Psalm 62:8 says it: “So trust Him absolutely, people; lay your lives on the line for Him. God is a safe place to be.”
The Resurrection of Jesus guarantees that for the Christian there’s no such thing as NEVER. No guesswork groove. Hope exists right in the face of human hopelessness . . .
Jesus died. They buried Him. But He’s alive. Those are facts, validated by more eyewitnesses than the fabricated ‘news’ major media foist off on us all and expect us to believe. No. Do your own homework; it’ll mean more when you read it for yourself. Hint: 500. And Jesus wasn’t the only one.
Christian friend, I know it’s tempting. Don’t you dare keep thinking NEVER, NOT HAPPENING, HOPELESS. I don’t care how things look, nor how often people have let you down. God takes guesswork off the table. You can depend on Him.
From The Easter Experience small group study: “If a man walks out of his own grave, then he’s who he says he is–and everything he says has to be true.” Well, yeah. I’d say we’d all have to be doofus-qualified to see men and women all around us, living solid lives in daily relationship with the risen Jesus, and still conclude it’s all a silly fable.
Might that be why Jesus’s name packs so much power? Why folks get enraged the minute His name is mentioned? I think so. When He left the funeral suit draped over the casket and walked out of Joe’s mausoleum, Jesus permanently took the guesswork out of our groove.
You can’t always see what He’s doing. But you can bank on the fact He’s gettin’ it done – in ways you’d never dream possible.
