Imagine if someone from biblical times were able to travel to our time and see all that we experience on a typical day. The technological changes would no doubt overwhelm them, but what would they think about faith among people, especially those who claim to be disciples of Christ. Would thy be inspired by our faith..., or disappointed? Mark goes through a fictional scenario of what this would look like in relation to the South Bay Church.

Some people believe that faith is specific to the individual and that organized religion is unnecessary. Jesus did preach individual relationships with God, but also in the context of the church being a body. We are all connected and need each other to survive spiritually. For those that try to "go it alone", Satan is just waiting to pick them off because they don't have the support and structure that is needed. God always planned for the church to be a family and support each other on our path to Heaven.

Many think that love is something that just happens; a feeling that comes over us. While it may start this way, true love is a decision. God's love for us is unconditional, yet we can often put conditions on the love we have for Him, and other people as well. 1 Corinthians 13 provides the truest definition of how we should all love, in every area of our lives.

God created all of us for a purpose. None of were accidents that were not meant to happen. He has a specific plan for all of us and wants to see that plan fulfilled in our lives. We were created just below him and the angels, so we need to use that purpose and bring God glory through fulfilling the glory he has planned for us.

There are numerous different religions in this world; many of them saying very different things when it comes to salvation. Not all of them can be right. Christianity is the only religion where God came to earth and showed his people how to live.

We all know that our days on this earth are numbered. The real challenge is that we can never know how many days we actually have. Eventually, when we are called to Heaven, we must account for how we lived. Will God say to us, "Well done, good and faith servant"?

We all want to be chosen in life. God provides the best course to be truly chosen for something special. With God, it is not an easy option though. He only chooses those that are willing to completely follow his specific criteria for what it means chosen. For those that are willing to follow his commands, he provides true rejuvention.
