I serve a risen Saviour,
I recently came into contact with someone who doesn’t believe in the diety of Jesus Christ, and questioned my beliefs. I don’t always know how to answer these people. I have never been one to delve into all the archeological, historical findings about my Lord in order to give me faith.
For some reason that I do not understand, I have always had the assurance that not only did Jesus live long ago, but He lives today. The Lord reminded me of this hymn the other day, and it puts into words why I have that assurance: “You ask me how I know He lives: He lives within my heart!”
Facts are nice, but in our humanity we see what we want to see from facts. There is always a book somewhere telling one what they want to hear – and it may be the complete opposite of what another writing says. So how do I know Jesus is God, and is alive today? Because “He walks with me and talks with me!” “I see His hand of mercy, I hear His voice of cheer!” “And just the time I need Him, He’s ALWAYS near!”
I pray that on this Resurrection Day Jesus will be more real to you than any human being in your life. I pray that the joy of His salvation is yours!
God bless your day!
