Of First Importance!

1 Cor 15:1-8    1 Now, brothers, I want to remind you of the gospel I preached to you, which you received and on which you have taken your stand. 2 By this gospel you are saved, if you hold firmly to the word I preached to you. Otherwise, you have believed in vain.3 For what I received I passed on to you as of first importance: that Christ died for our sins according to the Scriptures, 4 that he was buried, that he was raised on the third day according to the Scriptures, 5 and that he appeared to Peter, and then to the Twelve. 6 After that, he appeared to more than five hundred of the brothers at the same time, most of whom are still living, though some have fallen asleep. 7 Then he appeared to James, then to all the apostles, 8 and last of all he appeared to me also, as to one abnormally born.

Can’t wait for Easter weekend!   4 Great Services at Grace Fellowship.   GFC Family – I hope you’re praying and inviting like crazy.   Good Friday Service 7pm  *  Saturday Service 5pm  *  Sunday Services 9:30am  & 11:00am.     Pray for thousands to attend and hundreds to trust Christ as Savior!    It’s going to be an awesome weekend.

We have a Big God who has a vision that’s so much BIGGER than ours.   He’s given us an incredible opportunity to be a part of what He’s doing in this region.  Let’s not get sloppy or lazy – as Jesus said: “The fields are white unto harvest.”   In other words – there are a lot of people who are ready to receive the Good News of Jesus Christ —–but you and I have to do our part to share with them  —- or at the very least invite them to come to a place where they’ll experience God’s love & grace and hear a very clear presentation of the Gospel of Truth!

Can’t wait to see how God is going to use us this Easter !
