A Sure Foundation

Today's Bible reading: 1 Corinthians 15:1-58

Our Easter Faith does not prove everything we hold to be true.  Yet without Easter we have nothing.  As our Epistle reading stated quite starkly: if Christ did not die and was not raised according to the Scriptures, God’s whole plan has failed – our faith is pointless … we are still hopelessly lost in sin.  In fact, we could be called the most miserable people of all: gullible fools who have pinned their faith and hope on an illusionBUT…  Paul adds that magnificent BUT.  BUTthe resurrection of Christ is not only true.  It is the promise of your own resurrection as well!

Prayers: Blessed are You, Lord our God, King of the universe.  In love You have given Your Son, Jesus Christ, into death for us and raised Him to life again; so raise us from the death of sin by Your life-giving Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, who lives and reigns with You and the Holy Spirit, one God, now and forever. Amen.
