15/5 Challenge Day 20

“For I delivered to you first of all that which I also received: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, and that He was buried, and that He rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.” 1 CORINTHIANS 15:3-4 (NKJV)

“According to the Scriptures”…. two times in our verses today this phrase was written. Friends, we can trust the Scriptures! From the Old Testament to the New Testament, the Holy Spirit inspired the authors to write about His death and resurrection, among many other things, and each and every prophecy was fulfilled! Let your hearts be encouraged today that God’s Word is trustworthy, that you too can live “according to the Scriptures!” When you read a verse, let it sink into the deepest crevices of your heart because it is truth!

  1. I also love how in the earlier 2nd verse it says, “by the gospel you are saved.” Then in Romans 1:16 it goes on to talk about what the gospel is: “…it is the power of God for the Salvation of everyone who believes…in the gospel a righteousness from God is revealed, a righteousness that is by faith from first to last…” It is only through faith that we can truly believe! How profound is that! The resurrection is not something that comes naturally to believe in because of how miraculous and unexplainable it is! But when we live by faith we can truly walk as God’s disciples.

    The other awesome thing in 1 Corinthians:15 that I saw, was a little later in verse 10 when Paul was saying, “but by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace to me was not without effect.” Even Paul, who persecuted the Church was saved! What hope we have! When we truly give our heart to Jesus it will not be without effect! We will be changed and by God’s grace he will call us deeper to know Him!
