THE GOSPEL IN A NUTSHELL It was a great time of nourishment by the Word as congregants at the CELVZ Sunday service fed on the Word as taught by our man of God, Pastor Chris. During this time, the hearts of the people opened to the legality and vitality of our salvation when our man of God explained the sufficiency of Christ's sacrifice on the cross. YOU IN CHRIST AND CHRIST IN YOU For all have sinned... (Romans 3:23). The challenge of sin was solved after Jesus died a substitutionary, vicarious death as our substitute. He satisfied the claims of justice on the cross. Now that He's in and we're in Him, we can bless others in the name of Jesus. The moment of great excitement was when he elucidated on the Gospel in a nutshell, which is: "In Christ's substitutionary, vicarious death, my sins were remitted; and in His resurrection and new birth, I resurrected"- Pastor Chris. Our man of God then showed us the vitality of this, by personalizing it and asking us to do the same: "When I received the message of salvation, (that is in Christ's substitutionary, vicarious death, my sins were remitted; and in His resurrection and new birth, I resurrected) and I affirmed or confessed it, I received by faith the new life of Resurrection and I was at once recreated, born anew and justified" If one doesn't believe in the resurrection, he's still in his sins, because the resurrection of Jesus from the dead was proof that Christ's sacrifice was accepted. #CELVZ
