Re:Verse passage – I Corinthians 15:3-20, 35-44, 50-57 (day four)
Verses 3-4 have sometimes been referred to as the Easter passage. “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.” This short, concise passage accurately sums up the work of Christ.
I like the phrase “according to the Scriptures.” Jesus had an assignment and He completed it obediently. Why would He do that? Why would He willingly die such a horrible death, for us? It was for love! Love for the Father and love for us. Do we have any responsibility as a result of Jesus demonstrating His love toward us? Should we be asking ourselves anything for such a sacrifice? With that level of love demonstrated for us, we owe Him…at the very least…to ask what He would have us to do.
- Who is Jesus?
- Why did He come?
- What does He want me to do?
