The true Gospel message

By Ken Chester Guest author

“The first thing I did was place before you what was placed so emphatically before me: that the Messiah died for our sins, exactly as Scripture tells it; that he was buried; that he was raised from death on the third day, exactly as Scripture says…— 1 Corinthians 15:3-4 The Message
This message has stood every assault and attack for over 2000 years. God found you with these words: exactly as Scripture tells it. These same words changed lives then and still change lives today. The attacks will not let up. The assault on these words will increase and at times sound deafening. No matter, these words are meant to be worn on the inside and lived on the outside. The one who wrote these words tried his best to stamp them out. Instead, God stamped these words upon his heart and changed him into a word-spreader. You’ll find yourself coming alive as these words become the reality of how you are going to live. Jesus, Messiah, died for your sins (others too!), buried, raised on the third day. It’s never going to be an easy message to share. But when you do, you’ll find that God has already prepared the once hardened soil of another man’s heart. Are you letting these Scriptures be real in you today? It only takes a moment …

“He creates each of us by Christ Jesus to join him in the work he does, the good work he has gotten ready for us to do, work we had better be doing.”

— Ephesians 2:10 The Message
