Scripture doesn’t lie!

Be the Dad


Paul began this with a reminder. He said “brothers and sisters, of the gospel that I preached to you, which you received, in which you stand, and by which you are being saved, if you hold fast to the word I preached to you—unless you believed in vain.” You will notice in verses 3 and 4 that Paul is pointing toward the Old Testament as the absolute authority, calling it the Scriptures for them. Everything that happened in Jesus’ life was all prophesied years earlier.

Glorious Day

As I was exercising today, I was listening to Casting Crowns. The song was ‘Glorious Day (Living He Loved Me)’. I got caught up in the beautiful words of truth in the chorus.

     “Living, He loved me
     Dying, He saved me
     Buried, he carried my sins far away
     Rising, He justified freely forever
     One day He’s coming
     Oh glorious day, oh glorious day”

The gospel

That’s the gospel in a nutshell. Of course, he ascended back to the Father. And that’s from which he will be coming again on that glorious day. The question for us is the same as it was for the Corinthians. Do we believe it, are we holding fast to the truth of the gospel? Hopefully, none reading this have believed it in vain. And I might add, are we living as those who are holding fast to his word? The world today, as maybe never before, needs to see the gospel lived out. It’s our strongest witness.
