We want to continue in the theme of belief from our Easter Sunday post; for the next steps are critical in relating to the Christ we just celebrated as our risen Lord.
We go further with this thought:
“Believing in him is not the same as believing things about him such as that He was born of a virgin and raised Lazarus from the dead. Instead, it is a matter of giving our hearts to him, of come hell or high water putting our money on him, the way a child believes in a mother or a father, the way a mother or a father believes in a child.”
Sunday we talked about believing in the resurrection and the bursting forth from the tomb. Those are facts about Christ that we choose to believe.
Mr. Beuchner is asking us if we believe in Him. Was he some mystical man that pulled off a few miracles including his own bursting forth, or is He the real deal?
Is Christ the Son of God/Son of Man all merged into one? Is He the promised messiah, the Redeemer of the world? Is He the Savior of the world?
Your answers to these questions become the heart of the matter after all.

It really does come down to belief.
