Assurance in the Resurrection

“Being then God's offspring, we ought not to think that the divine being is like gold or silver or stone, an image formed by the art and imagination of man. The times of ignorance God overlooked, but now he commands all people everywhere to repent, because he has fixed a day on which he will judge the world in righteousness by a man whom he has appointed; and of this he has given assurance to all by raising him from the dead.” (Acts 17:29-31)

“Men are to “repent”. Of what? Idolatry. If men set anything above God as the object of their time, thought, energy, or life, they are worshiping the work of their hands and are thereby degrading God and themselves. They must repent because judgment is coming!” (R. Kent Hughes)

Our hope is in the risen Christ. The power that formed our earth and breathed the stars into existence is the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead. Our powerful God came as man to do what we never could: live a spotless and perfect life that honors Him. Let us rest in the hope that the resurrection offers. But, we must repent. We must turn from our sin and run to the foot of the cross. ONLY here, at the feet of Jesus, can we be forgiven and made right to our creator, God! (John 14:6) When idols present themselves, turn and run. Run to the cross. The world has nothing good to offer apart from Him. (Psalm 16:2) He is risen! Believe it. Repent. And live.

Jesus said to him, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” (John 14:6)

“I say to the Lord, “You are my Lord; I have no good apart from you.”” (Psalm 16:2)

“The time is fulfilled, and the kingdom of God is at hand; repent and believe in the gospel.” (Mark 1:15)

“because, if you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” (Romans 10:9)

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God,” (Ephesians 2:8)

In Him,
