Title: Good News from Afar

 

1 Corinthians 15:1-2- 1Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, 2and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

 

Romans 3:23-26- 23for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, 24and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, 25whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's righteousness, because in his divine forbearance he had passed over former sins. 26It was to show his righteousness at the present time, so that he might be just and the justifier of the one who has faith in Jesus.

 

1 Corinthians 15:1-2- 1Now I would remind you, brothers, of the gospel I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, 2and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.

 

                             You better watch out, you better not cry

                                Better not pout, I'm telling you why

                                Santa Claus is comin' to town                  

                                He's making a list and checking it twice

                                Gonna find out who's naughty and nice

                                Santa Claus is comin' to town

                                He sees you when you're sleepin'

                                He knows when you're a wake

                                He knows if you've been bad or good

                                So be good for goodness sake   

                               

Romans 6:23- 23For the wages of sin is death, but the free gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord.

 

Quote: “Grace works without requiring anything on our part. It’s not expensive. It’s not even cheap. It’s free.” Rober Farrar Capon 

 

1 Corinthians 15:3- 3For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures, 

 

Mark 2:17- 17And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, "Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners."

                               

1 Corinthians 15:4-  4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the Scriptures

 

Quote:   “If Jesus rose from the dead, then you have to accept all that he said; if he didn't rise from the dead, then why worry about any of what he said?” Tim Keller

                               

Quote:   “If Christ is risen—then nothing else matters. And if Christ is not risen—then nothing else matters.” Jaroslav Pelikan

 

1 Corinthians 15:5-7-  5 and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. 6Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have fallen asleep. 7Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles.

 

1 Corinthians 15:8- 8Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. 

 

1 Corinthians 15:9- 9For I am the least of the apostles, unworthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. 

 

Acts 9:1-2- 1 But Saul, still breathing threats and murder against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest 2and asked him for letters to the synagogues at Damascus, so that if he found any belonging to the Way, men or women, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.

 

1 Corinthians 15:10-11- 10But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me was not in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them, though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. 11Whether then it was I or they, so we preach and so you believed.

 

Quote:   “If I find in myself a desire which no experience in this world can satisfy, the most probable explanation is that I was made for another world.” C.S. Lewis

 

                                Be Reminded

                                Receive Jesus & Be Baptized

 

Quote:                “Heavenly Father, I admit that I am weaker and more sinful than I ever before believed, but through your Son, Jesus, I can be more loved and accepted than I ever dared hope. I thank you that he lived the life I should have lived, and paid the debt and punishment I owe. Receive me now for his sake. I turn from my sins and receive him as Savior. It's in Jesus' name I pray, Amen.”
