WHO DIED AND MADE YOU AN APOSTLE?

“JESUS”

That’s the answer Paul gives to critics who say he isn’t in the same league as Jesus’ disciples-a dozen men who share the highest office in the early church. The closest the Bible comes to defining apostle is when the word first shows up-when Jesus” 11 disciples search for someone to replace Judas. Candidates must come “from among the men who were with us the entire time we were traveling with the Lord Jesus-from the time he was baptized by John until the day he was taken from us” (Acts 1:21-22). There’s no hint that Paul ever met Jesus during that time. Paul didn’t even convert until about five years after

We need each other. It is easier to do right when there are others to encourage us (Ecclesiastes 4:10, 11). But that is not the focus of this tract. Many people believe they can get to heaven alone-with only one of God’s list of salvation essentials.  Interestingly,  the  word  “alone”  is  found  108  times  in  Scripture (37 times in the New Testament) but is never used with any one of the twenty-six different things to which salvation is attributed.  Let’s examine some of the ways that people try to get to heaven “alone.”

SCRIPTURE OF THE DAY 1 CORINTHIANS 15:1-9 (CHRIST ROSE FROM THE DEAD)

empty-tomb

Now let me remind you, brothers, of what the Gospel really is, for it has not changed-it is the same Good News I preached to you before. You welcomed it then and still do now, for your faith is squarely built upon this wonderful message; and it is this Good News that saves you if you still firmly believe it, unless of course you never really believe it in the first place.
