“For I delivered to you as of first importance what I also received: that Christ died for our sins in accordance with the Scriptures.” (1 Corinthians 15:3, ESV)
We are creatures of priorities. We are taught very early in life to prioritize almost anything we can think of. We make lists of events, responsibilities, duties, goals, objectives, and plans. All most always the most important item is placed for on our “lists” is placed at the top.
What can be of more priority or importance than the gospel? If there is anything other than the gospel that we as believers should be most passionate about, I don’t know what it is. The gospel is the only thing that can be of the “first importance” to any of us.
Christ died for our sins! This truth colors every aspect of our lives. This is our world-view. This realization governs every moment of every day. Christ died for our sins. We need to think on this, rejoice in this, and to make it our greatest priority.
