The Truth

Re: Verse reading–1 Corinthians 15:3-20, 35-44, 50-57 (day four)
Paul acknowledges that the words he has written, were given to him (by the Holy Spirit).  In verse 3, he says “I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received.”  Verses 3 and 4 are sometimes called the Easter verse…”that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures,”  These are great verses to memorize…you can deliver the good news in one concise passage!  Paul says if this message weren’t true, we should be greatly pitied.  But it is true!  Christ did die, and was buried, and rose from the grave.  How can our lives not be changed?  Christ gave His life for us.  Out of His great love for us, He gave His life that we could have forgiveness of our sin.  He paid the price for my sin.  My life is His.  The world refuses to acknowledge His death and resurrection…to do so, would require a response from them.  Tell them the truth!
