resurrection true or false

at His feetI realize Easter isn’t about Jesus to many in the world. I know most of my life – even if I happened to go to church, I didn’t really believe. One day I took a step of faith to say, “I want to believe – I want to understand – help me.”

No dramatic change as some have but I began to see and understand the journey of Jesus. His great patience AND love…even with our messy lives. I started to understand that with Him – I am worth dying for.

Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. John 15:13

Would you give your life for your family – your friends?

He did.

If there is no resurrection of the dead, then not even Christ has been raised. And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith. 1 Corinthians 15:13-14

He’s shown me it isn’t useless and I KNOW my life has changed by taking that step. I hope that even if you have doubt, you will ask Jesus to show you just how much He really loves you.

  1. Would I give my life for my family and friends…very good and challenging question! I pray the Lord will transform me and purify me (taking out selfishness and fear), so that my answer can by YES!
    Thank you for this 🙂

    1. I’ve heard that question a few times so have thought about it. So often I would say for this person Yes, for that person No….not how He did it though. Yes…transform us more Lord!

  2. His love is beyond ANYTHING that we could possibly imagine. I don’t know if I’d have the strength to give up one of my children for the sake of the world. He did. Blessings, Judi!

    1. A mystery to us but God knew what the master plan before the foundations of the earth. That is another thought though…like Isaac. I was thinking giving of self vs child – definitely a different perspective that would be tougher. Grace and Peace to you Guy.
