God of Creation, God of the Resurrection

On Resurrection Sunday, commonly called Easter, most professing Christians celebrate the fact that Jesus was bodily raised from the dead. Jesus is God the Son who took the form of a man so he could die for the sins of his people (Phil. 2:8). He is also the Creator (Col. 1:16, John 1:-13) and the only true God.

God the Son took the form of the man Jesus. He is also the Creator, and his Resurrection shows us that he is the one true God.

We can be certain of the truth that Jesus rose from the dead not only because God's written Word tells us so, but there is abundant evidence for this fact. People know there is a God (Rom. 1:18-23), but do not want the real one. They seek other false gods that are nothing more than idols or distractions.
People are bowing down to many gods today, just as they did in the ancient pagan world. It was these idolaters to whom Paul proclaimed, "that there is none other God but one. For though there be that are called gods, whether in heaven or in earth (as there be gods many, and lords many). But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in Him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by Him" (I Corinthians 8:4-6).
