Daniel's Den

God’s Not Dead . . .
Have you heard the good news? God’s not dead! We of the church would never doubt that for one second, but several years ago a few liberal philosophers tried to sell the public on the absurd idea that there was a God, He did some great things, but sadly, He is now dead. This ludicrous idea didn’t get very far, but for a little while they got some publicity with their persuasive rhetoric. In some ways, what man may have meant for harm, God meant it for good. This movement caused many to question if they truly believed that God is either dead or alive and many came to the conclusion that HE IS ALIVE!

Easter is the greatest proof that God is not dead. A dead God can not have the ability to raise the dead. Jesus died on the cross, but God is the one who brought Him back to life. Our salvation hinges on this fact; “That if you confess with your mouth, ‘Jesus is Lord,’ and believe in your heart that God raised Him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 6:9)

Someone asked the great black preacher, S. M. Lockridge what he thought about the “God is dead” movement. Lockridge said, “It ain’t so. God ain’t dead - because I’m a member of the family, and I would have been notified. There are many other clear evidences that God is alive and well. I know personally that He is alive because, for one thing, I talked to Him this very morning!”

Being convinced that God is alive may not have taken much persuasion, but living like He is alive can be more of a challenge. Living a life of faith not only requires a belief that God is alive, but that He is with us and very much still in control. Whatever may be going on in your life, just remember, “A God who is alive and can bring Jesus back to life, can certainly handle my problems. A God who can roll a stone away, can roll away my stony heart and give me a new lease on life.”

As we approach Easter, may we now prepare our hearts to be renewed in Christ as we celebrate His resurrection and our salvation He provided. A simple way to do that is to be thankful we serve a living God. Make an intentional effort to tell someone about the living God you serve and love. The more convinced you are of God being alive, the more you will want to share Him with others. Someone needs to know this truth; who will you tell?

See you Sunday, because God is alive.
Blessings,
Pastor Daniel
