Safety is only found in the Lord Jesus. Here is why you ought to believe he is the one and only Son of God. He was
taken by cruel hands and crucified; a soldier stuck a spear deep into his side. He was buried in a tomb hewn out of
rock. Roman soldiers rolled a rock over the tomb to enclose it, then sealed it, and then set a watch over it of
sixteen soldiers to make sure no one would tamper with it. For the remainder of that Friday, the following Saturday,
and then the early part of Sunday morning his body lay in the grave. Then early Sunday he arose from the grave in a
resurrected body. The rock was rolled aside and angels sat where his body was once laid. He appeared to his disciples
many times over the next forty days, one time even eating fish and honeycomb with them. One of his disciples even
thrust his hand in the spear wound in his side. The resurrection of the Lord Jesus from the grave is a great proof
that he is the Son of God. As it says in Romans chapter one, And declared to be the Son of God with power, according
to the spirit of holiness, by the resurrection from the dead.
The men who witnessed all these things had nothing to gain by giving a false testimony about what they saw. They were
honest, sober minded men and their accounts are written out in the New Testament. One of them named Peter in his
second letter wrote For we have not followed cunningly devised fables, when we made known unto you the power and
coming of our Lord Jesus Christ, but were eyewitnesses of his majesty.
Make no mistake about it. It was God who created the world, and it was God who raised up the Lord Jesus from the
dead. It is also God who calls all men to repentance and faith in his Son so that they might receive the gift of
eternal life. As many as who received him to them gave he the power to become the sons of God. The gospel might have
been around for two thousand years but man with all his increased learning and knowledge needs it as much today as
ever before. What you do with the Lord Jesus will determine where you spend eternity. He that heareth my words and
believeth on him that sent me hath everlasting life and shall not come into condemnation.
Will you confess him as your Lord and Savior so that you receive the gift of eternal life? Or will you reject the
message and come into condemnation? You alone must decide whether or not to accept Christ. And you alone must bear the
consequence of your decision. There is a real hell waiting for those who reject the Lord Jesus while there is heaven
and eternal life for all those who truly believe he is the Son of God. That the riptides of unbelief are running
through this world shouldnt surprise anyone. This is the same world that cast out the Son of God after he had
accomplished such incredible works of power and love, and nailed him to a cross. It is our prayer that you escape the
dangerous riptides of unbelief and find joy and safety in trusting in the Risen Christ as Lord and Savior.
