Reflections On Our Life in Jesus Christ

Today’s Bible Reading (from Psalm 35-36; Acts 25
Friday’s: Psalm 37-39; Acts 26         Saturday’s: Psalm 40-42; Acts 27:1-26
Sunday’s: Psalm 43-45; Acts 27:27-44         Monday’s: Psalm 46-48; Acts 28

We’re hardwired to resist the idea of someone returning to life and Lal Bihari is living proof, literally.  In 1975, he applied for a bank loan in India, but was denied because the government had him listed as “legally dead.”  Bihari spent the next 19 years fighting Indian bureaucracy to prove that he was indeed alive.  One report on his life listed “1955-1975, 1994-” following his name.  After his great challenge to prove he was not dead, Bihari discovered he wasn’t alone, so he created the Association of Dead People to help others with the same issue.[1]

Christianity doesn’t deny that it’s difficult to believe a dead man came back to life, but that’s just the point.  It’s a miraculous event that could only be pulled off by God Himself!
