1 Corinthians 15
1Co 15:1 Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand;
IN THIS CHAPTER, PAUL OUTLINES what the gospel he preached is.
In this our day, the gospel is many things to many people. Many misconstrue the gospel to be about money, power and wealth. As a result such people try to use the gospel for gain. If they go to church and they are not thought how to make more money they are not happy.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is more than money.
Remember that this gospel Paul preached is the same gospel he said that he received.
1Co 15:3 -4, For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how 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:
You see that the gospel is that Jesus died for our sins, that He was buried and that He rose again the third day.
That is the gospel that Paul received and preached. And it is the gospel that we must preach. There is no other gospel but that.
The gospel is about the forgiveness of our sins. And the fact that we have been made New Creations as a result of accepting Christ as our Lord and personal savior.
This is the gospel we must preach. No man can resist the gospel, for the human problem is the same all over the world. Humanity has the same sin problem regardless of civilization, education, economics, social status etc.
The gospel of Jesus Christ is the ONLY ANSWER to the problems of humanity. Those that embrace the gospel and live by the Holy Word of God rule the world.
Mahatma Gandhi once asked Queen Victoria how come such a tiny island as Britain is governing and ruling the world. She lifted up a Bible and said to him, “This book is the reason!”
If you have embraced the gospel, begin to live by it! There is greatness in God waiting for you.
To the ends of the earth!
God bless you richly with great grace and many blessings!
