If we are all members of the local body- "individually members of one another"- what happens when one leaves? Pain. Loss. A hole in the fellowship and the efficacy of the church.

If it's easy to leave; if there is no pain; if nobody misses the family that stopped attending- these are signs that something was already awry in the bond of fellowship.

It should be hard to leave. This doesn't mean that it's never right to leave a church; there are very good and legitimate reasons for doing so. However, leaving a church should be done with the seriousness and formality of amputating a limb- not with the impulsive or emotion-based decisiveness (or indecisiveness) of no longer eating pizza on Friday nights.

I gave a message at church a few weeks back about Biblical principles of physical fitness. Kinda a touchy subject... anyway, you can hear it below. (The title might be a bit misleading- this is not just a message for guys.)

I should listen to this; something I've been challenged on lately.

Isaiah 11 got my chills going this morning... such beautiful promises.

"For the earth will be full of the knowledge of the Lord
As the waters cover the sea."

If you've ever been to a wedding, you probably know the feeling. You can't help but smile, and you can't help but cry. It's so happy that it hurts. There's a deep, aching, longing, bittersweet joy that leaves everyone there inspired and almost depressed (in a happy sort of way). Hearts so light and so heavy all at once.

This feeling of bittersweetness happens at other times through life, though the occasions are rare. A perfectly golden autumn day lit by warm sun through cool, dappled shade. A funeral for a Christian warrior released to glory. The end of a movie where the hero has died and died well. A piece of music that somehow transcends simple audio enjoyment and etches a mark on our soul. A day of fellowship at church where the love and unity is so real that no one wants to leave until long after the daylight has.

What is it, exactly? Why do we get this feeling, and what does it mean?

A few days ago (April 15th) was the anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic; it's an appropriate time to recommend a documentary I was honored to compose for a while back entitled "Act Like Men." The film examined the historical events of the Titanic, the deterioration of manhood in America today, and the Biblical solutions for us as believers in Christ. It's available at http://www.biblicalworldviewmedia.com.

Below is a track from the original score.

Imagine the tears. Friday night. Saturday. Empty days. The heartbroken, heartbreaking moans and sobs. Dead. The Man they had come to love- to be loved by- more than any other. Gone. Buried. Imprisoned in the iron coffin that binds every soul it receives.

They had hoped so much. Seen so much. Years of their lives were spent following this Man, believing His Word. "Where would we go, Lord? You have the words of life!"

And now... now where do they go? How can life ever be worth living again?

Maybe Peter tried to go fishing, one of those dark days. Maybe he looked at his empty nets and, try as he might, could only see them brimful and breaking with the fish summoned by their Maker.

Maybe John tried to comfort Mary... but couldn't convince himself that there was really any comfort to offer.

Did any of them expect it? Did any of them remember the promises of Christ- hear them faintly echoing, but echoing louder and louder as Sunday approached?

Did Pilate sleep soundly- did his washed hands make a washed conscience? Or did he dream of the Man Who had come to testify to the truth?

Did the leaders of Israel post guards to keep the disciples from stealing the body of Christ? Or did they, deep down, know that that was a pretense to try to prevent a greater deliverance?

Did Joseph of Arimathea think that he would go down in history as the man who gave the tomb that held the Messiah? Or did he have the faith to see that the tomb couldn't hold the Messiah?

There was the sting of death. There was the victory of the grave. And they were all burdened and bound under its awful conqueror's rule. Their King, their Hero, had fallen in the battle. All was lost.

Imagine the tears Saturday night.

But imagine the morning.

Oh, imagine the morning.

#HeIsRisen #FillTheEarth 

"Death is swallowed up in victory. O Death, where is your victory? O Death, where is your sting?"

Standing on the promises. Sometimes, it's kneeling on the promises. Sometimes, it's clinging to the promises, trembling, desperately crying out with Jacob "I will not let go until you bless me!"

But whatever the situation, whatever the struggle- oh, how sweet are the promises of God!

Just recently got my hands on a copy of Christian tenor Daniel Craig's album, "The End of Myself." A glorious, God-honoring, deeply edifying listen (with some great background orchestration by my friend and colleague +Benjamin Botkin). Highly recommended, and now available: http://danielcraigtenor.com

Also, as we enter the month of Resurrection Sunday, it's time to remind everyone that if you wish there was such a thing as Easter music- there is. The Rhapsodize Music Network's "Resurrection" is a cinematic re-telling of the passion story; a great album to have playing in the background as you remember and celebrate the death and resurrection of our Savior: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/resurrection-cinematic-easter/id976741803

Ah, Christmastime. A time for joy, eggnog, and controversy.

Last year, my wife and I celebrated our first Christmas as us. Part of being an us meant having to stand- if with all the confidence of Bambi on ice- on our own convictions.

I had seen my parents, and other families, go through it before- Saturnalia, druids, and evergreen idols. This year, though, God brought the issues into razor-sharp focus, as our entire church came face-to-face with this issue.

Is the tree really an idol? Is the Grinch really a reformer waging war on idolatry? Can I get some eggnog with a shot of paganism, please?

It's an emotional topic, because if the answer is "yes," then a lot of fun memories and happy traditions need to be torn down like so many asherim, burned with the yule log, and buried with a sprig of holly through their heart.

But we must be willing for the answer to be "yes," or there is no purpose in asking the question. As with any other question which we take to Scripture, a good first step would be an examining of our own hearts- are we really ready to follow wherever God calls us to go? If we aren't ready to submit to any answer, then why bother seeking an answer at all?

Yes, you have to go to my blog to read the rest.  :-D

For the record, I liked your sprinkling of A Christmas Carol throughout your post. :-)
I enjoyed reading what you had to say and funnily enough, it's almost word for word what my family talked about this year in regards to Christmas because I've been studying the Roman Empire in school and that brought up questions.
Another man made Jewish festival is Chanukah. We celebrate that one but we only light the lights as a reminder of what Christ is for us as Christians.
