The difference grace will make for you.... Grace.. It's a word we all love to hear. But do we all know what it means? Without it, our lives are dry and dusty. But when grace comes, it transforms our lives into something rich and beautiful. With remarkable insight gleaned from his own life, Pastor Chuck Smith unfolds the mystery of grace and reveals the surprising truth: We can never grow in grace by our own efforts. True grace flows from the heart of the Father through the love of Jesus Christ. To know that God is for you, that He loves you, is the greatest source of security you will ever know. That is grace-and that is what makes life worth living.
"The full benefits of God's love cannot be manifested in your life if you're not keeping yourself in the love of God. You may know about God's love from a distance, but only when you live in harmony with the love of God will you begin to experience abundant richness and fullness of that love.
Psalm 16:11 reads, "In Your presence is fullness of joy." On the contrary, with the loss of the consciousness of God's presence comes the loss of joy in your life. If you've lost joy in your life and you're wondering if God has left you, I'm here to say God loves you just as you are. The answer may be that it's you who has turned away."

Did Jesus of Nazareth really rise from the dead?
Of the many world religions, only one claims that its founder returned from the grave. The resurrection of Jesus Christ is the very cornerstone of Christianity.
But a dead man coming back to life? In our sophisticated age, when myth has given way to science, who can take such a claim seriously? Some argue that Jesus never died on the cross. Conflicting accounts make the empty tomb seem suspect. And post-crucifixion sightings of Jesus have been explained in psychological terms.
How credible is the evidence for—and against—the resurrection? Focusing his award-winning skills as a legal journalist on history’s most compelling enigma, Lee Strobel retraces the startling findings that led him from atheism to belief. Drawing on expert testimony first shared in his blockbuster book The Case for Christ, Strobel examines:
The Medical Evidence—Was Jesus’ death a sham and his resurrection a hoax?
The Evidence of the Missing Body—Was Jesus’ body really absent from his tomb?
The Evidence of Appearances—Was Jesus seen alive after his death on the cross?
Written in a hard-hitting journalistic style, The Case for Easter probes the core issues of the resurrection. Jesus Christ, risen from the dead: superstitious myth or life-changing reality? The evidence is in. The verdict is up to you.
