Although we should celebrate Christ’s resurrection from the grave each and every day in our hearts, next Sunday we celebrate it throughout the entire world as Easter. Truly our God, the risen Lord Jesus Christ, is an awesome God in every way. He spoke and our very world and existence came into being.
Don’t be taken in by the “All roads lead to Rome” theory that is so popular today. In the past few months I have heard many times and from many sources that all people who worship a “god” ….no matter what name they give to him….are all in fact worshiping the same deity. This is so not true. I read “somewhere” just this week…but I can not remember where…a statement that said, “If you don’t have God, then any god will do.” What they meant was, if you don’t believe in the true and living God of the Bible, then any god….person, statue, sun, moon, earth, etc….will be perfectly good enough to serve as a god for you!
Out of all of the “gods” ever worshipped, there is only one true God…the One who is living still…the One who by His own power defied death and the grave and who lives today….the One who had no beginning and has no end. I don’t know about you, but as for me…I will trust my life and my future to the Lord Jesus Christ and no one else.
The Bible says in Jeremiah 10: 10 “But the LORD is the true God, he is the living God, and an everlasting king: at his wrath the earth shall tremble, and the nations shall not be able to abide his indignation.”
I have used the word awesome many times in my life to describe our God. Today before starting to write this article, I decided to look up that word awesome in the dictionary. Here is what I found Awesome: fullof or inspiring awe..... Awe: A feeling of mingled dread, reverence, and wonder. After reading it’s meaning I was amazed at how accurately it describes our God.
Reverence…”let all the inhabitants of the world stand in awe of him.”
And wonder… “For he spake, and it was done; he commanded, and it stood fast.”
God does awesome things in my life every day. The miracle of life itself is awesome. Just ask the parents of a newborn baby. The blessing of seeing, hearing, and speaking is awesome. Just ask the blind, the deaf, or the dumb man. The privilege to live in the United States of America where we are free to worship as we please is awesome. Just ask the persecuted Christian in Pakistan, Vietnam, or China. The gift of eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ is totally awesome. Just read the account of one who didn’t accept this gift of eternal life and woke up in hell…”the rich man also died, and was buried; And in hell he lift up his eyes, being in torments,” Luke 16: 22-23
The power that brought Jesus out of the grave is beyond any power we can think of or imagine. He is indeed the Lord of Lords and King of Kings and should be worshipped as such.
