The Three Points of the Gospel
From 1 Corinthians 15:1-8…
Moreover, brethren, I declare to you the gospel which I preached to you, which also you received and in which you stand, by which also you are saved, if you hold fast that word which I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.
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. After that He was seen by over five hundred brethren at once, of whom the greater part remain to the present, but some have fallen asleep. After that He was seen by James, then by all the apostles. Then last of all He was seen by me also, as by one born out of due time.
The fact that Christ died is history, but the fact that He died for our sins is our theology, our salvation…our Good News!
Christ died for our sins.
He was buried.
He rose again on the third day.
Sing to the Lord, bless His name; Proclaim the good news of His salvation from day to day.
