The Resurrection of Jesus Christ – Our Lord & Savior

29 Mar

clouds4What a wonderful privilege it is to be called the sons of God! But it did not come easy. It took the hugest sacrifice God ever made – giving his one and only Son and it took Jesus giving up His life on the cross so that we could have life. By this one act all mankind have been given a way to eternal salvation, THE ONLY WAY out of eternal damnation. Jesus Christ is the way, the truth and the life.

“Now, brothers and sisters, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.

For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance[a]: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas,[b] and then to the Twelve. After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers and sisters at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

For I am the least of the apostles and do not even deserve to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 10 But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect. No, I worked harder than all of them—yet not I, but the grace of God that was with me. 11 Whether, then, it is I or they, this is what we preach, and this is what you believed.”

1st Corinthians 15:1-10
