  • Have you ever fasted? Please email me if you have and tell me about your experience.
    I know hundreds if not thousands of professing Christians, but only one or two who have ever fasted.
    I have friends in another country that are Christians who fast often.
    Why don’t American Christians? Why don’t churches, families and your local preacher encourage fasting as a part of Christian living?

  • One of the most neglected symbols of the church is the empty tomb.
    With the launch sequence of Christmas already counting down, we are familiarized again with the symbols of: the manger, the shepherds, the wise men, the angels, etc. Then there’s the reason Jesus Christ came into this world: the cross.
    Where would we be without the empty tomb? It is our symbol of victory. I Corinthians 15:16 reminds us: “If Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; you are yet in your sins (KJV).”
