The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is a pivotal moment in human history. And for those of us who are in Christ, who have our hope because He was resurrected, there are many good things that we can know because our Lord is risen from the dead.
Being a Christian is not something we can do on our own. There is a need to be around other Christians, to have fellowship and be encouraged for the life that we live. It is not only necessary that Christians attend worship, but that we prioritize worship in our lives in order to best serve God.
The resurrection of Jesus Christ is central to what Christians believe. Without it, everything that we do is worthless. Paul, in 1 Corinthians 15, takes the opportunity to answer some who were giving in to the belief that resurrection wasn’t actually possible. Through his writing, he shows both the foolishness, and the consequences of such a belief.
Prayer is so vital to the life of a Christian. It must not be neglected any more than food, water, or sleep should be neglected for physical life. Not only should Christians resolve to pray more, but should resolve to prioritize prayer through praying early, praying often, and praying without ceasing.
On the First Sunday of each month, the Orangeburg Church of Christ hosts an abbreviated worship service, after which we sing for an extended period of time.

This week, we consider a lesson about trust i God from Psalm 4
As we begin a new year, many are making resolutions for the year to come. As we think about things we want to do better, many Christians will resolve to read the Bible more. As we seek to spend more time in God’s word, we ought also seek to gain a deeper knowledge of it, and have a better understanding of it.
As we conclude our walk with kings in the month of December, we will take some time to consider our Savior Jesus Christ, who was “born king of the Jews.”
