He Has Risen Indeed!
The idea of a risen savior can be difficult for many. I mean who can boast to be tortured, beaten and killed, only to rise 3 days later...only Jesus can! For those of us that are believers, Jesus raising from the dead is the foundation of our faith. Without the risen Christ, there is no Christianity and life after death. Of all my years of living I don't remember a time not believing Jesus died on the cross for me; it was threaded in me my whole life. There were times in my life where I was angry with GOD, didn't want to talk to him, or blatantly ignored Him but NEVER had I not believe in his risen Son. Why? Faith. We all have it. Whether we acknowledge it as such, we all have faith. What we put our faith in, is what may differ. There are just some things in this world that just requires faith. They are inexplicable, unfathomable, beyond what a mere human is capable of. For me, there is freedom in a Savior who has redeemed me from all my sins. In everything I do, I know if I put my faith in Him he will direct me to the amazing life he wants me to live. There was a time in my life where I felt forced to share about Christ but now I share about him on my own terms. I share about all that He's done for me not for a hidden purpose but because I am in awe, I am grateful and because I feel that if he would help me, he will help anyone. He helps merely because He loves us. I still don't get why but am thankful it is so! The Cross= Love. Inexplicable love!
Thank GOD He has risen Indeed!!
