Have a Blessed Easter

Now if Christ be preached that he rose from the dead, how say some among you that there is no resurrection of the dead?  But if there be no resurrection of the dead, then is Christ not risen: And if Christ be not risen, then our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.

Yea, and we are found false witnesses of God; because we have testified of God that he raised up Christ: whom he raised not up, if so be that the dead rise not.

And if Christ be not raised, your faith is vain; ye are yet in your sins.  Then they also which are fallen asleep in Christ are perished.  If in the this life only we have hope in Christ, we are of all men most miserable. I Corinthians 15:12-19

Your Best Life Later

Joel Osteen has an extremely popular book called “Your Best Life Now.” 

But what about the next life after this life? 

When it comes to our eternal souls and the next life, Joel bombed a huge opportunity on the Larry King Live show to share the Truth and the good news of Jesus Christ with all those viewers!!!  Amazingly, Joel Olsteen, pastor of America’s largest evangelical Christian congregation, seemed downright afraid to speak the truth!  (“But keep buying my books & keep those tithes, gifts, and offerings coming!”

The Apostle Paul declared: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to every one that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek.” –Romans 1:16  

If you don’t know Jesus Christ as your personal Lord and Saviour my friend, whether Atheist, Hindu, Muslim, Jew or whatever, the Word of God is crystal clear on the issue: 

“Neither is there any salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved.” –Acts 4:12

You and I my friend, are both one day closer to kicking the bucket than we were yesterday.  Certainly, this life is important and we should try to make the most of it, but your life will be only wasted if you are not prepared for the all-important life hereafter. 

His Grace is Amazing

 Sometimes it is difficult to find proper perspective in life.  But every once in a while I’ll go outside and gaze at the stars.  Have you ever done that?  It’s a great way to readjust your perspective.  And as I stare out into the vast creation, I begin to wonder why God loves us?  Why does He even bother?  

In many ways, this world and this life are insignificant.  But when I look at this crazy old world, I’m so thankful for His Word, that I know Him, and that He has saved me. 

God’s grace is truly amazing.

If God is a God of Love…

First, “Why is there a Hell?” and second, “Why does evil happen?” (Probably the two most frequent questions.)

I suggest that God would not be a God of love without Hell. What kind of a loving god would allow the evil and the injustice in this world go unpunished? That wouldn’t be a loving god. But God loves us so much that He has created a very terrible, inescapable place to punish evil and injustice—FOREVER. 

And why does evil happen? Because evil is a mirror that shows us ourselves. It shows us who we really are. It shows us that we need God and the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Each of us is lost in our sinful nature. “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us,” (Romans 5:8 NKJ). God loves us enough to provide a way to be redeemed from our sinful natures through Jesus Christ. “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life,” (John 3:16 NKJ).

When tragedy strikes, remember that God loves each of us deeply. He loves us enough to avenge evil. And He loves us enough to free us from the same sinful natures that make us capable of evil. God is love. And in Him we find hope.
