Let’s roll back history

20140418-084038.jpg

Imagine the headlines of the day some 2,000 years ago.

The headlines read:

Was he or wasn’t he? Prophet? Rabbi? Messiah? Revolutionary?

Regardless of your opinion, something happened 3 days later that has us talking about it even today.

Was his body stolen? Did he awaken from a stupor? Or was he the divine Son of God resurrected from the dead?

His disciples were asking the same questions about now as they scattered and hunkered down in fear for their lives. Their leader was dead. Or, so they thought.

Many will die for what they believe. But no one will die for a lie. Something happened to that little band of brothers that changed history that Sunday morning. They encountered the truth. It was no lie. It wasn’t a Sunday School story for them. They had lived with him, dined with him and nearly died with him. But now, they would live with him as the reality of who he really was sunk in.

Who do you say he is? No man can convince, coerce or convert you. Like his disciples, he will draw you unto himself.

He will reveal himself to you and like Peter he will ask, “Who do you say that I am?”

Peter replied, “You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God.”

Jesus replied, “You are blessed, Simon son of John, because my Father in heaven has revealed this to you. You did not learn this from any human being.”

The question remains now some 2,000 years later. Who was this leader? Did his followers knowingly die for a lie?

Something radical happened to bring them out of hiding. Surely they could no longer deny or doubt, he was alive. That conviction, that reality, changed the course of history as still today we consider, who was this man?

Was he divine? Was he the son of God?

If so, how might his life impact mine?

Listen and watch for him in coming days and don’t be surprised if he doesn’t reveal himself to you in amazing ways!
