Christ died for our sins, as the Scriptures say. 1 CORINTHIANS 15:3
Maybe you’ve gone through the acts of religion and faith and yet found yourself more often than not at a dry well. Prayers seem empty. Goals seem unthinkable. Christianity becomes a warped record full of highs and lows and off-key notes.
Is this all there is? Sunday attendance. Pretty songs. Faithful tithings. Golden crosses. Three-piece suits. Big choirs. Leather Bibles. It is nice and all, but … where is the heart of it? …
Think about these words from Paul in 1 Corinthians 15:3. “I passed on to you what I received, of which this was most important: that Christ died for our sins, as the Scriptures say.”
There it is. Almost too simple. Jesus was killed, buried, and resurrected. Surprised? The part that matters is the Cross. No more and no less.
