The simple message

“I passed on to you what was most important and what had also been passed on to me. Christ died for our sins, just as the Scriptures said. He was buried, and he was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said. He was seen by Peter and then by the Twelve. After that, he was seen by more than 500 of his followers at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. Then he was seen by James and later by all the apostles. Last of all, as though I had been born at the wrong time, I also saw him.”
‭‭1 Corinthians‬ ‭15:3-8‬ ‭NLT‬‬.

This has been explained to be one of the most important set of verses in the Bible. IT IS THE GOSPEL! Christ died for our sins, he was resurrected, and appeared to a bunch of people. There is nothing else. If we believe in this, we will live with Jesus in eternity.

This is also, exactly, what we should be sharing when we GO. If we don't share this message, there is no hope. Our message is simple, it is clear, and accepting these verses will change your life, literally, forever. How many times have you shared this specific message? Have you ever uttered these words to a nonbeliever?  Look deep inside yourself and reflect on what kind of believer you are. Is it what God has called you to be? Pray that God will put you where he wants you. Pray he will guide your words and actions to bring others to the Gospel and then to eternity.
