The Resurrection of Jesus Christ is the final and greatest part of the Gospel; Good News! We serve THE Living God. The Resurrection is a Historical Fact. We can be thankful that is not an opinion, nor up for discussion. Celebrate the Risen Savior!
What distinguishes Christianity from cults is the Jesus Christ of the Bible. John warns us in 1 John 4:2-3 1Jo 4:2 NIV - This is how you can recognize the Spirit of God: Every spirit that acknowledges that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, 1Jo 4:3 NIV - but every spirit that does not acknowledge Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you have heard is coming and even now is already in the world. Since Jesus claims to be The Way, The Truth, The Life, (John 14:6) it’s easy to identify a cult; Anything But, Jesus Christ Alone. Really Simple, Really Obvious.
Ever heard the term, “Cross to Bear”? That does not mean to simply suffer. Only a Christian can bear a cross when they suffer for obeying Jesus. Matthew chapter 10 tells us that God has chosen us, given us authority to share the Gospel and knows us by name. Are you willing to follow Jesus all the more?
