What do you take your stand on?
I think it was a country song that had the words, "you've got to stand for something or you'll fall for anything." Paul says that the most important thing to take a stand on is Christ death, burial and resurrection. Paul is saying the one thing that I will not waver from, the one thing that is central and key to my life, the one thing that I am living for, and the one thing that I willing to die for is that Christ lived and died for my sin, was dead and buried and was raised on the third day. This is the gospel. This is the good news. Sin does not win. Jesus does. Death does not win. Jesus does. New life. Life everlasting. Jesus wins for me because he loves me. All he ask is that I love him in return.
In Christ's love and mine,
