The message of first importance in the Bible is "Christ died for our sins... and was raised on the third day." Elsewhere, Paul also said that he "decided to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ and him crucified." (1Cor 2:2). In other words, the central message of the Bible is the gospel.
And this gospel speaks of 3 nails- that represent the immeasurable suffering of God's Son on the cross for our sins.
It also speaks of 3 days- that the saddest and gladdest days of the whole world were just 3 days apart.
And finally, 3 words- Jesus loves me. It sounds simple, but it speaks of a profound love of God for unworthy sinners.
Come and find out the central message of the gospel, and how this can change your life in this sermon today.
