What a revelation! Such simple, yet profound and weighty words. The death, burial and resurrection of Jesus Christ. Can anything be more vital and precious than that? What does it mean to you today? So often we get complicated when it comes to the truth of Scripture, and certainly there are “the deep things of God” (1 Corinthians 2:10). But how good to return again and again to the “simplicity that is in Christ” (2 Corinthians 11:3).
As another Lord’s Day is upon us, let’s stop and get back to basics. Let the work of Calvary thrill your heart once again. Read the closing chapters of any one of the four gospels slowly and reverently. It will cause worship, praise and thanksgiving. These are the fundamentals of the gospel and the basis of our eternal blessings.
