Living, Risen, Savior

1John 4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son to be Savior of the world.

Luke 1:47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in my God my Savior.

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

That name is Jesus!

No other name!

Do you believe what He did was true? Some scholars estimate that there are about 30 surviving independent (from God’s word) sources written by 25 authors who attest to Jesus. Jewish book of Josephus, though separate from the Bible, also attest to the history of Jesus as well. History has made note of his existence even though He only lived between 33 and 39 years when He died, the Bible does not give an exact age. Jesus’ earthly life was relatively short but His influence was long-lasting. We only know that His ministry started when He was 30 years old and only lasted approximately 3 1/2 years. For someone who only lived a brief amount of time, what He accomplished in those few years goes down in history. Jesus is the only true living God and Savior!

John 3:16 “God so loved the people of this world, that He gave His only begotten Son, whosoever believes in Him shall not perish, but shall have everlasting life!” Like the song says:

I love to tell the story,

of unseen things above-

of Jesus and His Glory,

of Jesus and His love;

I love to tell the story, because I know ’tis true,

it satisfies my longings as nothing else would do.

I love to tell the story,

’twill be my theme in Glory,

to tell the old, old story, of Jesus and His love.

I love to tell the story, more wonderful it seems

Than all the golden fancies of all our golden dreams;

I love to tell the story, it did so much for me,

And that is just the reason I tell it now to thee.

I love to tell the story, ’tis pleasant to repeat,

What seems each time I tell it more wonderfully sweet;

I love to tell the story , for some have never heard

The message of salvation from God’s own Holy Word.

I love to tell the story, for those who know it best,

Seem hungering and thirsting to hear it like the rest;

And when in scenes of Glory I sing the new, new song,

‘Twill be the old, old story that I have loved so long.

I had a personal encounter with the true living, risen, savior! That is a testimony that I love to repeat, and share with others, so that you may know how very much He loves you! He has given everyone a story, a personal encounter. Ask him to come into your life, to forgive you of all sin, guilt and shame, to become Lord of your life so that all things will be new for you! He died on the cross for you and rose again so that all who believe in Him will have everlasting life, along with your own personal story.

Happy Resurrection Day!
