1 Cor 15:1-2 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain.
This morning we are beginning a new devotion series from the “resurrection chapter” of the Bible … 1 Cor 15:
In vs 1-2, Paul emphasizes the gospel’s entrance into to the lives of the Christians in the Corinthian church. First of all, it was PROCLAIMED to them. Next, it was ACCEPTED as truth by them. And thirdly, it became the FOUNDATION upon which they stood.
It is this same gospel message that brought them into a saving relationship with Christ. Their salvation experience was proved to be genuine if they consistently lived their life reflecting its importance and ratifying it in the eyes of others.
To make our calling and election sure (2 Pet 1:10), each of us should ask ourselves this question…. If we were on trial, accused of being Christians, would there be enough evidence to convict us?
May the Lord bless each one of us as we “Think On These Things”.
