chronological day 326 :)

The reading might be light today, but the concepts are not.  Please read 1 Corinthians 14 and 15.  Got a highlight? I’d love to hear from you!  Come on back and let’s visit:

Chapter 14 might present a controversy to some, but don’t let it bring confusion to you. Tongues is a spiritual gift, but it is not a salvation issue. Don’t get “hung up” on tongues, okay?  (I wish I had time to address it, I think it’s so important –  however, I also think you make it to heaven without it). You have to believe in Jesus to get to heaven. Paul addresses that next:

“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” 1 Corinthians 15:1-3 NKJV

15:3 – “First of all” or could be translated as “most importantly” – Jesus died for our sins, was buried and rose again. If that part isn’t true, then Paul tells us that we have “believed in vain”.  Mercifully, it IS true!  Jesus has risen!

If you get hung up on an issue, get hung up on that one: salvation. 🙂 Hallelujah, Jesus is alive!
