THE STORY OF JESUS: Acts 25:23-26:8
“Why is it thought incredible by any of you that God raises the dead?” (Acts 25:25)
This is my question as well… and why I can believe in the resurrection.
If a person believes in an all powerful being, raising to life is not an issue.
A God that can create the world and life, can also restore life.
This is how I feel about all of the ‘miracles’ of the bible.
It is not the miracles that convince me of Jesus, but Jesus’s life and message.
What He says, what He does, how He lives, how He lives – these are divine!
History is filled with beliefs and messiahs that sent people to their death.
But Jesus Himself lives and loves all people, and willingly dies for this.
If God is going to raise anyone back to life, I’d want it to be Jesus.
In fact, we need more people like Jesus raised to life – not just religious people.
Our world needs humble loving servants, if we are to experience paradise again.
The real issue for me isn’t resurrection but restoration.
A true miracle is seeing people join Jesus in living and loving like Him!
It is my hope in restoration of love, joy and peace that has me following Jesus!
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, if You are not alive and true then nothing really matters… we are all doomed. You lived a life worth resurrecting. Help me to do the same!
