The Good News

1 Corinthians 15:1-2

“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, 2 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.”

Paul is reminding the Corinthians of the good news.  The Corinthians seem to have forgotten it.  The people in the church of Corinth were suffering from arrogance, jealousy, factions, quarrels, and a variety of other problems and sins.  So Paul reminds them of why the church exists.  The good news.  The gospel.   Christ.  

Because of the good news, we have eternal life.  If we are the church, we are the tellers of this good news; the examples of the good news.  It is because of the good news that the church stands.

Let us hold firmly to the message of the good news.  It is our hope, and it is the hope of the world.

May the love of Christ be with you

Rev. Eric Lanier
