For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received, 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… I Corinthians 15:3ff
What is the story and significance of Jesus life and message? Well, Paul explains it very simply. Jesus died for our sins and came back alive. All of this the old testament predicted would happen.
How has this simple truth transformed my thinking and life? In almost every way. The great love of God was poured out upon me as the blood of Jesus was poured out. My sin debt was transferred upon Hims as He incurred the penalty I deserve. Amazing!
Lord Jesus, help me live in Your resurrection power today as a child of God, forgiven through His Son. Let me know the sweetness of forgiveness and the fellowship fellow believers. May I please You today in what I think, say and do.
