Jesus did not say, "I have come that you might have religion … that you might have meetings … that you might have a ritual … that you might have doctrine … that you might have this or that ceremony." But He said, "My purpose is to give life in all its fullness."
Jesus says that Christianity is a life. He came to teach people how to live. Until you know Christ, you're not living, you're just existing.
Most people are searching for life; they're looking for it in anything. From one fad to the next, one commercial to the next, that will give me life! They call it other things – happiness, sex appeal, fame, status. But what they're looking for is "What in the world am I here for?" And the church should be the one place in society where people go to figure out how you live. The church ought to teach people how to live because Christianity is a life.
