Sharing Christ

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, and that He was seen by Cephas, then by the twelve.  
(1 Corinthians 15:3-5)

The Lord Jesus Christ died for our sins, was buried and rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.  

In His trial before Pilate, Jesus said, “For this cause I was born, and for this cause I have come into the world, that I should bear witness to the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears My voice.”  (John 18:37)

It is not by our merits but God in His great mercy and love has called us out of darkness that we may know the hope of His calling, the riches of the glory of His inheritance in the saints and the exceeding greatness of His power! 

It is by faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that we are saved. 

As we obey God, we do not walk in sin and find ourselves mired in the quicksand of death and destruction.  

We are set free to live an abundant life and thus able to thankfully, joyfully and victoriously proclaim “Oh come, let us sing to the LORD! Let us shout joyfully to the Rock of our salvation.” (Psalm 95:1)

The cross of Calvary is meant for all that none should perish but have eternal life. 

Our Risen Savior commands us to go and make disciples of all nations.  

Let your life be an epistle of Christ by sharing "Christ in you, the hope of glory” (Col 1:27).

We have a Master to serve.
