Despite the fact that Christianity is subjected to a lot of ridicule and criticism, it is the only religion that makes sense, and the only one which gives a believer hope; For we serve a risen and living Savior:
Matthew 28:1-6 Now after the Sabbath, as the first day of the week began to dawn, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary came to see the tomb. And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven, and came and rolled back the stone from the door, and sat on it. His countenance was like lightning, and his clothes as white as snow. And the guards shook for fear of him, and became like dead men. But the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. He is not here; for He is risen, as He said. Come, see the place where the Lord lay.
This historic and wonderful event is also recorded in Mark 16:1-14, Luke 24:1-12, and John 20: 1-18. My favorite verse from all of these is verse 5 of Luke chapter 24, for it says ” … why do you seek the living among the dead?”
And yes, God in His Holy Word God mentions that He is the only God: Isaiah 44:6-8 Thus says the Lord, the King of Israel, and his Redeemer, the Lord of hosts: I am the First and I am the Last; Besides Me there is no God.
God also mentions that other gods are the work of men’s hands: Deuteronomy 4:28 And there you will serve gods, the work of men’s hands, wood and stone, which neither see, nor hear, nor eat, nor smell. He adds in verse 39 of the same chapter- Therefore know this day and consider it in your heart, that the Lord himself is God in heaven above, and on the earth beneath, there is no other.
Because he is a risen and living Savior, Christians all over the world can claim the promise, one among many, in Revelation 22:3-4 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. They shall see His face, and His name shall be on their foreheads. Revelation 22:12-13 And behold I am coming quickly, and My reward is with Me, to give to every one according to his work. I am the Alpha and the Omega, the Beginning and the End, the First and the Last.
Jesus died, He arose, and He lives! Hebrews 1:3 Who being the brightness of His glory, and the express image of His person, and upholding all things by the word of His power, when He had by Himself purged our sins, sat down at the right hand of the Majesty on high, having become so much better than the angels, as He has by inheritance obtained a more excellent name than they.
