Daily Reading: 2 Samuel 20:14-21:22 ESV, Acts 1:1-26 ESV, Psalm 121:1-8 ESV, Proverbs 16:18 ESV

Daily Verse: “He presented himself alive to them after his suffering by many proofs, appearing to them during forty days and speaking about the kingdom of God.” (Acts 1:3 ESV)

TEKMERION (5039): “Denotes that from which something is surely and plainly known; indubitable evidence, a proof.”[i]

Plainly known.

After Jesus’ resurrection, He spent 40 days appearing and speaking about God’s kingdom.  Over 500 witnesses testified to the truth of Jesus.  In other words, people plainly knew Jesus died and came back to life three days later, overcoming death.

My favorite salvation stories come from those who tried to disprove Jesus’ existence.  Lee Strobel, a hard-hitting legal journalist for the Chicago Tribune, didn’t believe in God, setting out to discredit Jesus.  In his book, “The Case for Christ,” [i] Strobel interviewed top experts in science, philosophy, and history, proving Jesus’ existence.

Facts don’t change.

With over five million copies of Strobel’s book sold, the questions he addressed get to the heart of the matter:

  • How reliable is the New Testament?
  • Is Jesus who he said he was?
  • What does all the evidence point to-and what does it mean today?

In a nutshell, yes, Jesus existed.  The New Testament’s reliability leads us to God’s kingdom.  Today, you can have new life in Christ by placing your faith in Him.  Learning about Jesus will change your life one day at a time.

For decades I have read the Bible daily, and it has changed my life in ways I never anticipated.  God drew me into His family from the pit of unemployment and loneliness.  Each day, as I practice the teachings of scripture, my life blossoms.  Even in my darkest days, I know God’s beside me, carrying me.

Proof exists about Jesus.  If you doubt, start investigating.  Ask questions, and share your uncertainties.  God doesn’t balk at your queries; He understands them.  After all, Jesus came in the flesh so we can have a relationship with our Creator.  Seek, and you will find Jesus waiting with open arms.
