The other day I was teasing my husband for making (pregnant) me wait an extra hour to eat so that he could join me for lunch. In my most know-it-all voice, I “informed” him that I should be eating every 2-3 hours which is 5 small meals a day. He teased me back by saying THAT was a myth. Shocked (and still in character), I protested that my Mom was a Weight-Loss Counselor for several years helping clients lose over a hundred pounds. She taught me all I needed to know about nutrition and maintaining a healthy diet—and I highly doubted this was a myth.
It’s not hard to come across two people with opposing convictions these days. Steven Furtick once said, “We live in a day where it’s so easy to get information, but it’s difficult to get the truth.” And when it comes to your diet practices … there are thousands if not millions of opinions out there. Still … I’m bewildered at how one can spend so much of their lives oblivious to the one truth we have. Some people in fact, never find it. I’m so thankful that we serve a God that was the same yesterday as He is today and will be tomorrow. Christ IS the embodiment of truth. And THAT is not a myth.
That’s exactly what Carter Conlon calls us to do in his Easter message, The Risen Church. He gives very practical examples of what it means to live a “risen” life.
