  • 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).”

  • When do we most often cry out to God?
    Usually it is in time of great need or distress. It often happens when we have had a personal loss, financial loss or perhaps a death or illness.
    Belief in God during hard times is a normal human attribute. I inherently believe even atheists, deep down, realize this whole thing isn’t one big mistake and that God does exist.
    It is certainly fine to call out to God when we are in distress, but how important is it for us to do the same during good times, too?
