Him. And the people who were most different from Him were the ones most drawn to Him. But that doesn’t necessarily seem to be true for the church today. Why is that? And how can we fix it?
Has it ever felt like church is only for church people? Like Sundays are great for people who are already in the club, but for the rest of us there’s just something missing? But when we look at the way the church launched in the first century, nothing could be further from the truth.
The Church is remarkable. And against all odds, it changed the world. There is still a great deal that needs changing. By God’s grace and with your help, perhaps we can be a small part of bringing about that change.
