Of First Importance

“For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance:
that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures,”
I Corinthians 15:3

There is one thing that matters more than anything else — the gospel (= Good News) of Jesus Christ. What is the gospel? Paul gives four points:

  1. Jesus died for our sins (v. 3)
  2. Jesus was buried (v. 4)
  3. Jesus was resurrected (v. 4)
  4. Jesus appeared to many (v. 5)

This message is what I must build my life around, and believe in with all my heart. If these four things are true and if I trust in them, they will affect every aspect of my life.

Praise Jesus!
