Today's SoulFood Reading

for Sunday, Apr 09

‘He was raised from the dead on the third day, just as the Scriptures said.’ 1 Corinthians 15:4 NLT

Paul wrote: ‘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… Then He was seen by James and later by all the apostles. Last of all… I also saw Him.’ (1 Corinthians 15:3–8 NLT)

Some of history’s greatest intellectuals started as atheists and ended up putting their trust in Christ. Why? They examined the evidence! If Jesus was who He claimed to be, God incarnate, taking upon Himself human form, dying for our sins and rising again, then they knew they had a life–changing decision to make: either accept Him or reject Him. And you must make that same decision.

Peter told his listeners on the day of Pentecost: ‘You nailed Him to a cross…But God…raised Him back to life.’ (Acts 2:23–24 NLT)

They said, ‘What should we do?’ Peter replied, ‘Each of you must repent of your sins and turn to God.’ (Acts 2:37–38 NLT) That day three thousand souls were won to Christ and the church was launched. Bottom line, Jesus died for your sins and rose again to represent you as your advocate before the throne of God. If you are wise you will accept Him as your Lord and Saviour—knowing that He will give you an abundant life now, and eternal life in Heaven.

SoulFood: 1 Cor 15, Luke 24:1–12
