Many times, when you ask someone how they are, they’ll answer, “I’m so busy!” And it’s true. Most of us live incredibly fast paced lives, with every moment scheduled into a jam-packed calendar. Sometimes, in the midst of the insanity, we can start to feel like our lives are filled with obligations we have to do instead of privileges that we get to do.

There are 7.4 billion people on the planet today. With so many people and possibilities, you would think two people finding and making a relationship work would be easier. So why is it so hard? We ask a lot of questions: How do I find the right person? Is dating just a game? Should we live together? How do we know when to take the next step? Aren’t soulmates supposed to never fight?
But what if we’re asking the wrong questions? Maybe the more important question is not how to find the right person, but how to become the right person.
In our series, It’s A Match! My So-Called Love Life, we hope to gain proven wisdom to make our relationships not just work, but thrive.
At its core, Easter is a celebration of finding life where there was once death. It’s a celebration of Jesus’ resurrection; His victory over death points us to real hope. His physical resurrection makes our spiritual resurrection possible. When we die to ourselves, we find life. When we embrace Jesus’ resurrection fully, we find ourselves alive.
We do all sorts of activities throughout our days. Some are just based on pure, physical survival – making a peanut butter and jelly sandwich to feed yourself, going to the gym, making sure we drink enough water. You know, the basics.
But there are some physical actions that create a spiritual climate in our lives. The act of doing them has benefits beyond the physical, beyond what meets the eye.
In our series, Spiritual Acts and Why We Do Them, we’ll be taking a look at worship, baptism and communion, and how these spiritual acts connect us to God and open us up to the life change He offers.
