Overview

Christianity is not religion - it is life. Specifically, it is the life of Jesus Christ given to the soul of man. It is not a collection of beliefs, although knowing His life will cause us to see and walk in the truth. It is not a kind of behavior, although abiding in His life will affect all that we desire and do. Christianity, at its very root and in every branch, is bound up with a very specific life that God gives, reveals, and forms in the soul of man. Christianity is Christ living in you.
The question that confronts us as believers is whether we are satisfied with a small and blurry view of God's incredible gift, or whether we, like Paul, will count all things loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Jesus Christ our Lord. There are many who have accepted the gift of life in Christ and yet, like the children of Israel, seem content to wander in the wilderness of man's religious ideas with both their treasure and their heart wrapped up in things of this world. There are others, however, whose hearts have grown restless within them, and whose constant prayer has become, "Lord, there must be something more than this!" Indeed there is more. But to know and experience the greatness of His life, the soul must be carried on by the Spirit of God to an ever greater view of the cross of Jesus Christ.
