Vintage Gwen Chapel-Scripture Spotlight

This past Monday SheReadsTruth started a new reading plan, This Is The Gospel. 
{SheReadsTruth is an online community where we study the Bible together, it's quite awesome!}
Man has it been good!
In Friday's reading one scripture just completely tore me up and I couldn't help but let the tears fall.
1 Corinthians 15:14
"And if Christ has not been raised, our preaching is useless and so is your faith."

This is how the Amplifed reads....
"And if Christ has not risen, then our preaching is in vain [it amounts to nothing] and your faith is devoid of truth  and  is fruitless (without effect, empty, imaginary, and unfounded)."

Useless, vain, devoid of truth, fruitless, without effect, empty, imaginary, unfounded.
One necessary thing negated those words...
The Resurrection.  
He did rise! He didn't stay dead!
Just let that sink in.

It was probably more the Christ didn't stay dead words that led to the waterworks. I rely a lot on my faith to get me through....right now it's the struggle of being a good's rough business being a toddler let me tell ya! And so for me to read that my faith is not in vain because He is risen...well it was like a breath of fresh God was saying  "It's all going to be ok".  And at just the right moment that I need to be reassured.  
Will you be reassured with me?

Go HERE to read Friday's devotion.
Be blessed!
