1 Corinthians 15:1-11

2010-02-03 — Here at Agnus Day Central, we’ve always admired Paul’s sense for shameless self-promotion. We wish we had that kind of style.

BIBLE PASSAGE — Now I would remind you, brothers and sisters, of the good news that I proclaimed to you, which you in turn received, in which also you stand, through which also you are being saved, if you hold firmly to the message that I proclaimed to you—unless you have come to believe in vain. For I handed on to you as of first importance what I in turn had received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the scriptures, and that he was buried, and that he was raised on the third day in accordance with the scriptures, and that he appeared to Cephas, then to the twelve. Then he appeared to more than five hundred brothers and sisters at one time, most of whom are still alive, though some have died. Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles. Last of all, as to one untimely born, he appeared also to me. For I am the least of the apostles, unfit to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of God. But by the grace of God I am what I am, and his grace toward me has not been in vain. On the contrary, I worked harder than any of them—though it was not I, but the grace of God that is with me. Whether then it was I or they, so we proclaim and so you have come to believe. — Fifth Sunday after the Epiphany, Series C

    My confirmation students say why worry about a book at all. They figure they know Jesus is their savior, whoever he is, got it covered, no worries. Now if I could only help them realize his presence TODAY, not just someday when they’re dying. “Yeah, like that’s gonna happen anytime soon” they’d say. sigh.
