I Corinthians 15:3 ” For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures…”

That life-changing encounter with Jesus was the start of your journey as a Believer.  You marveled at the grace, mercy, and loving kindness that was extended to you… a sinner that only deserved death.  You became a recipient of the greatest gift ever…the free gift of eternal life.  But for many of us we stop there, never sharing this Good News with others.  We instead hold tightly to this gift refusing to share…desiring to just keep it to ourselves.  But Paul tells us in this verse that first we are a receiver, but then we become a messenger… an ambassador for Christ, telling others about Him.  Paul goes on in I Corinthians 11:2, ” I praise you for remembering me in everything and for holding to the teachings, just as I passed them on to you.”   How can we keep such wonderful, life-changing news to ourselves? The Lord wants us to pass it on to others.  So today, tell someone how Jesus is working in your life.
