Jesus is the Answer!
“Jesus… was declared with power to be the Son of God by his resurrection from the dead” (Romans 1:4).
Luke 24:1-6 - On the first day of the week, very early in the morning, the women took the spices they had prepared and went to the tomb. 2They found the stone rolled away from the tomb, 3but when they entered, they did not find the body of the Lord Jesus. 4While they were wondering about this, suddenly two men in clothes that gleamed like lightning stood beside them. 5In their fright the women bowed down with their faces to the ground, but the men said to them, “Why do you look for the living among the dead? 6He is not here; he has risen! (NIV)
Other religions have strong ethical systems, concepts about the afterlife, and writings that they consider holy. Only Christianity has a God who became human, who literally died for his people and was raised again in power and glory to rule his church forever. This is why the Resurrection stands as the central fact of Christian history, and on this fact the church is built. Christians can look very different from one another, and they can hold widely varying beliefs about politics, lifestyle, and even theology. But one central belief unites and inspires all true Christians: Jesus Christ rose from the dead!
God proved that Jesus is the Son of God and the answer to life's biggest questions and problems by raising him from the dead. To find His answers to the big questions of life we must receive him, learn from him and live in him daily.
