But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says.

Surgery is no fun, but it can be necessary and crucial. Spiritual surgery is the same: it isn’t enjoyable, but it is rewarding. Let’s analyze our inner motivations, in order that our attitudes might be improved as we serve the Lord.

Good deeds can be seen, but motivations can’t. Why we behave the way we do is a key part of Christ’s teaching in Matthew 6. Are we laboring for the praise of men? Our Lord wants our works to done with Him in mind.

To forego eating for a time has some known health benefits. But for the Christian, fasting has spiritual benefits. But why exactly should we fast, and how should we do it? 
August 24, 2015
Most of us enjoy eating. But there are times in a Christian’s life when eating should be avoided. Do you need to be reminded about Christ’s teaching on the benefits of fasting?
